Programmable Data Gathering for Detecting Stegomalware

Carrega, Alessandro; Caviglione, Luca; Repetto, Matteo; Zuppelli, Marco

The “arm race” against malware developers re- quires to collect a wide variety of performance measurements, for instance to face threats leveraging information hiding and steganography. Unfortunately, this process could be time- consuming, lack of scalability and cause performance degra- dations within computing and network nodes. In this paper we propose to take advantage of the joint activities of two H2020 Projects, namely ASTRID and SIMARGL. To prove the benefits of the cooperation between the solutions developed by the two aforementioned projects, this paper reports a preliminary performance evaluation on the use of the extended Berkeley Packet Filter to gather data for detecting stegomalware.
