In this article, we will continue to discuss various backdoor attacks as we did in our previous article. If you don't know what a backdoor attack is in the first place, it will be difficult to understand it, so we recommend you read the previous article before reading this one.

The Big Picture of Backdoor Attacks

This diagram is the one I included in the previous article. A backdoor attack differs from the well-known Adversarial Attack in that it doesn't only attack when the model is deployed, but also applies to things like data collection and training. This should give you an idea of the breadth of application of backdoor attacks.

There are six major attack configurations for backdoor attacks, as follows

A. Outsourcing Attack

B. Pretrained Attack

C. Data Collection Attack

D. Collaborative Learning Attack

E. Post-Deployment Attack

F. Code Poisoning Attack

In this article, I will introduce the typical attack techniques of D~F.

Introduction of each attack

This chapter begins with an overview of each attack, followed by an introduction to the typical techniques of each attack.
