In view of the increasingly severe network security situation of power information system, this paper draws on the experience of construction of security technology system at home and abroad, with the continuous monitoring and analysis as the core, covering the closed-loop management of defense, detection, response and prediction security as the starting point, Based on the existing defense-based static security protection architecture, a dynamic security technology architecture based on detection and response is established. Compared with the traditional PDR architecture, the architecture adds security threat prediction, strengthens behavior-based detection, and further explains the concept of dynamic defense, so that it can adapt to changes in the grid IT infrastructure and business application systems. A unified security strategy can be formed to deal with more secretive and professional advanced attacks in the future. The architecture emphasizes that network security is a cyclical confrontation process. Enterprise network security thinking should change from the past “emergency response” to “continuous response”, real-time dynamic analysis of security threats, and automatically adapt to changing networks and threat environments, and Constantly optimize its own security defense mechanism, thus effectively solving the problem of the comprehensive technology transformation and upgrading of the security technology system from the traditional passive defense to the active sensing, from the simple defense to the active confrontation, and from the independent protection to the intelligence-driven. At the same time, the paper also gives the technical evolution route of the architecture, which provides a planning basis and a landing method for the continuous fulfillment of the new requirements of the security of the power information system during the 13th Five-Year Plan period.

Xu, W., Yan, Z., Tian, Y., Cui, Y., Lin, J..  2017.  Detection with compressive measurements corrupted by sparse errors. 2017 9th International Conference on Wireless Communications and Signal Processing (WCSP). :1–5.

Compressed sensing can represent the sparse signal with a small number of measurements compared to Nyquist-rate samples. Considering the high-complexity of reconstruction algorithms in CS, recently compressive detection is proposed, which performs detection directly in compressive domain without reconstruction. Different from existing work that generally considers the measurements corrupted by dense noises, this paper studies the compressive detection problem when the measurements are corrupted by both dense noises and sparse errors. The sparse errors exist in many practical systems, such as the ones affected by impulse noise or narrowband interference. We derive the theoretical performance of compressive detection when the sparse error is either deterministic or random. The theoretical results are further verified by simulations.

We introduce MobiCeal, the first practical Plausibly Deniable Encryption (PDE) system for mobile devices that can defend against strong coercive multi-snapshot adversaries, who may examine the storage medium of a user's mobile device at different points of time and force the user to decrypt data. MobiCeal relies on "dummy write" to obfuscate the differences between multiple snapshots of storage medium due to existence of hidden data. By incorporating PDE in block layer, MobiCeal supports a broad deployment of any block-based file systems on mobile devices. More importantly, MobiCeal is secure against side channel attacks which pose a serious threat to existing PDE schemes. A proof of concept implementation of MobiCeal is provided on an LG Nexus 4 Android phone using Android 4.2.2. It is shown that the performance of MobiCeal is significantly better than prior PDE systems against multi-snapshot adversaries.

It is a challenging problem to preserve the friendly-correlations between individuals when publishing social-network data. To alleviate this problem, uncertain graph has been presented recently. The main idea of uncertain graph is converting an original graph into an uncertain form, where the correlations between individuals is an associated probability. However, the existing methods of uncertain graph lack rigorous guarantees of privacy and rely on the assumption of adversary's knowledge. In this paper we first introduced a general model for constructing uncertain graphs. Then, we proposed an algorithm under the model which is based on differential privacy and made an analysis of algorithm's privacy. Our algorithm provides rigorous guarantees of privacy and against the background knowledge attack. Finally, the algorithm we proposed satisfied differential privacy and showed feasibility in the experiments. And then, we compare our algorithm with (k, ε)-obfuscation algorithm in terms of data utility, the importance of nodes for network in our algorithm is similar to (k, ε)-obfuscation algorithm.
