Applied Machine Learning for Data exfil and other fun topics

Machine learning techniques have been gaining significant traction in a variety of industries in recent years, and the security industry is no exception to it’s influence. These techniques, when applied correctly, can help assist in many data driven tasks to provide interesting insights and decision recommendations to analyst. While these techniques can be powerful, for the researchers and analyst who are not well versed in machine learning, there can exist a gap in understanding that may prevent them from looking at and applying these tools to problems machine learning techniques could assist with.

The goal of this presentation is to help researchers, analyst, and security enthusiast get their hands dirty applying machine learning to security problems. We will walk the entire pipeline from idea to functioning tool on several diverse security related problems, including offensive and defensive use cases for machine learning. Through these examples and demonstrations, we will be able to explain in a very concrete fashion every step involved to tie in machine learning to the specified problem. In addition, we will be releasing every tool built, along with source code and related datasets, to enable those in attendance to reproduce the research and examples on their own. Machine learning based tools that will be released with this talk include an advanced obfuscation tool for data exfiltration, a network mapper, and command and control panel identification module.
