Security Implications of ChatGPT RC by Cloud Security Alliance - CSA
  1. Introduction
    Welcome to Cloud Security Alliance’s first whitepaper addressing the extremely popular generative artificial intelligence technology: Security Implications of ChatGPT. Businesses, nations and cybersecurity experts are playing catchup with ChatGPT’s viral adoption and seeking to understand how it should be governed and used. CSA has moved rapidly to issue this release candidate whitepaper to assist the community in understanding ChatGPT in context and identifying the pragmatic issues that apply to all stakeholders.
    Large language models like ChatGPT have been recognized as powerful tools that can significantly enhance productivity across various industries. In the realm of cybersecurity, they show promise in tasks such as vulnerability identification and social engineering. However, this potential raises critical questions about the fine line between ethical and malicious use of these technologies.
    This paper aims to provide a high-level overview of the implications of ChatGPT in the cybersecurity industry, without delving into the granular details of artificial intelligence. We will explore the key concepts and domains that are crucial for understanding ChatGPT’s capabilities, as well as the potential impact on businesses.
    As we examine these implications, it is important to consider the challenges of differentiating
    between legitimate and malicious use of ChatGPT, such as distinguishing between marketing
    emails, company communications, and phishing emails, or identifying vulnerabilities for patching
    versus hacking entry points.
    Additionally, we anticipate that the integration of ChatGPT will lead to productivity improvements for cybersecurity professionals and offer innovative training methods for aspiring individuals in the field. This technology will likely also transform software development practices, particularly in the development of applications.
    By examining the current state of ChatGPT and its potential implications, we aim to provide a
    comprehensive understanding of how this technology may shape the future of the cybersecurity
    We understand that there are several other generative AI tools and ultimately CSA has no way of
    predicting how this market will evolve and which solutions will prove enduring. We plan to provide broad-based coverage of AI security issues across all technologies over time, particularly as they are delivered as a service. However, ChatGPT’s outsized popularity today has mandated that we delve into this technology exclusively as a matter of public interest.
