Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the continuous expansion of machine learning algorithms in security and decision-making systems, attempts to attack these algorithms are also expanding. Adversarial attacks have recently been seen in social network platforms, network traffic, email spam detections, financial services and many other areas. In this context, we are inviting papers related to adversarial attacks and adversarial machine learning in all fields and applications, such as, but not limited to,

  1. Adversarial machine learning in text and national language processing;
  2. Adversarial machine learning in images and image processing;
  3. Adversarial attacks;
  4. Adversarial defense mechanisms;
  5. Misinformation in social networks and adversarial machine learning;
  6. Adversarial machine learning models;
  7. Social bots and trolls.

Concerns about cybersecurity and attack methods have risen in the information age. Many techniques are used to detect or deter attacks, such as intrusion detection systems (IDSs), that help achieve security goals, such as detecting malicious attacks before they enter the system and classifying them as malicious activities. However, the IDS approaches have shortcomings in misclassifying novel attacks or adapting to emerging environments, affecting their accuracy and increasing false alarms. To solve this problem, researchers have recommended using machine learning approaches as engines for IDSs to increase their efficacy. Machine-learning techniques are supposed to automatically detect the main distinctions between normal and malicious data, even novel attacks, with high accuracy. However, carefully designed adversarial input perturbations during the training or testing phases can significantly affect their predictions and classifications. Adversarial machine learning (AML) poses many cybersecurity threats in numerous sectors that use machine-learning-based classification systems, such as deceiving IDS to misclassify network packets. Thus, this paper presents a survey of adversarial machine-learning strategies and defenses. It starts by highlighting various types of adversarial attacks that can affect the IDS and then presents the defense strategies to decrease or eliminate the influence of these attacks. Finally, the gaps in the existing literature and future research directions are presented. Full article
