Building a provenance-based intrusion detection system

Abstract

Provenance is the representation of a system execution as a directed acyclic graph. Whole-system provenance graphs, representing the execution of an entire system from initialisation to shut down, can be comprised of millions of graph elements. In this talk, I will present my work on the development of a provenance-based intrusion detection system. I will discuss the development of the stack from the kernel-level capture mechanism to the algorithm used to perform intrusion detection. Finally, I will discuss planned future work and areas of potential collaborations.
