As a consequence of the growing popularity of smart mobile devices, mobile malware is clearly on the rise, with attackers targeting valuable user information and exploiting vulnerabilities of the mobile ecosystems. With the emergence of large-scale mobile botnets, smartphones can also be used to launch attacks on mobile networks. The NEMESYS project will(More)
—The growing popularity of smart mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has made them an attractive target for cyber-criminals, resulting in a rapidly growing and evolving mobile threat as attackers experiment with new business models by targeting mobile users.

As usage of the Internet increases, its scarcity of built-in security becomes more and more problematic. This paper describes serious attacks against IP control and management protocols with an accent on the ICMP protocol, as well as some of the(More)
The present paper proposes an authentication scheme which relies on face biometrics and one-class Support Vector Machines. The proposed recognition procedures are based on both a global approach and on a combination of a global and a component-based approaches. Two different features extraction methods and three light compensation algorithms are tested. The(More)
