Xu, Jiahui, Wang, Chen, Li, Tingting, Xiang, Fengtao.  2020.  Improved Adversarial Attack against Black-box Machine Learning Models. 2020 Chinese Automation Congress (CAC). :5907–5912.
The existence of adversarial samples makes the security of machine learning models in practical application questioned, especially the black-box adversarial attack, which is very close to the actual application scenario. Efficient search for black-box attack samples is helpful to train more robust models. We discuss the situation that the attacker can get nothing except the final predict label. As for this problem, the current state-of-the-art method is Boundary Attack(BA) and its variants, such as Biased Boundary Attack(BBA), however it still requires large number of queries and kills a lot of time. In this paper, we propose a novel method to solve these shortcomings. First, we improved the algorithm for generating initial adversarial samples with smaller L2 distance. Second, we innovatively combine a swarm intelligence algorithm - Particle Swarm Optimization(PSO) with Biased Boundary Attack and propose PSO-BBA method. Finally, we experiment on ImageNet dataset, and compared our algorithm with the baseline algorithm. The results show that:(1)our improved initial point selection algorithm effectively reduces the number of queries;(2)compared with the most advanced methods, our PSO-BBA method improves the convergence speed while ensuring the attack accuracy;(3)our method has a good effect on both targeted attack and untargeted attack.

Nowadays, the networks attacks became very sophisticated and hard to be recognized, The traditional types of intrusion detection systems became inefficient in predicting new types of attacks. As the IDS is an important factor in securing the network in the real time, many new effective IDS approaches have been proposed. In this paper, we intend to discuss different Artificial Neural Networks based IDS approaches, also we are going to categorize them in four categories (normal ANN, DNN, CNN, RNN) and make a comparison between them depending on different performance parameters (accuracy, FNR, FPR, training time, epochs and the learning rate) and other factors like the network structure, the classification type, the used dataset. At the end of the survey, we will mention the merits and demerits of each approach and suggest some enhancements to avoid the noticed drawbacks.

Due to their proven efficiency, machine-learning systems are deployed in a wide range of complex real-life problems. More specifically, Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs) emerged as a promising solution to the accuracy, resource-utilization, and energy-efficiency challenges in machine-learning systems. While these systems are going mainstream, they have inherent security and reliability issues. In this paper, we propose NeuroAttack, a cross-layer attack that threatens the SNNs integrity by exploiting low-level reliability issues through a high-level attack. Particularly, we trigger a fault-injection based sneaky hardware backdoor through a carefully crafted adversarial input noise. Our results on Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) and SNNs show a serious integrity threat to state-of-the art machine-learning techniques.

The new switching architecture of the neural networks was proposed. The switching neural networks consist of the neurons and the switchers. The goal is to reduce expenses on the artificial neural network design and training. For realization of complex models, algorithms and methods of management the neural networks of the big size are required. The number of the interconnection links “everyone with everyone” grows with the number of neurons. The training of big neural networks requires the resources of supercomputers. Time of training of neural networks also depends on the number of neurons in the network. Switching neural networks are divided into fragments connected by the switchers. Training of switcher neuron network is provided by fragments. On the basis of switching neural networks the devices of associative memory were designed with the number of neurons comparable to the human brain.

As neural networks make their way into safety-critical systems, where misbehavior can lead to catastrophes, there is a growing interest in certifying the equivalence of two structurally similar neural networks - a problem known as differential verification. For example, compression techniques are often used in practice for deploying trained neural networks on computationally- and energy-constrained devices, which raises the question of how faithfully the compressed network mimics the original network. Unfortunately, existing methods either focus on verifying a single network or rely on loose approximations to prove the equivalence of two networks. Due to overly conservative approximation, differential verification lacks scalability in terms of both accuracy and computational cost. To overcome these problems, we propose NEURODIFF, a symbolic and fine-grained approximation technique that drastically increases the accuracy of differential verification on feed-forward ReLU networks while achieving many orders-of-magnitude speedup. NEURODIFF has two key contributions. The first one is new convex approximations that more accurately bound the difference of two networks under all possible inputs. The second one is judicious use of symbolic variables to represent neurons whose difference bounds have accumulated significant error. We find that these two techniques are complementary, i.e., when combined, the benefit is greater than the sum of their individual benefits. We have evaluated NEURODIFF on a variety of differential verification tasks. Our results show that NEURODIFF is up to 1000X faster and 5X more accurate than the state-of-the-art tool.

A significant challenge in modern computer security is the growing skill gap as intruder capabilities increase, making it necessary to begin automating elements of penetration testing so analysts can contend with the growing number of cyber threats. In this paper, we attempt to assist human analysts by automating a single host penetration attack. To do so, a smart agent performs different attack sequences to find vulnerabilities in a target system. As it does so, it accumulates knowledge, learns new attack sequences and improves its own internal penetration testing logic. As a result, this agent (AgentPen for simplicity) is able to successfully penetrate hosts it has never interacted with before. A computer security administrator using this tool would receive a comprehensive, automated sequence of actions leading to a security breach, highlighting potential vulnerabilities, and reducing the amount of menial tasks a typical penetration tester would need to execute. To achieve autonomy, we apply an unsupervised machine learning algorithm, Q-learning, with an approximator that incorporates a deep neural network architecture. The security audit itself is modelled as a Markov Decision Process in order to test a number of decision-making strategies and compare their convergence to optimality. A series of experimental results is presented to show how this approach can be effectively used to automate penetration testing using a scalable, i.e. not exhaustive, and adaptive approach.

Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs) claim to present many advantages in terms of biological plausibility and energy efficiency compared to standard Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). Recent works have shown that DNNs are vulnerable to adversarial attacks, i.e., small perturbations added to the input data can lead to targeted or random misclassifications. In this paper, we aim at investigating the key research question: "Are SNNs secure?" Towards this, we perform a comparative study of the security vulnerabilities in SNNs and DNNs w.r.t. the adversarial noise. Afterwards, we propose a novel black-box attack methodology, i.e., without the knowledge of the internal structure of the SNN, which employs a greedy heuristic to automatically generate imperceptible and robust adversarial examples (i.e., attack images) for the given SNN. We perform an in-depth evaluation for a Spiking Deep Belief Network (SDBN) and a DNN having the same number of layers and neurons (to obtain a fair comparison), in order to study the efficiency of our methodology and to understand the differences between SNNs and DNNs w.r.t. the adversarial examples. Our work opens new avenues of research towards the robustness of the SNNs, considering their similarities to the human brain's functionality.
Kumar, S. A., Kumar, A., Bajaj, V., Singh, G. K..  2020.  An Improved Fuzzy Min–Max Neural Network for Data Classification. IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems. 28:1910–1924.
Hyperbox classifier is an efficient tool for modern pattern classification problems due to its transparency and rigorous use of Euclidian geometry. Fuzzy min-max (FMM) network efficiently implements the hyperbox classifier, and has been modified several times to yield better classification accuracy. However, the obtained accuracy is not up to the mark. Therefore, in this paper, a new improved FMM (IFMM) network is proposed to increase the accuracy rate. In the proposed IFMM network, a modified constraint is employed to check the expandability of a hyperbox. It also uses semiperimeter of the hyperbox along with k-nearest mechanism to select the expandable hyperbox. In the proposed IFMM, the contraction rules of conventional FMM and enhanced FMM (EFMM) are also modified using semiperimeter of a hyperbox in order to balance the size of both overlapped hyperboxes. Experimental results show that the proposed IFMM network outperforms the FMM, k-nearest FMM, and EFMM by yielding more accuracy rate with less number of hyperboxes. The proposed methods are also applied to histopathological images to know the best magnification factor for classification.

Pattanayak, S., Ludwig, S. A..  2019.  Improving Data Privacy Using Fuzzy Logic and Autoencoder Neural Network. 2019 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE). :1–6.
Data privacy is a very important problem to address while sharing data among multiple organizations and has become very crucial in the health sectors since multiple organizations such as hospitals are storing data of patients in the form of Electronic Health Records. Stored data is used with other organizations or research analysts to improve the health care of patients. However, the data records contain sensitive information such as age, sex, and date of birth of the patients. Revealing sensitive data can cause a privacy breach of the individuals. This has triggered research that has led to many different privacy preserving techniques being introduced. Thus, we designed a technique that not only encrypts / hides the sensitive information but also sends the data to different organizations securely. To encrypt sensitive data we use different fuzzy logic membership functions. We then use an autoencoder neural network to send the modified data. The output data of the autoencoder can then be used by different organizations for research analysis.

In painting, humans can draw an interrelation between the style and the content of a given image in order to enhance visual experiences. Deep neural networks like convolutional neural networks are being used to draw a satisfying conclusion of this problem of neural style transfer due to their exceptional results in the key areas of visual perceptions such as object detection and face recognition.In this study, along with style transfer on whole image it is also outlined how transfer of style can be performed only on the specific parts of the content image which is accomplished by using masks. The style is transferred in a way that there is a least amount of loss to the content image i.e., semantics of the image is preserved.

Zong, P., Wang, Y., Xie, F..  2018.  Embedded Software Fault Prediction Based on Back Propagation Neural Network. 2018 IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability and Security Companion (QRS-C). :553—558.

Predicting software faults before software testing activities can help rational distribution of time and resources. Software metrics are used for software fault prediction due to their close relationship with software faults. Thanks to the non-linear fitting ability, Neural networks are increasingly used in the prediction model. We first filter metric set of the embedded software by statistical methods to reduce the dimensions of model input. Then we build a back propagation neural network with simple structure but good performance and apply it to two practical embedded software projects. The verification results show that the model has good ability to predict software faults.

We investigate a deep learning model for action recognition that simultaneously extracts spatio-temporal information from a raw RGB input data. The proposed multiple spatio-temporal scales recurrent neural network (MSTRNN) model is derived by combining multiple timescale recurrent dynamics with a conventional convolutional neural network model. The architecture of the proposed model imposes both spatial and temporal constraints simultaneously on its neural activities. The constraints vary, with multiple scales in different layers. As suggested by the principle of upward and downward causation, it is assumed that the network can develop a functional hierarchy using its constraints during training. To evaluate and observe the characteristics of the proposed model, we use three human action datasets consisting of different primitive actions and different compositionality levels. The performance capabilities of the MSTRNN model on these datasets are compared with those of other representative deep learning models used in the field. The results show that the MSTRNN outperforms baseline models while using fewer parameters. The characteristics of the proposed model are observed by analyzing its internal representation properties. The analysis clarifies how the spatio-temporal constraints of the MSTRNN model aid in how it extracts critical spatio-temporal information relevant to its given tasks.

The paper reviews a project on the automation of term system construction. TSBuilder (Term System Builder) was developed in 2014 as a multilayer Rosenblatt's perceptron for supervised machine learning, namely 1-3 word terms identification in natural language texts and their rigid categorization. The program is being modified to reduce the rigidity of categorization which will bring text mining more in line with human thinking.We are expanding the range of parameters (semantical, morphological, and syntactical) for categorization, removing the restriction of the term length of three words, using convolution on a continuous sequence of terms, and present the probabilities of a term falling into different categories. The neural network will not assign a single category to a term but give N answers (where N is the number of predefined classes), each of which O ∈ [0, 1] is the probability of the term to belong to a given class.

Intrusion detection system (IDS) has become an essential layer in all the latest ICT system due to an urge towards cyber safety in the day-to-day world. Reasons including uncertainty in finding the types of attacks and increased the complexity of advanced cyber attacks, IDS calls for the need of integration of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). In this paper, DNNs have been utilized to predict the attacks on Network Intrusion Detection System (N-IDS). A DNN with 0.1 rate of learning is applied and is run for 1000 number of epochs and KDDCup-`99' dataset has been used for training and benchmarking the network. For comparison purposes, the training is done on the same dataset with several other classical machine learning algorithms and DNN of layers ranging from 1 to 5. The results were compared and concluded that a DNN of 3 layers has superior performance over all the other classical machine learning algorithms.

In this paper we solve the problem of neural network technology development for e-mail messages classification. We analyze basic methods of spam filtering such as a sender IP-address analysis, spam messages repeats detection and the Bayesian filtering according to words. We offer the neural network technology for solving this problem because the neural networks are universal approximators and effective in addressing the problems of classification.

The creation of effective neural network model of spam filtering is performed within the databases knowledge discovery technology. For this training set is formed, the neural network model is trained, its value and classifying ability are estimated. The experimental studies have shown that a developed artificial neural network model is adequate and it can be effectively used for the e-mail messages classification. Thus, in this paper we have shown the possibility of the effective neural network model use for the e-mail messages filtration and have shown a scheme of artificial neural network model use as a part of the e-mail spam filtering intellectual system.

Research on network security situation awareness is currently a research hotspot in the field of network security. It is one of the easiest and most effective methods to use the BP neural network for security situation prediction. However, there are still some problems in BP neural network, such as slow convergence rate, easy to fall into local extremum, etc. On the other hand, some common used evolutionary algorithms, such as genetic algorithm (GA) and particle swarm optimization (PSO), easily fall into local optimum. Hybrid rice optimization algorithm is a newly proposed algorithm with strong search ability, so the method of this paper is proposed. This article describes in detail the use of BP network security posture prediction method. In the proposed method, HRO is used to train the connection weights of the BP network. Through the advantages of HRO global search and fast convergence, the future security situation of the network is predicted, and the accuracy of the situation prediction is effectively improved.

Security is one of the most important needs in network communication. Cryptography is a science which involves two techniques encryption and decryption and it basically enables to send sensitive and confidential data over the unsecure network. The basic idea of cryptography is concealing of the data from unauthenticated users as they can misuse the data. In this paper we use auto associative neural network concept of soft computing in combination with encryption technique to send data securely on communication network.
Guan, Chengli, Yang, Yue.  2019.  Research of Computer Network Security Evaluation Based on Backpropagation Neural Network. 2019 IEEE International Conference on Power, Intelligent Computing and Systems (ICPICS). :181—184.
In recent years, due to the invasion of virus and loopholes, computer networks in colleges and universities have caused great adverse effects on schools, teachers and students. In order to improve the accuracy of computer network security evaluation, Back Propagation (BP) neural network was trained and built. The evaluation index and target expectations have been determined based on the expert system, with 15 secondary evaluation index values taken as input layer parameters, and the computer network security evaluation level values taken as output layer parameter. All data were divided into learning sample sets and forecasting sample sets. The results showed that the designed BP neural network exhibited a fast convergence speed and the system error was 0.000999654. Furthermore, the predictive values of the network were in good agreement with the experimental results, and the correlation coefficient was 0.98723. These results indicated that the network had an excellent training accuracy and generalization ability, which effectively reflected the performance of the system for the computer network security evaluation.

The recent success of brain-inspired deep neural networks (DNNs) in solving complex, high-level visual tasks has led to rising expectations for their potential to match the human visual system. However, DNNs exhibit idiosyncrasies that suggest their visual representation and processing might be substantially different from human vision. One limitation of DNNs is that they are vulnerable to adversarial examples, input images on which subtle, carefully designed noises are added to fool a machine classifier. The robustness of the human visual system against adversarial examples is potentially of great importance as it could uncover a key mechanistic feature that machine vision is yet to incorporate. In this study, we compare the visual representations of white- and black-box adversarial examples in DNNs and humans by leveraging functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). We find a small but significant difference in representation patterns for different (i.e. white- versus black-box) types of adversarial examples for both humans and DNNs. However, human performance on categorical judgment is not degraded by noise regardless of the type unlike DNN. These results suggest that adversarial examples may be differentially represented in the human visual system, but unable to affect the perceptual experience.

Current testing for Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) focuses on quantity of test cases but ignores diversity. To the best of our knowledge, DeepXplore is the first white-box framework for Deep Learning testing by triggering differential behaviors between multiple DNNs and increasing neuron coverage to improve diversity. Since it is based on multiple DNNs facing problems that (1) the framework is not friendly to a single DNN, (2) if incorrect predictions made by all DNNs simultaneously, DeepXplore cannot generate test cases. This paper presents Test4Deep, a white-box testing framework based on a single DNN. Test4Deep avoids mistakes of multiple DNNs by inducing inconsistencies between predicted labels of original inputs and that of generated test inputs. Meanwhile, Test4Deep improves neuron coverage to capture more diversity by attempting to activate more inactivated neurons. The proposed method was evaluated on three popular datasets with nine DNNs. Compared to DeepXplore, Test4Deep produced average 4.59% (maximum 10.49%) more test cases that all found errors and faults of DNNs. These test cases got 19.57% more diversity increment and 25.88% increment of neuron coverage. Test4Deep can further be used to improve the accuracy of DNNs by average up to 5.72% (maximum 7.0%).

Khalil, Kasem, Eldash, Omar, Kumar, Ashok, Bayoumi, Magdy.  2019.  Self-Healing Approach for Hardware Neural Network Architecture. 2019 IEEE 62nd International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS). :622–625.
Neural Network is used in many applications and guarding its performance against faults is a research challenge. Self-healing neural network is a promising concept for achieving reliability, which is the ability to detect and fix a fault in the system automatically. Most of the current self-healing neural network are based on replication of hardware nodes which causes significant area overhead. The proposed self-healing approach results in a modest area overhead and it is suitable for complex neural network. The proposed method is based on a shared operation and a spare node in each layer which compensates for any faulty node in the layer. Each faulty node will be compensated by its neighbor node, and the neighbor node performs the faulty node as well as its own operations sequentially. In the case the neighbor is faulty, the spare node will compensate for it. The proposed method is implemented using VHDL and the simulation results are obtained using Altira 10 GX FPGA for a different number of nodes. The area overhead is very small for a complex network. The reliability of the proposed method is studied and compared with the traditional neural network.

As the next generation of the power system, smart grid develops towards automated and intellectualized. Along with the benefits brought by smart grids, e.g., improved energy conversion rate, power utilization rate, and power supply quality, are the security challenges. One of the most important issues in smart grids is to ensure reliable communication between the secondary equipment. The state-of-art method to ensure smart grid security is to detect cyber attacks by deep learning. However, due to the small number of negative samples, the performance of the detection system is limited. In this paper, we propose a novel approach that utilizes the Generative Adversarial Network (GAN) to generate abundant negative samples, which helps to improve the performance of the state-of-art detection system. The evaluation results demonstrate that the proposed method can effectively improve the performance of the detection system by 4%.
