The Intrepid Approach

by Brent Kirkpatrick

(Date Published: . Revised: .)

Artificial intelligence for just-in-time security.

Engineering and math-based computer science is replete with the "possible" and the "impossible." For example, computing a shortest path in a graph is possible in polynomial time. However, provable computer security is undecidable and deemed "impossible." This merely means that it is impossible to automate the task of providing computer security.

Enter experimental science and artificial intelligence (AI). These methods involve hypothesis formulation, study design, statistical hypothesis testing, and Bayesian statistics. These tools make it feasible for experts to re-secure a computer that has been hacked.

A good scientist equiped with solid tools can thwart attacks faster than hackers can innovate them. This is without penetration testing and without having any insider information from hacker communities. Science and skill are all we need to stay secure.
