    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.3, pp. 3897-3912, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048528

    Abstract The emergence of digital networks and the wide adoption of information on internet platforms have given rise to threats against users’ private information. Many intruders actively seek such private data either for sale or other inappropriate purposes. Similarly, national and international organizations have country-level and company-level private information that could be accessed by different network attacks. Therefore, the need for a Network Intruder Detection System (NIDS) becomes essential for protecting these networks and organizations. In the evolution of NIDS, Artificial Intelligence (AI) assisted tools and methods have been widely adopted to provide effective solutions. However,… More >

    Abstract Secure authentication and accurate localization among Internet of Things (IoT) sensors are pivotal for the functionality and integrity of IoT networks. IoT authentication and localization are intricate and symbiotic, impacting both the security and operational functionality of IoT systems. Hence, accurate localization and lightweight authentication on resource-constrained IoT devices pose several challenges. To overcome these challenges, recent approaches have used encryption techniques with well-known key infrastructures. However, these methods are inefficient due to the increasing number of data breaches in their localization approaches. This proposed research efficiently integrates authentication and localization processes in such a… More >

    Applying an Improved Dung Beetle Optimizer Algorithm to Network Traffic Identification

    Qinyue Wu, Hui Xu*, Mengran Liu

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 4091-4107, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048461

    Abstract Network traffic identification is critical for maintaining network security and further meeting various demands of network applications. However, network traffic data typically possesses high dimensionality and complexity, leading to practical problems in traffic identification data analytics. Since the original Dung Beetle Optimizer (DBO) algorithm, Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO) algorithm, Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA), and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm have the shortcomings of slow convergence and easily fall into the local optimal solution, an Improved Dung Beetle Optimizer (IDBO) algorithm is proposed for network traffic identification. Firstly, the Sobol sequence is utilized to initialize the… More >

    A Security Trade-Off Scheme of Anomaly Detection System in IoT to Defend against Data-Tampering Attacks

    Bing Liu1, Zhe Zhang1, Shengrong Hu2, Song Sun3,*, Dapeng Liu4, Zhenyu Qiu5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.3, pp. 4049-4069, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048099

    Abstract Internet of Things (IoT) is vulnerable to data-tampering (DT) attacks. Due to resource limitations, many anomaly detection systems (ADSs) for IoT have high false positive rates when detecting DT attacks. This leads to the misreporting of normal data, which will impact the normal operation of IoT. To mitigate the impact caused by the high false positive rate of ADS, this paper proposes an ADS management scheme for clustered IoT. First, we model the data transmission and anomaly detection in clustered IoT. Then, the operation strategy of the clustered IoT is formulated as the running probabilities… More >

    Strengthening Network Security: Deep Learning Models for Intrusion Detection with Optimized Feature Subset and Effective Imbalance Handling

    Bayi Xu1, Lei Sun2,*, Xiuqing Mao2, Chengwei Liu3, Zhiyi Ding2

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.2, pp. 1995-2022, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.046478

    Abstract In recent years, frequent network attacks have highlighted the importance of efficient detection methods for ensuring cyberspace security. This paper presents a novel intrusion detection system consisting of a data preprocessing stage and a deep learning model for accurately identifying network attacks. We have proposed four deep neural network models, which are constructed using architectures such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), Bi-directional Long Short-Term Memory (BiLSTM), Bidirectional Gate Recurrent Unit (BiGRU), and Attention mechanism. These models have been evaluated for their detection performance on the NSL-KDD dataset.To enhance the compatibility between the data and the More >

    Application Research on Two-Layer Threat Prediction Model Based on Event Graph

    Shuqin Zhang, Xinyu Su*, Yunfei Han, Tianhui Du, Peiyu Shi

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.77, No.3, pp. 3993-4023, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.044526

    Abstract Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) is now the most common network assault. However, the existing threat analysis models cannot simultaneously predict the macro-development trend and micro-propagation path of APT attacks. They cannot provide rapid and accurate early warning and decision responses to the present system state because they are inadequate at deducing the risk evolution rules of network threats. To address the above problems, firstly, this paper constructs the multi-source threat element analysis ontology (MTEAO) by integrating multi-source network security knowledge bases. Subsequently, based on MTEAO, we propose a two-layer threat prediction model (TL-TPM) that combines… More >
