Evolutionary Strategies for Secure Moving Target Configuration Discovery
author
Smith, Robert Walter
abstract
Defense against many cyber security threats can be implemented with existing software on the machine, without requiring patches for current programs or the installation of specialized security software. There are certain operating system or program parameters which, if set properly, can close security vulnerabilities. Learning a way to securely configure computers to prevent attacks potentially allows organizations to defend their machines with a relatively low cost.
