"Tagging and Tracking of Multi-level Host Events for Transparent Computing"
Advanced persistent threats (APTs) are able to render existing security mechanisms ineffective by blending in with normal user or program activities, for example, to blindside intrusion detection systems. In this talk, Mattia Fazzini, Ph.D. student in the College of Computing, will present "THEIA," a system in development for tagging and tracking multi-level host events or data for security. Sponsored by DARPA and the Air Force Research Laboratory, the THEIA project attempts to shed light on exactly where data moves and whether any malicious code, for example, is attached to data during transfer. THEIA tracks and records information at three layers: user interaction with a program, program processing of data input, and program and network interactions with an operating system. THEIA can monitor secure data flow from user to program, from program to file system storage, and storage to network output, and back again. Such completeness is critical to APT detection.
