Arbor Networks’ Marc Eisenbarth and Jason Jones to Discuss Botnet Tracking and Intelligence Sharing at AusCERT 2014

Arbor 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 leverages ATLAS® 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.
