Hands-On Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity

By: Alessandro Parisi

Overview of this book

Today's organizations spend billions of dollars globally on cybersecurity. Artificial intelligence has emerged as a great solution for building smarter and safer security systems that allow you to predict and detect suspicious network activity, such as phishing or unauthorized intrusions. This cybersecurity book presents and demonstrates popular and successful AI approaches and models that you can adapt to detect potential attacks and protect your corporate systems. You'll learn about the role of machine learning and neural networks, as well as deep learning in cybersecurity, and you'll also learn how you can infuse AI capabilities into building smart defensive mechanisms. As you advance, you'll be able to apply these strategies across a variety of applications, including spam filters, network intrusion detection, botnet detection, and secure authentication. By the end of this book, you'll be ready to develop intelligent systems that can detect unusual and suspicious patterns and attacks, thereby developing strong network security defenses using AI.

In this chapter, we looked at the attack and defense techniques that exploit the adversarial examples created with GANs.

We looked at the concrete threats that can arise from the use of GANs against DNNs that are increasingly at the heart of cybersecurity procedures, such as malware-detection tools, and biometric authentication. In addition to the risks associated with the widespread use of NNs in the management of sensitive data, such as health data, these threats lead to new forms of GAN-based attacks that can compromise even the health and physical safety of citizens.

In the next chapter, we will learn how to evaluate algorithms with the help of several examples.
