    Amardeep Singh1, Hamad Ali Abosaq2, Saad Arif3, Zohaib Mushtaq4,*, Muhammad Irfan5, Ghulam Abbas6, Arshad Ali7, Alanoud Al Mazroa8

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 857-873, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048036

    Abstract Data security assurance is crucial due to the increasing prevalence of cloud computing and its widespread use across different industries, especially in light of the growing number of cybersecurity threats. A major and ever-present threat is Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) assaults, which enable even individuals with minimal technical knowledge to conduct ransomware operations. This study provides a new approach for RaaS attack detection which uses an ensemble of deep learning models. For this purpose, the network intrusion detection dataset “UNSW-NB15” from the Intelligent Security Group of the University of New South Wales, Australia is analyzed. In the initial phase, the rectified linear… More >
