Connected devices will continue to grow in volume and variety. The increase of connectivity brings a drastic impact on the increase of cyber attacks. Protecting measurements are not enough, while finding who did the attack is a crucial for preventing the escalation of cyber attacks. The impact of forensics in cyber security is becoming essential for the reduction and mitigation of attacks. Forensics and attribution forensics come along with their own challenges, like the difficulties on collecting suitable evidence, and the vastness of anti-forensics tools used by the attackers to cover their traces.

Argumentation-based Security for Social Good

The paper “Argumentation-based Security for Social Good” presented at the AAAI Spring Symposia 2017 is now available at the AAAI Technical Report. Title: Argumentation-Based Security for Social Good Authors: Erisa Karafili, Antonis C. Kakas, Nikolaos I. Spanoudakis, Emil C.
