iGen: Toward Automatic Generation and Analysis of Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) using Convolutional Neural Network


Abstract Field of cyber threats is evolving rapidly and every day multitude of new information about malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) is generated in the form of malware reports, blog articles, forum posts, etc. However, current Threat Intelligence (TI) systems have several limitations. First, most of the TI systems examine and interpret data manually with the help of analysts. Second, some of them generate Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) directly using regular expressions without understanding the contextual meaning of those IOCs from the data sources which allows the tools to include lot of false positives. Third, lot of TI systems consider either one or two data sources for the generation of IOCs, and misses some of the most valuabl... (more)
