Machine Learning and Security

Protecting Systems with Data and Algorithms

Clarence Chio,

Machine Learning and Security: Protecting Systems with Data and Algorithms
 

About the eBook

Can machine learning techniques solve our computer security problems and finally put an end to the cat-and-mouse game between attackers and defenders? Or is this hope merely hype? Now you can dive into the science and answer this question for yourself! With this practical guide, you’ll explore ways to apply machine learning to security issues such as intrusion detection, malware classification, and network analysis.

Machine learning and security specialists Clarence Chio and David Freeman provide a framework for discussing the marriage of these two fields, as well as a toolkit of machine-learning algorithms that you can apply to an array of security problems. This book is ideal for security engineers and data scientists alike.

  • Learn how machine learning has contributed to the success of modern spam filters
