Proactive ransomware prevention in pervasive IoMT via hybrid machine learning

Usman Tariq, Bilal Tariq


Advancements in information and communications technology (ICT) have fundamentally transformed computing, notably through the internet of things (IoT) and its healthcare-focused branch, the internet of medical things (IoMT). These technologies, while enhancing daily life, face significant security risks, including ransomware. To counter this, the authors present a scalable, hybrid machine learning framework that effectively identifies IoMT ransomware attacks, conserving the limited resources of IoMT devices. To assess the effectiveness of their proposed solution, the authors undertook an experiment using a state-of-the-art dataset. Their framework demonstrated superiority over conventional detection methods, achieving an impressive 87% accuracy rate. Building on this foundation, the framework integrates a multi-faceted feature extraction process that discerns between benign and malign actions, with a subsequent in-depth analysis via a neural network. This advanced analysis is pivotal in precisely detecting and terminating ransomware threats, offering a robust solution to secure the IoMT ecosystem.
