Divided into two major parts, Enhancing Computer Security with Smart Technology introduces the problems of computer security to researchers with a machine learning background, then introduces machine learning concepts to computer security professionals. Realizing the massive scope of these subjects, the author concentrates on problems related to the detection of intrusions through the application of machine learning methods and on the practical algorithmic aspects of machine learning and its role in security. A collection of tutorials that draw from a broad spectrum of viewpoints and experience, this volume is made up of chapters written by specialists in each subject field. It is accessible to any professional with a basic background in computer science. Following an introduction to the issue of cyber-security and cyber-trust, the book offers a broad survey of the state-of-the-art in firewall technology and of the importance of Web application security. The remainder of the book focuses on the use of machine learning methods and tools and their performance.In this case, the defensive software is installed on every protected host computer. ... Furthermore, this may demand a customized detection policy to reduce false- alarm rate. ... Instead of building one centralized IDS passively defending a system, one can conceivably have a team of cooperating autonomous agents actively defending and ... For rapid response, manual methods are not quite adequate.
