Mustafaev A.G. - Neural network system of cyber-attacks detection on the basis of traffic analysis pp. 1-7


Abstract: The author considers the methods of network attacks on a computer system detecting and reveals their advantages and drawbacks. The development of new methods and means of protection of computing systems from network attacks is urgent. The author considers the possibility of using artificial neural networks for traffic analysis. The author offers the neural network model of the incoming traffic filtration. The research is aimed at the creation of an adaptive neural network system serving as a cyber-attacks detection complex helping to take the peculiarities of the network traffic into consideration. To design the artificial neural network the author applies the Neural Network Toolbox pack from MATLAB 8.6 (R2015b). The author develops and offers the method of analysis of incoming traffic on the base of a three-layered neural network. The results of its teaching and testing demonstrate the possibility of its successful application for network cyber-attacks detection. The best results can be acquired in computing systems using the limited software suite allowing forming the traits of normal behavior for attacks detection more effectively. 
Kobets P.N. - Topical issues of complex security provision and terrorism prevention on air transport: problems and solutions pp. 1-16


Abstract: The urgency of the topic is undoubtful due to the fast growth of terrorist activity in Russia and abroad in the recent years tending to become a global threat. The research subject is the bulk of scientific publications, normative acts and judicial practice reflecting the characteristics of terrorist crime on air transport and the measures of its prevention. The author attempts at characterizing the set of theoretical and practical problems connected with anti-terrorist measures implementation and improvement on air transport. The author uses the set of general scientific research methods including comparison, analysis, synthesis, along with the formal-logical, comparative-legal and other specific methods including historical and statistical. The main part of the research is devoted to the criminological characteristic of security provision in airports and the use of technical equipment. The author characterizes the public danger of terrorist crimes, reveals the legal framework of this phenomenon, studies the existing aviation security systems, and defines the range of problems of their use. The author concludes that aviation security doesn’t exist independently, it is fulfilled by means of particular measures. While most scholars pay special attention to the problem of passengers control, the author believes that any airport staff member has an opportunity to commit terrorist attack. The author concludes that at the present time, though with significant difficulties, the scientific ideas about terrorism prevention on air transport are being realized in law enforcement practice by means of control strengthening and the development of organizational anti-terrorist measures. The author analyzes airport security systems, detects their weak points and offers the ways to solve the problems using technical means. Practical importance of the study consists in the fact that the proposed recommendations can be used in information and analytical materials, in system organization and management work aimed at combating terrorism on air transport. 
Shakhmanov F.F., Fomin A.V. - Experimental Approbation of a Mathematical Model Used to Assess the Collective Fire Hazard Risk of Automobile Gas Stations pp. 1-9


Abstract: The subject of the research is the assessment of the fire hazard risk of automobile gas stations for the purpose of establishing a risk-oriented approach to performing the federal state fire supervision. The risk-oriented approach implies the method of supervision that defines the frequency of audits based on referring a facility to a certain risk category. The results of analysing the risk-oriented approach to performing federal state fire supervision of automobile gas stations demonstrate that criteria that are used to assess the collective fire hazard risk do not include the probability and severity of harm that can be caused to people during fire. The authors offer their own mathematical model for assessing the collective fire hazard risk that takes into account the probability and severity of potential negative consequences of fire at an automobile gas station. Results of the experimental approbation of the aforesaid mathematical model have demonstrated that the model answers the requirements of the applicable legislation of the Russian Federation about the need to take into account the probability and severity of potential negative consequences of fire for people and allows to clarify the frequency of audits. The model can apply to other immovable hazard locations of a similar class of functional fire hazard. 
Belov P. - Theoretical and Methodological Aspects of National Security Management pp. 10-27


Abstract: The subject of this research is to develop an adequate framework of categories and concepts and modern methods of system research as well as to improve the management of the national security process in general and information-psychological and industrial-environmental spheres of national security in particular. The rationale of thsi research is caused both by the imperfection of the current paradigm of national security (mostly of humanitarian descriptive nature) and the growing issue of preservation of nations and strategic stability as a result of the intensified struggle for deficit natural resources. The methodology of national security management is an interdisciplinary instrument that is based on the energy-enthropic concept and classification of real dangers, and includes such contemporary research methods as systems analysis on the basis of categoric thinking and modelling and systems synthesis of measures necessary to improve the management-by-objective of the national security. The novelty of the research is caused by the following: the author gives a definition of  national, information-psychological and industrial-environmental security, describes the subject matter and contents of relevant professional activities and chosen inderdisciplinary instrument to manage and improve the aforesaid spheres of security, and demonstrates reliability of these definitions. These definitions may be used in the university and post-graduate educational processes as well as professional activity of experts. 
Novosel'skiy A.V. - The reflection of legal assessment of hybrid war against Syria in scientific publications pp. 10-18


Abstract: The goal of this article is to expand the awareness of military-political figures on the special meaning of legal assessment of hybrid war against Syria, as well as inform them on the existing results of scientific research on the topic. The relevance is substantiated by insufficient familiarization of public with the mechanism of undue influence on the Syrian Arab Republic by the world backstage of the West. The author presents the new texts pertaining to the subject in question reduced to the three groups. The first group combines the publications of scholars, who described the phenomenon of “hybrid war” in Syrian conflict. The second group includes the works of scholars, who examined the aspects of international humanitarian law in the conditions of hybrid warfare against Syria. The third group is limited by findings of the experts, who explained the motives of negative attitude of world backstage of the West towards the fate of legitimate regime / Syrian citizens. The scientific novelty consists in substantiation of the need for introducing the concept of “hybrid war” into legal field and recognizing it as equal crime against humanity as a regular war. The main results of this work lies in the proof that formalization of the concept of “hybrid war” and its introduction into the legal field of international community would contribute to ensuring security of Russia, as well as enhancing its international authority.
Shumov V. - The analysis of integration processes in post-Soviet space pp. 15-35


Abstract: The object of this research is the social, political and economic integration processes in post-Soviet space. The subject of this research is the model of assessment, construction of scenarios and forecast of integration processes. For the analysis, forecasting and assessment of risks of integration processes, the author employs two approaches: 1) usage of methods of the theory of security and mathematical modeling of integration (disintegration) processes of political and socioeconomic actors aimed and increase of their security; 2) assessment of challenges and unfavorable consequences using the paradigm “impossibility – risk – security”. The model of security is based on dichotomy (inextricable connection) of the values of sovereignty (development) and retention, and considers the key factors affecting successful development of the states, trans- and supranational formations: size and ethnic composition of population, interethnic relationship, social indicators of development. The experience of integration processes on the European continent is summarized. It is historically proven that the basis for economic integration consists in the effective mechanisms of political and military integration. The author develops three scenarios of integration in the post-Soviet space: 1) pessimistic, commonwealth of states – insurance of the freedom of movement of commodities, services, capital and workforce, and realization of the coordinated or single policy with regards to economic sectors; 2) realistic, federation with the elements of confederation – joint administration of the Union cover 50% of state functions; 3) optimistic, being a part of the Russian Federation – joint administration of Federation covers80% of state functions, with the possibility of significant increase of country’s security, if 3-7 republics of the former Soviet Union are a part of Russia. The quantitative analysis of geopolitical situation demonstrates the presence of favorable conditions for integration processes.
Zelenkov M. - Improvement of transport and logistic systems management in the conditions of growing threat of maritime terrorism and piracy pp. 20-35


Abstract: The object of this research is the transport and logistics system. The subject of this research is the maritime terrorism and piracy as a threat to transport and logistics process at sea. The goal consists to determine and substantiate the manifestations of maritime terrorism and piracy as a remaining threat to commercial operation of maritime transport. Analysis is conducted on the potential object of terrorist attacks, piracy affected areas, as well as tactics and methods used by terrorist organizations, which allowed formulating five main forms of maritime terrorism based on the criteria of use of maritime space and selection of targets by terrorists. Special role is assigned to determination of the key factors contributing to maritime terrorism and piracy, peculiarities of their manifestation in most problematic areas of the World Ocean. The scientific novelty consists in theoretical and practical substantiation of the choice of research methods. The acquired results led to the conclusion that each sea transport region has its own specificities in manifestation of maritime terrorism and piracy. At the same time, there are universal forms, methods and means of their manifestation. Based on these facts, the author determined and substantiated the three basic areas for improvement of transport and logistic systems management to attenuate threats of maritime terrorism and piracy in the XXI century.
Pashayev A.M., Nabiyev R.N., Nagiyev N.T., Velieva Q.D., Rustamov R.R. - Particularities of Designing Automated Distance Security Unit pp. 32-51


Abstract: The subject of the research is the modern security units that protect from terrorism and unlawful interference. The authors of the article examine modern security systems that are used to protect facilities against terrorism and unlawful interference. Studying perspectives for developing domestic and foreign means of security systems, the authors state that full safety and security of life supporting strategic facilities is possible only by combining several systems, i.e. video surveillance, access control, and security and fire alarm in natural sequence based on a single software and hardware system. Such intergrated security systems allow to provide security of major, minor and highly dangerous strategic facilities and life supporting facilities with a quality satisfying all modern requirements. The authors also provide a comparative analysis of the main technical characteristics of current security systems that protect especially important facilities as well as description of requirements for designing integrated security systems taking into account modern requirements. As a result, the authors of the article define technical requirements for creating improved automated remotely operated integrated security systems taking into account the requirements for operational efficiency, reliability and ergonomics of protection of strategically important facilities. Remote control feature is one of the main advantanges of the aforesaid system. The remote control is enabled through a digital network. This is what allows the aforesaid system to create monitoring connected points located in different parts of a facility at a long distance from one another.
