A Low Cost Worm Detection Technique based on Flow Payload Clustering

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, damages of information systems by worms have been reported at the global level. To control these damages, some automatic signature genenation techniques have been proposed. These techniques use as signature the set of common character strings in the payload of multiple worm flows of the same kind. But these techniques need multiple common character strings for each worm to achieve a high detection rate. Calculation cost is a serious issue for these techniques. In this paper, we propose a novel scheme that does not use common character strings. The proposed scheme uses a 256 dimensions vector based on the appearance frequencies of 256 character codes. This vector is used as a mean to detect worms with low cost. In addition, we construct a cheap worm detection system by using the proposed method as the first stage analysis of conventional Intrusion Detection System (IDS). We evaluate the proposed scheme through experiments and present its performance.
