Cyber Threat Intelligence Excerpt :

This book provides readers with up-to-date research of emerging cyber threats and defensive mechanisms, which are timely and essential. It covers cyber threat intelligence concepts against a range of threat actors and threat tools (i.e. ransomware) in cutting-edge technologies, i.e., Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud computing and mobile devices. This book also provides the technical information on cyber-threat detection methods required for the researcher and digital forensics experts, in order to build intelligent automated systems to fight against advanced cybercrimes. The ever increasing number of cyber-attacks requires the cyber security and forensic specialists to detect, analyze and defend against the cyber threats in almost real-time, and with such a large number of attacks is not possible without deeply perusing the attack features and taking corresponding intelligent defensive actions – this in essence defines cyber threat intelligence notion. However, such intelligence would not be possible without the aid of artificial intelligence, machine learning and advanced data mining techniques to collect, analyze, and interpret cyber-attack campaigns which is covered in this book. This book will focus on cutting-edge research from both academia and industry, with a particular emphasis on providing wider knowledge of the field, novelty of approaches, combination of tools and so forth to perceive reason, learn and act on a wide range of data collected from different cyber security and forensics solutions. This book introduces the notion of cyber threat intelligence and analytics and presents different attempts in utilizing machine learning and data mining techniques to create threat feeds for a range of consumers. Moreover, this book sheds light on existing and emerging trends in the field which could pave the way for future works. The inter-disciplinary nature of this book, makes it suitable for a wide range of audiences with backgrounds in artificial intelligence

Handbook of Big Data and IoT Security Excerpt :

This handbook provides an overarching view of cyber security and digital forensic challenges related to big data and IoT environment, prior to reviewing existing data mining solutions and their potential application in big data context, and existing authentication and access control for IoT devices. An IoT access control scheme and an IoT forensic framework is also presented in this book, and it explains how the IoT forensic framework can be used to guide investigation of a popular cloud storage service. A distributed file system forensic approach is also presented, which is used to guide the investigation of Ceph. Minecraft, a Massively Multiplayer Online Game, and the Hadoop distributed file system environment are also forensically studied and their findings reported in this book. A forensic IoT source camera identification algorithm is introduced, which uses the camera's sensor pattern noise from the captured image. In addition to the IoT access control and forensic frameworks, this handbook covers a cyber defense triage process for nine advanced persistent threat (APT) groups targeting IoT infrastructure, namely: APT1, Molerats, Silent Chollima, Shell Crew, NetTraveler, ProjectSauron, CopyKittens, Volatile Cedar and Transparent Tribe. The characteristics of remote-controlled real-world Trojans using the Cyber Kill Chain are also examined. It introduces a method to leverage different crashes discovered from two fuzzing approaches, which can be used to enhance the effectiveness of fuzzers. Cloud computing is also often associated with IoT and big data (e.g., cloud-enabled IoT systems), and hence a survey of the cloud security literature and a survey of botnet detection approaches are presented in the book. Finally, game security solutions are studied and explained how one may circumvent such solutions. This handbook targets the security, privacy and forensics research community, and big data research community, including policy makers and government agencies, publ

Digital Forensics and Investigations Excerpt :

Digital forensics has been a discipline of Information Security for decades now. Its principles, methodologies, and techniques have remained consistent despite the evolution of technology, and, ultimately, it and can be applied to any form of digital data. However, within a corporate environment, digital forensic professionals are particularly challenged. They must maintain the legal admissibility and forensic viability of digital evidence in support of a broad range of different business functions that include incident response, electronic discovery (ediscovery), and ensuring the controls and accountability of such information across networks. Digital Forensics and Investigations: People, Process, and Technologies to Defend the Enterprise provides the methodologies and strategies necessary for these key business functions to seamlessly integrate digital forensic capabilities to guarantee the admissibility and integrity of digital evidence. In many books, the focus on digital evidence is primarily in the technical, software, and investigative elements, of which there are numerous publications. What tends to get overlooked are the people and process elements within the organization. Taking a step back, the book outlines the importance of integrating and accounting for the people, process, and technology components of digital forensics. In essence, to establish a holistic paradigm—and best-practice procedure and policy approach—to defending the enterprise. This book serves as a roadmap for professionals to successfully integrate an organization’s people, process, and technology with other key business functions in an enterprise’s digital forensic capabilities.

Crime Science and Digital Forensics Excerpt :

This volume is a collation of articles on counter forensics practices and digital investigative methods from the perspective of crime science. The book also shares alternative dialogue on information security techniques used to protect data from unauthorised access and manipulation. Scandals such as those at OPCW and Gatwick Airport have reinforced the importance of crime science and the need to take proactive measures rather than a wait and see approach currently used by many organisations. This book proposes a new approach in dealing with cybercrime and unsociable behavior involving remote technologies using a combination of evidence-based disciplines in order to enhance cybersecurity and authorised controls. It starts by providing a rationale for combining selected disciplines to enhance cybersecurity by discussing relevant theories and highlighting the features that strengthen privacy when mixed. The essence of a holistic model is brought about by the challenge facing digital forensic professionals within environments where tested investigative practices are unable to provide satisfactory evidence and security. This book will be of interest to students, digital forensic and cyber security practitioners and policy makers. It marks a new route in the study of combined disciplines to tackle cybercrime using digital investigations and crime science.
