Graph modeling allows numerous security problems to be tackled in a general
way, however, little work has been done to understand their ability to
withstand adversarial attacks. We design and evaluate two novel graph attacks
against a state-of-the-art network-level, graph-based detection system...
work highlights areas in adversarial machine learning that have not yet been
addressed, specifically: graph-based clustering techniques, and a global
feature space where realistic attackers without perfect knowledge must be
accounted for (by the defenders) in order to be practical. Even though less
informed attackers can evade graph clustering with low cost, we show that some
practical defenses are possible.
