The deadly link between zero-day exploit and DDOS botnet attacks

The deadly link between zero-day exploit and DDOS botnet attacks

The growing demand for connectivity and faster data transfer, along with new technology trends such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Artificial Intelligence (AI), combined withthe progressive implementation of the 5G network, are going to irreversibly reshape the pre-existing structure of cybersecurity at a global level. It is true that 5G network will bring new services, new capabilities, new technologies and new regulatory requirements, but it will also bring new security threats and an increased attack surface. With IoT inception many and different actors and devices with different security standards will become involved in the transition, requiring superior attack resilience and a faster response time to counter the […]

Our Embedded Engineer Andrea Molino was one of the speakers at the National Cryptography Association  ”De componentis cifris ”

On 14 October 2019, a member of our team, Eng. Andrea Molino, gave a speech at the event ”La De Cifris incontra Torino” , organized by De Componendis Cifris and held at Politecnico in Turin. The event was focused on successful advancements in cryptography research and applications. The initiative involved several experts from academic institutions and business operating in the cryptography sector. The main goal was fostering cooperation between those who work in the Italian crypto domain. The contribution given by Andrea dealt with implementation aspects of cryptography. He underlined: “security architecture and schemes cannot ignore hardware systems in which they are going to be implemented”. Andrea’s attendance to the […]

Hacking the Artificial Intelligence

Hacking the Artificial Intelligence

The enemies of the future will not necessarily need bombs, missiles or atomic weapons to instil terror in civilian populations. They will need only some tape, scissors and good practical skills and they can magically transform a stop sign into a green light in the eyes of a self-driving car, causing crashes and disorder. Using an Artificial Intelligence attack (AI attack) adversaries can manipulate AI systems in order to alter their behaviour to serve a malicious end goal. The real effect of these attacks grows as artificial intelligence and IoT systems are further integrated into critical components of society (e.g. smart grid, transportation, healthcare, military etc.). In fact, the AI […]

Cybersecurity & Cyberattacks, a Hand In Hand Development Through The Years

Cybersecurity & Cyberattacks, a Hand In Hand Development Through The Years

The birth of the internet and the digital era brought to the light the theme of “cybersecurity”, that over the past years gained more and more importance. Security, indeed, has always been a challenge for IT people and corporate organizations alike since the launching of the first internet network, ARPAnet. During the seventies, the first viruses appeared in this web, that was developed for military purposes and that later on  became a universal  tool. Robert Thomas was the engineer who developed the first malware called “creeper”. He realized that it was possible to move across networks through a computer program and leave a mark. Taking inspiration from Thomas’ malware, Ray […]
