Hands-On Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity

This is the code repository for Hands-On Artificial Intelligence for Cybersecurity, published by Packt.

Implement smart AI systems for preventing cyber attacks and detecting threats and network anomalies

What is this book about?

If you wish to design smart, threat-proof cybersecurity systems using trending AI tools and techniques, then this book is for you. With this book, you will learn to develop intelligent systems that can detect suspicious patterns and attacks, thereby allowing you to protect your network and corporate assets.

This book covers the following exciting features:

  • Detect email threats such as spamming and phishing using AI
  • Categorize APT, zero-days, and polymorphic malware samples
  • Overcome antivirus limits in threat detection
  • Predict network intrusions and detect anomalies with machine learning
  • Verify the strength of biometric authentication procedures with deep learning

Instructions and Navigations

All of the code is organized into folders. For example,

The code will look like the following:

In [ ]:
from sklearn.decomposition import PCA   

pca = PCA(n_components=2)                               
X_2D = pca.transform(X_data)            
data_df['PCA1'] = X_2D[:, 0]
data_df['PCA2'] = X_2D[:, 1]

Following is what you need for this book: If you’re a cybersecurity professional or ethical hacker who wants to build intelligent systems using the power of machine learning and AI, you’ll find this book useful.
