Advanced Algorithms in Cybersecurity

Any suggestion on where to find more information on using advanced algorithms in cybersecurity? For example, using machine learning algorithms (Neural Networks) in anomaly detection.

Re: Advanced Algorithms in Cybersecurity

Cylance seems to be active in this field:

 

Introduction to AI for Security: https://threatvector.cylance.com/en_us/home/introduction-to-ai-for-security.html

 

And another thing might be: https://www.darktrace.com/en/

 

Unfortunately, I am not sure about "open source" AI stuff for IT sec yet.

[Sigh.]

You might want to study up on expert systems. Learn some functional
programming. (You'll probably need to learn Smalltalk, Eiffel, or Prolog to get a
grip on it.) Expert systems are probably better at anomaly detection. (of course,
you have to be an expert, first ...)

You might want to study up on neural networks. Learning a bit of neurobiology
might help, as well. (Please note: the advice on never testing your system with
production data? That goes in spades for neural networks. And watch out for
superstitious learning ...)

It's not *really* in this line, but you might try some genetic programming, as well.
Just to make sure you know where the boundaries are ...

I'd talk to your local university and find out how many courses they have on
different types of AI and ML ...

(And maybe do a bit of study on quantum computing, too, so you have something
to test your AI results against ...)

That's the problem with randomness. You can never be sure.

Re: Advanced Algorithms in Cybersecurity

There is a good ML course: https://www.coursera.org/learn/machine-learning

 

But you might want to use https://github.com/dibgerge/ml-coursera-python-assignments to do it via Python.

 

It is pretty heavy on math tbh. So "Introduction to Machine Learning for Coders" might be a good alternative: https://course.fast.ai/ml

I believe your question may be too broad, without a clear delineation of just what an algorithm is, or how they are used. For instance, a neural networks is not an algorithm, it is a type of computing architecture.

 

I think @rslade gave you a good answer over in
