Abstract

In this seminar, Dr Kim will introduce four main research topics he has been working on summarised as GAME (Graphical security models, AI security, Moving Target Defense, Evolving attacks and defense automation/evaluation). First, recent advances in graphical security models (attack graphs, attack trees, HARM) and metrics will be introduced with their applications. Second, security attacks to AI (ML/DL) systems and their general defense techniques will be briefly introduced and my focus areas on AI security (Intrusion Detection System) will be introduced. Third, moving target defense, which is a promising proactive defense technique, will be introduced with its 3 dimensions (what, when, how to move) and some research issues. Finally, how graphical security models, measurement, metrics, and AI planning techniques can be effectively adopted to enable cyber-attack and defense automation and evaluation.
