This paper proposes a new method for treating the inverse problem for Iterated Functions Systems (IFS) using Genetic Programming. This method is based on two original aspects. On the fractal side, a new representation of the IFS functions, termed Polar Iterated Functions Systems, is designed, shrinking the search space to mostly contractive functions.(More)
An unususal GP implementation is proposed, based on a more economic" exploitation of the GP algorithm: the individual" approach , where each individual of the population embodies a single function rather than a set of functions. The nal solution is then a set of individuals. Examples are presented where results are obtained more rapidly than with the(More)
This article deals with operational attacks leaded against cryptographic tools. Problem is approached from several point of view, the goal being always to retrieve a maximum amount of information without resorting to intensive cryptanalysis. Therefore, focus will be set on errors, deliberate or not, from the implementation or the use of such tools, to(More)
This article deals with rootkit conception. We show how these particular malicious codes are innovative comparing to usual malware like virus, Trojan horses, etc. From that comparison, we introduce a functional architecture for rootkits. We also propose some criteria to characterize a rootkit and thus, to qualify and assess the different kinds of rootkits.(More)
People have now come to understand the risks associated with MS Office documents: whether those risks are caused by macros or associated breaches. PDF documents on the contrary seem to be much more secure and reliable. This false sense of security mainly comes from the fact that these documents appear to be static. The widespread use of Acrobat Reader is(More)
