This paper is devoted to the problem of neural networks as means of intrusion detection. We show that properly trained neural networks are capable of fast recognition and classification of different attacks. The advantage of the taken approach allows us to demonstrate the superiority of the neural networks over the systems that were created by the winner of(More)
This paper introduces Avatar CAPTCHA, an image based approach to distinguish human users from computer programs (bots). The proposed CAPTCHA asks users to identify avatar faces from a set of 12 grayscale images comprised of a mix of human and avatar faces. Experimental results indicate that it can be solved 62% of the time by human users with an average(More)
Behavioural intrusion detection is a frequently used for insuring network security. We expend behaviour based intrusion detection approach to a new domain of game networks. Specifically, our research shows that a behavioural biometric signature can be generated based on the strategy used by an individual to play a game. We wrote software capable of(More)
Machine ethics and robot rights are quickly becoming hot topics in artificial intelligence/robotics communities. We will argue that the attempts to allow machines to make ethical decisions or to have rights are misguided. Instead we propose a new science of safety engineering for intelligent artificial agents. In particular we issue a challenge to the(More)
Criminal activity in virtual worlds is becoming a major problem for law enforcement agencies. Forensic investigators are becoming interested in being able to accurately and automatically track people in virtual communities. In this paper a set of algorithms capable of verification and recognition of avatar faces with high degree of accuracy are described.(More)
In this paper we survey the state of the art in direct and indirect human computer interaction based biometrics. Direct HCI biometrics are based on abilities, style, preference, knowledge, or strategy used by people while working with a computer. The indirect HCI-based biometrics are events that can be obtained by monitoring users’ HCI behavior indirectly(More)
