The adversarial nature of security makes applying machine learning complicated. If attackers can evade signatures and heuristics, what is stopping them from evading ML models? Yacin Nadji evaluates, breaks, and fixes a deployed network-based ML detector that uses graph clustering. While the attacks are specific to graph clustering, the lessons learned apply to all ML systems in security. Read more.
