We present an extended version of Exposure and the experimental results on 17 months of its deployment on real data.

We introduce a new framework called MR-TRIAGE leveraging multi-criteria data clustering (MCDC) to perform scalable data clustering on large security data sets and further implement a set of efficient algorithms in a 3-stage MapReduce paradigm.

We proposed a new approach which applies the mass assignment-based fuzzy association rules mining (MASS-FARM) algorithm to Twitter data analysis, for the first time, to automatically extract useful and meaningful knowledge from large-scale data set.

This paper discusses the challenges of Internet routing anomalies and BGP hijacks investigations. With the help of a real-world potential BGP hijack case study, we describe our investigation process and highlight the challenges and limitations faced.

We present AESOP, a scalable algorithm that identifies malicious executable files by leveraging a novel combination of locality-sensitive hashing and belief propagation. AESOP attained early labeling of 99% of benign files and 79% of malicious files with a 0.9961 true positive rate at 0.0001 false positive rate.

We present a comprehensive study on the effectiveness of risk prediction based only on the web browsing behavior of users.
