Special Issue on Advances in Robust Intrusion Detection through Machine Learning
Submission Date: 2024-12-20

Intrusion detection systems are a key component in the fight against cyber attacks. Robustness by design – the ability to identify intrusions even when evasion techniques are employed – should be a core characteristic of any intrusion detection technique. Guest editors: Mauro Conti Full Professor University of Padua, Padua, Italy Fabio De Gaspari Assistant Professor Sapienza University of Rome, Rome, Italy Jianying Zhou Full Professor Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore Special issue information: Intrusion detection systems are a key component in the fight against cyber attacks. Robustness by design – the ability to identify intrusions even when evasion techniques are employed – should be a core characteristic of any intrusion detection technique. Intrusion detection approaches, however, are often proposed and validated only against existing attacks, without considering how evolving adversaries might adapt to evade the proposed defenses. The growing adoption of machine learning and deep learning models for cyber attack detection has further exacerbated this issue. These models are often used as black-box oracles for intrusion detection, with no in-depth analysis on how detection decisions are made, or considerations for their vulnerability evasion. The ability of cybersecurity solutions to withstand evasion and data manipulation plays a crucial role in the security of computer systems, and novel research efforts in intrusion detection should focus on robust-by-design approaches. This special issue provides an opportunity to present advances in all areas of machine learning-based intrusion detection, such as behavioral detection, static detection, and provenance-based detection, as well as novel evasion techniques and countermeasures, with a strong emphasis on empirical and theoretical analysis of resilience to evasion and manipulation attacks. Manuscript submission information: Manuscript Submission Deadline *: 20/12/2024 Manuscripts should be submitted using the online submission system of the journal at Authors should select article type 'VSI: Robust ML IDS' during the submission.
