D24/D6.4 Second Open Workshop Proceedings

|
This is the deliverable for the second wombat open workshop, BADGERS, that took place within the EuroSys 2011 conference on April 10 in Salzburg (Austria). In this document we discuss the preparation of the second workshop, our expectations vs. feedback and impressions we collected by authors and attenders. Proceedings are included.

D21/D4.7 Consolidated report with evaluation results

|
This is the final deliverable for Workpackage 4 within the wombat project. In this document we discuss the final extensions and improvements to our data collection and analysis techniques that were implemented as part of wombat. Furthermore, we present some additional results obtained from the analysis of data collected within wombat.

The Wombat API (WAPI) is now available on sourceforge

|

WAPI, or WOMBAT API, is a SOAP-based API built in the context of the project to facilitate the remote access and exploration of security-related datasets.

The package contains all the essential code to start using the WAPI. The WAPI represents an attempt to tackle two main challenges for security data providers:

- Many of the data access primitives are not easily scriptable. Many data sources provide web-based interfaces that, while easily accessible by human operators, are not convenient for automated analysis.

- The interfaces for security datasets are very diverse in structure and methodology. The analyst who wants to take advantage of multiple data sources to perform correlations among them is thus forced to implement ad-hoc plugins and parsers for each data feed. This process is not necessarily a simple task, and requires the analyst to fully understand, for example, the schema of the SQL database provided by the data owner.



You can find the package on sourceforge : http://sourceforge.net/projects/wombat-api/


More information and details on WAPI are available in the deliverable D10/D6.3.

Wombat Deliverable D18/D4.6 Final description of contextual features

|
The objective of Workpackage 4 is to develop techniques to characterize the malicious
code that is collected in the previous workpackage. The main idea is to enrich the
collected code thanks to metadata that might reveal insights into the origin of the code
and the intentions of those that created, released or used it.
This deliverable is an extension of D15 (D4.5), and provides a final description of the
contextual features collected within the wombat consortium. Furthermore, it presents
initial results, statistics, and insights obtained by analyzing the collected contextual
features.

This deliverable is a final report on the experimental results obtained by using structural
features to characterize executable code. It discusses and evaluates a number of tech-
niques, based on these features, that have been developed in the context of the wombat
project, and aim to provide a deeper understanding of malicious code and of the relations
between malicious code samples.

Stefano Zanero from Politecnico di Milano will present the WOMBAT project during the ENISA Awareness phone conference on June 20th, 2008. We will briefly describe WOMBAT, an EU FP7 STREP project which began on 01/01/2008, which aims to build an automatic, global network which can perform early warning, automatic classification and analysis of malware and exploits as they propagate, or are used, worldwide. We will outline the challenges we see in the project, and the project goals.
