Malware Detection and Pattern Recognition using Deep Learning
Submitted by Vidyasagar Nallapati (@dumbyoda) on Thursday, 27 April 2017
Malware is a serious and evolving threat to security across corporates and governments, the research on malware detection using data mining, pattern recognition and machine learning methods had been there for a long time. Signature-based solutions, Heuristic techniques, Sandbox solutions have been in use and several frameworks are built around them however they are built on shallow learning architectures and which are somewhat unsatisfying for malware detection problems. In this presentation and paper, I would be discussing on how Deep learning algorithms can be applied for pattern recognition and prediction of malware. The models are greedy layerwise training operation for unsupervised feature learning, followed by supervised parameter fine-tuning and optimising for best accuracy.
- Malware Detection Analytics
- Various Machine Learning Algorithms that are applied in Malware detection
- Architecture of how Deep Learning can be applied to Malware detection
- Practical implementations of few actual scenarios
- Future and References
