New research carried out in collaboration with Charles Darwin University (CDU) has found that artificial intelligence (AI) could be a key tool in combating the growing global risk of cybercrime.

 

The study, conducted by researchers at the CDU Energy and Resources Institute in collaboration with the Crist Academy Institute of Advanced Studies in India, explored the use of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) in pentesting, known as cybersecurity testing, to identify weaknesses in security systems. The article, “GenAI for Pentesting: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” was published in the Journal of International Information Security.

The researchers used ChatGPT to conduct a range of pentesting activities in reconnaissance, scanning, vulnerability assessment, exploitation and reporting.

Co-author and senior lecturer in information technology at CDU Dr Bharanidharan Shanmugam said that the purpose of the study was to explore the possibility of using AI to automate certain types of pentesting and the results showed that ChatGPT has huge potential.
