Visual Analytics on Guard of Information Security
Authors: Igor Kotenko and Yevgeniya Novikova
Methods of visual analytics significantly simplify a security administrator’s work, since these methods involve intelligent data processing algorithms and allow for peculiarities of human visual data perception.
The talk will cover the existing methods of data visual analysis designed for solving various tasks in order to provide protection against computer attacks. The efficacy of applying visual analysis is exemplified by the tools developed by the research authors, specifically the utilities for traffic analysis, attack modelling, security assessment, and detecting financial infringements in mobile payment systems.
Igor Kotenko is a Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences, and Head of the SPIIRAS Laboratory of Information Security Issues.
He participated in various projects on developing new computer security technologies and managed projects of the European FP7 and FP6 framework programs and also projects commissioned by HP, Intel, F-Secure, etc. These projects resulted in the development of innovative methods for detecting network intrusions, modeling network attacks, network security assessment, security protocols development, security policies verification, etc.
Yevgeniya Novikova is a Candidate of Sciences and Senior Staff Scientist of the SPIIRAS Laboratory of Information Security Issues. She focuses her research on developing new models and methods of data visual analysis for intelligent information security management of computer systems. She takes special interest in public-key cryptography.
