Enhancing Cybersecurity by Defeating the Attack Lifecycle: Using Mobile Device Resource Usage Patterns to Detect Unauthentic Mobile Applications

Abstract:

Attacks are usually orchestrated based upon the motivation of the attackers, who are becoming increasingly savvy, better resourced, and more committed. This article examines cyber threats and vulnerabilities through the eyes of the perpetrator. To begin, the authors discuss some counter approaches that have produced limited benefits at best, and then introduce a novel approach that details the use of mobile device resource usage to discern unauthentic mobile applications from authentic applications.

Network-Based Anomaly Detection Using Discriminant Analysis

ABSTRACT

Anomaly-based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) can be a valuable tool for detecting novel network attacks. This paper analyzes the use of linear and non-linear discriminant analysis on packet header information from Transport and Internet layers of the TCP/IP model to classify packets as normal or abnormal. By training on normal traffic for a particular service (web and secure shell) and known attacks, the classifier can automatically identify differences between packets that may be used to classify future unknown traffic.

Securing the Cloud

ABSTRACT

This paper will review cloud technology utilized to support the Intelligence Community and will specifically address the National Security Agency’s research into vulnerabilities and risks related to cloud-based systems. Current implementation plans will be discussed for a multi- agency private cloud architecture that is under development. The paper will also review security challenges for a cloud architecture and will address specific technologies, such as data tagging, digital policy management, encryption, identity and access management, and auditing, along with intrusion detection and prevention.
