Abstract— today cyber-security becomes
a need as it provides protection from highly vulnerable intrusions and threats.it
is impractical for human without considerable automation to handle cyber threat
and highly vulnerable intrusions. To handle this situation, it needs to develop sophisticated, flexible,
robust and adaptable software also called cyber defense system (CDS). This is
enough intelligent system to detect a variety of threats, refine and update these
technologies to combat it. Intrusion Detection and system (IDS), Data Mining
(DM) and Computational Intelligence system (CIS) are Artificial Techniques (AI)
techniques which provide detection and prevention of highly vulnerable threats and intrusions. This paper describes a critical overview of various techniques of Intrusion Detection
system (IDS), Data Mining (DM), Computational Intelligence System (CIS) and
Artificial Intelligence (AI).The aim of this overview to present the progress
in the field of AI for defending from cyber-crimes, to describe how these
techniques are effective as well as provide the scope of future work.

is a most complex problem in the cyber
world.it is defined as any illegal activity that applied to a computer to harm the system or system
files and the computer security.
A recent study on cybercrime shows that it
is impractical to handle cyber-crimes for human without considerable automation.
Furthermore, conventionally fixed
algorithms are also not enough to handle the dynamically evolving cyber threats.
To handle this situation, it needs to
develop sophisticated and flexible software for protection and prevention from
cyber threats. Cyber Defense system able to detect many of the cyber-attack and
alerts the system. Human intervention is simply not enough to analysis the cyber threats and appropriate
response. Cyber-attack is carried out with smart agents of worms and viruses.
Smart semi-autonomous agents used to defend against
cyber-threats. This so-called system able to find out the type of
threat, the response of threat, and the object of threat.it also able to find
out how to check and stop the secondary attack.
A variety of CDS were introduced but there is need to refine and update CDS to
introduce the various techniques of AI. These techniques improve the security measures.

is an electronic machine that is enough intelligent to act like human beings. It resolves the complicated
problems rapidly than human beings such as playing the chess game. This paper represents
the specific method of AI to solve cybercrimes. These methods are described
Artificial Neural Net is introduced
after inspiring the Natural Biological Nervous System.
A Neuron is formed by interconnected processing components. ANN consists
of a number of artificial neurons.it works like a human brain but it has fewer
complex neuron connection than the biological
nervous system. Neuron received a lot of inputs and rapidly parallel
respond to it. A neural net begins with the invention of perceptron by
Frank Rosenblatt in 1957.the main feature of ANN is rapidly responding and speed of operation. ANN is mainly
configured for learning, classification, for recognizing
the pattern.it is also applied to select the appropriate response.
An ANN is applied for DOS
recognition in the network, worm recognition in computer, malware recognition
in the computer, and for zombie
recognition in computer and malware classification in forensic investigation.
ANN is well liked for its high speed to
perform an operation.it may be implemented in hardware as well as software. If
it is implemented in hardware than it is used in the graphics processor. A lot of technologies of ANN is developed such
as third generation neural nets.
A distinguish feature of ANN that it is used for intrusion detection
system and perform high-speed operations.
Intelligent agents are computer-generated
effects that show respond when an unexpected event occurs. They exchange information with each other for motility and flexibility in the environment to make the IA technology more effectively to combat against cyber-attack. IA
give more information about the cyber-attack .it work on internet and give
information without our permission.
Intelligent behavior of
intelligent agent makes them more special
reactiveness, understanding of associate agent communication language,
reactivity (ability to create some alternatives and to act).they use for
mobility, reflection ability and for planning ability.
It is used against DDOS.
Intelligent agents are cooperative agents that give efficient defense against
DOS and DDOS attack. ‘Cyber police’
consist of intelligent agents is developed after solving some commercial,
industrial and legal problems. It supports the intelligent agent’s quality and
communication but inaccessible to foes.
A multi-agent tool is required for an entire operating system of cyberspace such as a neural network-based intrusion detection and
hybrid multi-agent techniques.
One distinguishes application of intelligent agent
is agent communication language.
system is most commonly used AI
tool. This system is used to get inquiries from system or clients to discover
the answers. It supports direct decision support. Such as it is used in
finance, medical diagnose and cyberspace.
An expert system is used for small as well large and complex problems like in hybrid
system consists of large knowledge, it stores
all information regarding a specific application. Expert system shell (ESS) is
used to support the adding of knowledge in knowledge base expert system, it can
be extended with the program to cooperate
the client as well as another program
that may be utilized in the hybrid expert system.
ESS is empty knowledge base.
Hence, to make an expert
system, first select an expert system shell, second it gets knowledge about and
filling the knowledge base with knowledge. The second step is more complex and time-consuming.
Expert system is used is cyber
defense. It determines the safety efforts and helps how to use ideally in
resources that are limited in quantity.it is used in network intrusion
detection which is knowledge base. In
short, the expert system is used to
convert the system knowledge into programming language code. For example, CD expert system is used for security
The method is applied to resolve the complicated problems where there no
other methods are applicable. People used
it constantly in their everyday life without knowing it. General algorithm of
search is used to search the problem, some of it is able to check the problem and provide a solution another only estimate
If additional knowledge adds to the search algorithm than drastically
improve the search. Search is almost used in every intelligible program and it increases the efficiency of the program. Many
search application used in the AI program to search the problem, for example,
dynamic programming is applied to detect the optimized security problem, it is hidden from the system, it is invisible in
AI applications. Such as alpha-beta
search, search on trees, minimum search, and random search and so on.
The ??-search is developed to use for computer chess .divide and conquer
is used in complex problems especially in that
application where choose the best action. It is used to estimate the
minimum and maximum possibilities. This enables ignore many of the options and speeds
up the search.
Learning is an extending knowledge system by arranging or extending the knowledge
base. This is a significant problem of the Artificial Intelligence on which
developer are still work. Machine Learning consists
of a computational method to add advanced
knowledge, new skills, and an advanced way
to keep, organize the existing knowledge.
Learning method contains 2 types i.e.
supervised and unsupervised learning. This is utilitarian when multiple data
exist. It is originally applied in cyber defense where abundant data exists. Data Mining
is commonly used for Unsupervised Learning in Artificial Intelligence.
Unsupervised is utilitarian for neural nets, in particular, of autonomous maps.
Parallel algorithm method is a learning method that executes on hardware. Genetic algorithms, ANNs
help in representing these strategies.
Such as Genetic Algorithm and Fuzzy Logic are applied to recognize intrusions.
applications of learning are Machine Learning,
Supervised and Unsupervised Learning, Malware Detection, Intrusions Detection and
Self- organized maps.
Machine learning is an enough
intelligent system which is applied to recognize the pattern.
Satisfaction method is applied with AI to discover solutions to that problems which are introduced by a set
of constraint on the solution e.g. logical statements, tables, equations,
constraint solution consists of a collection
of tuples (ordered pair, row) that meet all restrictions. There are a lot of
problems exist that have different constraint solution
because solution depends on the character of constraints. Such as constraints on finite sets,
functional constraints, rational trees etc.
Briefly, almost every problem is
represented like Constraint Solving Problems. Constraint satisfaction is used
in decision making and situation analysis in AI.
