Abstract

This project will analyse assigned IP addresses and their corresponding networks to detect malicious networks.

Intellectual Merit

Design and run a classifier.

Broader Impacts

This project is part of our research on IP networks and their traffic leading to research publications in security conferences.

Scale of Use

DNS: We have a dataset of millions of networks and each job is supposed to process one network. Processing one network would entail reading into memory all of its DNS traffic which, from trial basis, required more than 128GB. Whois: Process 4 million Whois records which would require reasonable memory and CPU power.
