Abstract

Deception Inception

Enterprises commonly collect massive amounts of security related data, such as network logs, as a means of improving security, satisfying compliance regulations, etc.  Unfortunately, the potential actionable cybersecurity information within this data goes largely untapped for several reasons including cost, lack of technical ability and understanding for how to approach this data, and a general failure to make security a priority.

The basic premise of Tresata’s approach to intrusion detection expands on the concept of “belief propagation” – that beliefs about who is “good” and who is “bad” travel through a graph over many hops. 

Using a distributed approach and our highly scalable graph-based network traversal and discovery software, we apply this premise to isolate the epicenter of machine infections (and other malicious actions) by analyzing network traffic between computers inside our network and servers outside of it.
