Security Researchers to Demonstrate How to Track Internet Threats by Visualizing IP and DNS Data
|WHO:||Dhia Mahjoub, senior security researcher at OpenDNS, builds threat detection systems based on the monitoring and analysis of internet traffic and hosting infrastructures. He holds a doctorate in computer science from Southern Methodist University with a specialty in graph theory applied to wireless sensor networks.|
|Thibault Reuille, security researcher at OpenDNS, is the creator of OpenGraphiti, an open source 3D data visualization engine. Prior to OpenDNS, he was a software engineer for NVIDIA where he helped develop the NVIDIA Parallel Nsight integrated development environment for GPU computing and graphics applications. He holds a master’s degree in information technology from the EPITA in Paris, France.|
|WHAT:||Criminals are using the naming, hosting and routing infrastructures of the Internet to launch attacks and cover their tracks. OpenDNS researchers will present a new approach for detecting threats at the DNS and IP level using 3D visualization techniques. They will describe several successful case studies involving well-known malware campaigns and how visualization was used to gather intelligence to preemptively detect and block malicious IP infrastructures.|
|WHERE:||Kaspersky Security Analyst Summit (SAS), JW Marriott Cancun Resort, Cancún, Q.R., Mexico|
|WHEN:||Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.|
