Nowadays, security attacks on information and communication technology (ICT) are increasing. The ever-expanding utilization of the Internet has given rise to various types of new vulnerabilities and approaches to attack computer and communication systems; thus, making computers and network security a major concern. Due to the increasing pervasiveness of modern attacks, many organizations—mainly large commercial organizations—invest over 10% of their total ICT budget directly in network and computer security. The dynamic nature of security attacks—such as data compression, visualization, Advanced Persistent Threat (APT), ransomware, Internet of Things (IoT) attacks, and supply chain attacks—has caused an increased dynamicity of the security threats landscape, making traditional security approaches less efficient.
On the other hand, the symmetry-adapted machine-learning paradigm is an emerging Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology that relies on the extraction and analysis of data to identify hidden patterns of data. It can extract and analyze data from ICT systems over the Internet, which further enables the detection of hidden and new attack patterns to tackle information security threats and challenges. Various machine learning techniques including clustering, association rules, and classification mechanisms can provide effective solutions to generalize and discover attack patterns for handling the recent information security threats such as malicious code, data leak, ransomware, APTs, data compression, etc. Moreover, emerging machine-learning paradigms, such as deep learning and extreme learning machine, can deal with incomplete and inconsistent information using pattern recognition and enable the detection of security attacks with limited computation capacity and lower detection times.
This Special Issue emphasizes the development and application of the machine learning paradigm to handle information security issues in computers and communication systems. We invite original and unpublished works that will contribute the continuing efforts to understand machine learning techniques in the field of information security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Detection of information security threats using symmetry-adapted machine learning
- Symmetry-adapted machine learning for intrusion detection and prevention
- Fraud evasion and detection using symmetry-adapted machine learning
- Symmetry in adversarial machine learning for information security
- Symmetry-adapted machine learning techniques for identifying information and data leakage
- Symmetry in sequential learning for information security
- Symmetry in efficient big data mining to protect against security attacks
- Innovative deep learning framework for efficient detection of security attacks
- Symmetry in meta-heuristic paradigm for information security
- Design and development of intelligent security framework
- Symmetry in cognitive science for information security using machine learning
- Monitoring tool to secure symmetric communication network
- Machine learning for symmetric social networks security
