FireEye Cyber Defense Summit
Who: Tim Helming, Director of Product Management at DomainTools
Where: Washington Hilton Hotel, Washington, DC
When: Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 2:40 p.m. EDT
What: “Where Badness Lurks: New Threats Demand a New Cartography”
- Geography-based threat maps abound, but while they make good eye candy, they can sometimes be of limited use to security personnel.
- DomainTools has analyzed its databases of domain and IP profile data to discover patterns of concentration of malicious Internet activity by TLD, registrant email provider, privacy service, and other non-geographic taxonomies.
- Because domain and IP profile data has been linked to recent breaches, DomainTools gives special focus to the role of bulk domain registration agents in the development of attack infrastructure, asking the question: are these actors intrinsically suspect?
