New year, new algorithms

Written by Alex Pinto

Hello everyone and (belated) happy new year!

These have been months of very hard work for the MLSec Project team, which may help you understand (but maybe not quite forgive) the absence of blog posts.

Also, our project lead Alex Pinto had the privilege to present on BayThreat on December and announced some of the new directions that the project is taking and the new algorithms that we are working on. You can find the slide deck and the video for the presentation here:

Our main research focus right now is on using Machine Learning to detect Malware and Command & Control activity using only information from outbound firewallrecursive DNS queries and web proxy logs
