ChatGPT, DALL-E, and the Future of AI-Based Identity Fraud

Avidan Lamdan of AU10TIX looks at the current state of identity fraud, AI tech, and the ever-evolving future of AI-based identity fraud. As artificial intelligence advances, it’s taking on an ability to mimic humans in amazing ways. While the potential for positive impact is enormous, it also poses a risk for malicious use, particularly in the realm of synthetic identity fraud. This type of fraud involves bad actors using a combination of real and fake information to create a new identity, and can be perpetrated using deepfakes — artificially created media such as videos or images that are so convincing they appear to be real — and other forms of AI-generated identity fraud. While current ID verification solutions are effective against more established forms of identity fraud, they may not be equipped to tackle the newer generative AI-based threats. In this article, we will explore how AI technologies and large neural networks like ChatGPT and DALL-E are being exploited through deception. We will also discuss the emerging technologies that can help address this challenge.

The AI Era: Why Cybersecurity Needs to Be Ready

Dr. Jason Zhang of Anomali warns all involved in cybersecurity that the AI era is here, and we all need to be ready to brave the new world. From a defender’s perspective, the advent of AI is a welcome development. It can play an incredibly useful role in identifying malicious behavior from the millions of different events taking place each day across a network. For instance, it’s increasingly common for the bad guys to leverage legitimate software used in the Windows system to execute malware. That makes it hard to differentiate between malicious and legitimate behavior, which both use similar tools to execute. But here’s an instance where leveraging machine learning and AI improves the signal-to-noise ratio in the events to help security teams differentiate between the malicious and the benign. However, at the same time, AI now serves as a valuable weapon for cyber-criminals and other malicious actors to analyze huge amounts of data. That helps them more precisely target victims and automate their processes to speed up the cadence of attacks, making it harder for targeted victims to keep up with the pace of their cyber barrages.

DPUs and the Importance of Data Center Fabric Technology

Soni Jiandani of AMD gives us a closer look at DPUs (Data Processing Units) and the importance of data center fabric technology. Over the past decade, the evolution of data center fabrics has evolved into high-performing leaf-spine topologies to address the volume and velocity of emerging application architectures. Despite advancements in these fabrics, their associated services have not kept pace, resulting in efficiency bottlenecks and security vulnerabilities that impede productivity. This is where Data Processing Units (DPUs) come into play. DPUs are typically integrated into Smart Switches and other network devices to enable distributed services. Distributed services technology allows customers to scale and realize the potential of next-generation data center technology without the need to rip and replace existing infrastructure. DPUs and the advanced stateful software services they enable can be added incrementally to the fabric without adding performance and administrative overhead to application servers.
