Sidel'nikov O.V. - Comparison of computational complexity of classification algorithms for recognizing the signs of cyber attacks pp. 7-16


Abstract: The article presents a comparison of computational complexity of two logical classification algorithms: an algorithm of sequential search (brute force) and algorithm of inductive states prediction. Logic algorithms are implemented in Matlab. For comparison of the computational complexity of classification algorithms author uses Zakrevskiy technique. Classification problem is one of the main problems in detection of threats of cyber attacks in the information system. Information about the signs of cyber attacks detection can be received from various sources (sensors) of software and hardware of the information system, for example, antivirus tools, dumps RAM logs, hard drives, user logon information, etc. Each of those sources contain information that can be used to determine the presence of an attack on the system. The article reviews the problem of logical classification of already existing data using two algorithms: an algorithm of sequential search (brute force) and algorithm of inductive states prediction. The use of the adapted method of inductive states prediction allowed to reduce amount of computation and get the average gain K ≈ 9,3 and thereby reduce time of detection of computer attacks.
Piskova A.V., Korobeinikov A.G. - Features of applying lattice theory in digital signature schemes pp. 8-12


Abstract: The subject of the study is the scheme of digital signature, which is an important element in building secure systems used in most real-world security protocols. Reliability of existing schemes of electronic digital signature can be severely lowered in case of developments in classical cryptanalyst or progress in the development of quantum computers. A potential alternative approach is to construct the schemes based on the complexity of certain properties of the lattices, which are supposed to be intractable for quantum computers. Due to significant scientific advances in recent years, scheme based on lattice theory already used in practice and is a very viable alternative to number-theoretic cryptography. The study is based on the use of methods of lattice theory. This choice is dictated by the lack of solution of problem of finding the shortest vector or finding the nearest vector in polynomial time. The main conclusion of the paper is that the main area of future development in the schemes of the digital signature on the basis of lattice theory is their optimization and implementation of the Fiat-Shamir model in it. For example, Bliss scheme showed high performance and therefore it can be integrated into portable systems and devices.

Abstract: The article presents an analytical review of ways to implement encoders input residues in the residue number system and justified their selection of optimal structures. Authors evaluates instrumental and time costs considered circuit solutions. The purpose of the study is to consider all possible options encoding input signals in residual classes with the modern element base and full advantage of the system of residual classes, evaluation of hardware and time complexity of these options and the selection and justification of the best solution in terms of the criteria indicated above. Hardware cost of encoders are expressed as logical number of two-input logical elements, and to an EPROM contained in the form of its information bits in capacity. Instrumental cost of encoders on logic circuits depends on how many parts the input sequence is divided. It is concluded that it is possible to further simplify logical encoders and, as a consequence, reduce hardware expenses.

Korobeinikov A.G., Kutuzov I.M., Kolesnikov P.Y. - Analysis methods of obfuscation pp. 31-37
Abstract: Modern computer technology makes it a variety of tasks relevant to the field of information security. For example, for the protection of copyright in the images methods of steganography are used. To solve the problem of proving authorship (or vice versa) code obfuscation techniques are used. Obfuscation (from Lat. Obfuscare - obscure, obfuscate, and English. Obfuscate - make non-obvious, confusing, confusing) or obfuscated code - is the process of bringing the source code or executable program code to the form, that keeps its functionality, but complicates the analysis, understanding algorithms and modification during decompilation. Currently, there are special programs called obfuscators that performes obfuscation to solve the task in different ways. The article discusses the techniques of obfuscation from the most basic to sophisticated polymorphic generators obfuscators performing the mathematical transformation of the code, as well as the relationship of obfuscation and efficiency of program code execution and reduce the size of the program. The authors describe further development of obfuscation techniques.

Bashmakov D.A., Prokhozhev N.N., Mikhailichenko O.V., Sivachev A.V. - Application of neighborhood matrices of pixels to improve the accuracy of steganoanalysis of fixed digital images with a homogeneous background pp. 64-72


Abstract: The article consideres the accuracy of the steganoanalysis using the Weighted Stego algorithm in passive data transmission channel countermeasures using the method of embedding the spatial region of fixed digital images with the RGB color model into the smallest significant bit. The dependence of the accuracy of steganoanalysis by the Weighted Stego method on the fraction of a homogeneous background in the analyzed image was studied. The drop in the accuracy of pixel prediction in the background areas of the image is investigated using the prediction model proposed by the authors of the original Weighted Stego algorithm. The Weighted Stego steganoanalysis algorithm is investigated. The basis for the steganoanalysis algorithm is a model for predicting the pixel values of the analyzed image from adjacent pixels. To assess the effectiveness of the analysis, the BOWS2 collection was used. Embedding information is realized by changing the least significant bits of the image in the spatial domain with a payload of 3-5 %%. The effectiveness of the methods is determined taking into account the obtained truly positive, truly negative, false positive and false negative values of the classification of images. The fall in the accuracy of steganoanalysis by the Weighted Stego method is shown with an increase in the fraction of a homogeneous background in the analyzed image. The method of improvement of the pixel prediction model in the basis of Weighted Stego is proposed, which allows to level out the drop in accuracy with increasing the fraction of a homogeneous background in the analyzed image. The results of the work are useful to a specialist in the field of information protection in the tasks of detecting and countering a hidden data channel. The obtained results can be used in the development of steganoanalysis systems based on the Weighted Stego algorithm.

Fayskhanov I.F. - Authentication of users with a stable keyboard handwriting in free text selection pp. 72-86


Abstract: The subject of the research in this work is a dynamic process of user authentication using keyboard handwriting with free text selection.This process is a regular check of the user on a "friend-to-another" principle: the user entering the text is under continuous monitoring of the system and, in case of non-coincidence of the identification characteristics, the system refuses to continue working.The free sample is understood as follows: the user performs text input based on his current tasks, the system in turn analyzes this work, extracts signs, learns, and in case of inconsistency of characteristics, stops access. The research method used in this work is theoretical, consisting of research, search and calculations. An empirical method is also used, which consists of experiment, comparison, and study. The novelty of this paper is as follows. To date, the most popular authentication method is the password.However, the password gradually displaces the biometric means of authentication. For example, to date, many smartphones are equipped with a fingerprint scanning feature.Nevertheless, despite the effectiveness of this method, the method of keyboard authentication has its advantages: the fingerprint scanning system has the risk of not recognizing the finger, if it is injured, hacking methods of this method already exist and, most importantly, the proposed keyboard handwriting system controls by entering continuously, which will allow first, to prevent an attacker from entering the authentication phase, and also to detect it if, for example, he could, by fraudulent means, gain access to the system.
Baltaev R.K., Lunegov I.V. - Steganographic method of embedding information using a noise-like sequence and preserving the statistical model of images pp. 76-83


Abstract: The subject of research is the steganographic method of embedding information in digital images. Steganography is capable of hiding not only the content of information, but also the very fact of its existence. The paper considers one of the most important problems in the development of steganographic methods - the secrecy of the transfer of protected information. Stealth is not only visual or auditory indistinguishability of a digital media resource from a media resource with embedded information, but also statistical indistinguishability. Special attention is paid to preserving the spatial statistical dependence between the image pixels. The methodological basis of the research is the methods of mathematical statistics and image processing theory, as well as image distortion metrics. The novelty of the research lies in the development of a new method of embedding information in static images. The authors consider in detail the problem of applying the moving average autoregression process to represent the statistical dependence of image pixels. It is shown that the proposed method allows you to embed information into digital images without significant distortion.
Prokhozhev N.N., Sivachev A.V., Mikhailichenko O.V., Bashmakov D.A. - Improving the precision of steganalysis in the DWT sphere by using the interrelation between the spheres of one-dimensional and two-dimensional developments. pp. 78-87


Abstract: The article contains the studies, which are aimed at improving the precision of steganalysis in the sphere of digital image DWT. The authors analyze the causes of inaccuracy of the modern stegoanalysis methods based upon the support vectors, then they offer the directions for improving the teaching quality. In order to improve the quality of teaching support vectors machine the authors study the interrelation between the spheres of one-dimensional and two-dimensional DWT and the influence of the changes in the coefficients of the high frequency spheres of the two-dimensional DWT upon the coefficient spheres of the one-dimensional DWT.  The steganographic influence involves the change in the value of the lower meaning bit coefficients of the DWT. Considering the study results the authors develop an original method, guaranteeing greater precision in the sphere of finding incorporated information in the high frequency areas of the two-dimensional DWT image.  In order to prove the precision of the original method, the authors compare it with some modern steganalysis methods. Experimental results of a comparative study prove that the original method provides for greater precision (generally 10-15% higher than other evaluated methods) when detecting the fact of steganographic influence in high frequency areas of HL and LH of the two-dimensional DWT. The original method also provides for the same precision in the high frequency HH area, as do other modern methods evaluated in this article.

Bashmakov D.A. - Adaptive Prediction of Pixels in Gradient Areas to Raise Steganalysis Accuracy of Static Digital Images pp. 83-93


Abstract: In his research Bashmakov analyzes accuracy of background area selection in static digital images by using the histogram method as part of steganalysis performed by Weighted Stego Image and WSPAM methods. He examines the dependence of practical accuracy of steganalysis of static digital images by using Weighted Stego Image and  WSPAM methods on the kind of prediction model in gradient regions of an image as part of resistance to data transmission channels that use the method of embedding the least significant bit of spatial domain in static digital images with a significant part of homogeneous background. The author analyzes the Weighted Stego steganalysis algorithm and WSPAM modification thereof. To evaluate the analysis efficiency, the author has used the BOWS2 collection. To evaluate efficiency of homogenous background selection, the author has used images selected from a wide range of sources. The information is built in by changing the least significant bits of images in spatial domain with an actual load from 3-5%. Efficiency of methods is defined based on true-positive, true-negative, false-positive and false-negative values of image classification. The author demonstrates the low accuracy of homogenous background selection using the histogram method. The author suggests to select homogenous background using the segmentation neural net and proves its efficiency. He also offers an improved model of pixel prediction in image gradient areas, this model allowing to achieve the highest accuracy of steganalysis. The results of the research can be used to create systems of passive resistance to steganographic data transmission channels that are based on the Weighted Stego algorithm.
