Complex network analysis for cybersecurity – CNACYS 2023

The Internet, the Web, on-line social networks and almost all interactions in the cyber space can be modeled as complex networks sharing untrivial topological features such as spareness, small-world feature, heterogeneous degree distribution and high clustering coefficient. Complex network analysis has raised a lot of attention in recent years in a wide variety of fields including social, technological, biological, and power-grid networks. A rich algorithmic arsenal is already available to gain insights from such networks including identifying influential or vulnerable actors, link prediction, anomalies detection, community identification as well as understanding and predicting spreading phenomena on such networks. This special session aims at providing a venue for sharing latest advances in applying complex networks analysis to cybersecurity.

The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to:

  • Complex network analysis for: intrusion detection, botnet activity detection, anomaly detection for network security and management, network traffic analysis
  • Attack graphs modeling and application, graph-based threat assessment
  • Multiplex et multilayer network analysis for cyber security
  • Autoencoders and representation learning for graphs
  • Network embedding techniques for network security and management problems
  • Parallel algorithms for dynamic and large-scale complex network
  • Network sampling and summarizing techniques
  • Explainable Network analysis approaches for cybersecurity
  • Visualization of dynamic and large-scale networks
