Weekly Report -- 30/09/2016




Finished the draft of my NNTSC paper. Got some initial feedback from Brendon which I've been able to incorporate into the paper.

Still not entirely happy with Influx-NNTSC and netevmon running on the same machine, as the combined memory usage will push skeptic's current hardware to its limit. Experimented with running netevmon on a separate VM just to make sure that a remote event database does actually work, so we at least have the option of moving netevmon onto its own dedicated machine.

Finished my implementation of the imprecise pattern mining algorithm. Starting working on a more homegrown algorithm for detecting repeated sequences of syscalls within a larger trace, based on existing techniques for using a suffix tree to find repeated substrings within strings.
