Malware Meets Machine Learning
Machine learning has proven to be helpful in many areas in cyber security, e.g., malware detection, intrusion detection, and fuzzing. The ability of machine learning models to identify patterns allows it to be a valuable tool that can be used to increase efficiency and efficacy while also decreasing costs. This becomes especially important as malicious actors continue to develop more sophisticated attacks against a growing attack surface. However, more research must be done before machine learning can be safely integrated into cyber defense as machine learning models themselves are not secure. In this talk, I will be presenting an attack against malware detectors using adversarial machine learning and a defense against such adversaries.
