Nocturne Cyber – Safeguarding the Digital Frontier: Exploring the Convergence of AI for Security and Security for AI

Abstract:

In an era where our reliance on technology is constantly expanding, the intricate relationship between AI and security has never been more paramount. This presentation delves into the intersection of AI and security, spotlighting three recent research projects that illustrate the synergy between these fields. First, we explore the world of firmware security by delving into the development of a Firmware Bill of Materials and Vulnerability Detection system, shedding light on the critical importance of securing the very foundation of modern devices. Next, we pivot to the realm of avionic platforms, focusing on Intrusion Detection tailored for the MIL1553 protocol, a critical component of aerospace systems. Lastly, we delve into the realm of cyber threats, showcasing the potential of Multi-Agent Learning in the context of Evasive Malware Generation and Detection, offering insights into the evolving landscape of digital threats and countermeasures. Join us as we embark on a journey through the dynamic landscape of AI-driven security, revealing recent advancements and practical applications to safeguard our digital future.
