Pagination or Media Count:
This project studies how to combat stealthy botnets and malwares by exploring a novel framework called IAPD, which stands for Integrated Adaptive and Proactive Defenses. To achieve the goal, we take a systems-and-theory methodology, meaning that on one hand, we want to build systems that can deal with stealthy attacks, and on the other hand, we want to build a theoretical and foundational understanding of botnets. Such a theoretical understanding allows us to pave the way for achieving principled modeling, management, and decision-making in cyber defense. For systems research, we have built a real-life malware behavior system called Online Malware Analysis System OMAS, which is under significant further enhancements in design and implementation towards a practical tool. For theoretical research, we have been building mathematical models for understanding and reasoning the attack-defense interactions in cyberspace.
