|May 5, 2014 09:01 AM EDT
Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat
protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks,
announced today that Marc Eisenbarth, Security Architect and Manager of
Research for the Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT)
and Jason Jones, Security Research Analyst for ASERT, will be speaking
at AusCERT 2014. During their joint presentation, they will draw on
their experience in malware reverse engineering and botnet tracking to
discuss the evolution of botnet tracking over time, sharing case studies
from real-world attack scenarios. In a separate presentation later in
the week, Marc Eisenbarth will share insight into how the ASERT team
data, the world's largest distributed honeynet made up of over 80 Tbps
of global Internet traffic, to share actionable intelligence both with
customers and with hundreds of CERT organizations around the world.
Separately at AusCERT, the ASERT team is also a finalist in the 2014
AusCERT Awards for Organizational Excellence. Winners will be announced
on May 15, 2014 at the AusCERT 2014 Gala Dinner. Arbor will also be
exhibiting at the show alongside local distributor Whitegold Solutions
in their stand on the exhibitor floor.
“BladeRunner: Adventures in Tracking Botnets”
The problem of tracking botnets is not a new one, but still proves to be
an important and fruitful research topic. ASERT has been tracking many
botnets for years using an internally built tracking system, which has
undergone a number of significant improvements and changes over the
years. The basic tenet is a language for implementing botnet
command-and-control mechanisms and tracking the resulting infiltrated
botnets. This presentation will cover the evolution of this system,
which offers a vignette of the evolution of the modern day botnet
itself. With this historical backdrop, Marc and Jason will discuss
ASERT’s current monitoring mechanisms and selected botnet family case
studies, highlighting results - including correlations gleaned from
data-mining the results and will conclude with offering a toolkit that
allows others to conduct similar investigations.

“ASERT: Internet-Scale Security”
Arbor Networks is a member of an elite group of institutions that might
be referred to as "super remediators." This is a reflection of having
both visibility and remediation capabilities at nearly every tier one
operator and the majority of service provider networks globally. The
Arbor Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT) shares
operationally viable intelligence with hundreds of international
Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) in an out-of-band manner,
apart from the Arbor Networks product line. ASERT also provides this
same data to thousands of network operators via in-band security content
feeds. ASERT also operates ATLAS, the world's largest distributed
honeynet, capturing 80 Tbps of global Internet traffic, or roughly one
third of all Internet traffic. This brief talk outlines various datasets
that ASERT maintains and offers some brief statistics and findings. Marc
will discuss the high-level process in which ASERT derives actionable
intelligence from these datasets and the following challenges in getting
the data to the party capable of performing the most efficient
remediation. This presentation will close by introducing various
research problems ASERT is interested in solving and our current
progress in these areas.

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage.
Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...

Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?
