Dr. Christopher KrÃ¼gel is an Associate Professor and the holder of the Eugene Aas Chair in the Computer Science Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara, working on computer and communications security issues. He is going to visit NET group and give a talk on "Automated Malware Analysis" on May 8, 2012, 16:30, in SR3.101, Institute of Computer Science, Goldschmidtstr. 7.
Automated Malware Analysis
software (malware) is an important threat and root cause of many
security problems on the Internet. In this talk, I will discuss our
recent efforts on malware analysis, detection, and mitigation. First, I
will introduce our infrastructure to collect and analyze malicious code
samples. Then, I will present techniques to improve the quality of the
results produced by automated, dynamic malware analysis systems.
Finally, I will discuss ways in which these results can be leveraged for
the detection and mitigation of malicious code.
