Automatic Malware Detection and Analysis
Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) can supervise students on master theses on automatic malware detection and classification. New and unknown malware might be detected and classified using the knowledge of known malware with similar intent or origin. The thesis will explore the effectiveness and precision of various machine learning techniques applied to this problem. The work will consider features from automatic binary analysis, automatic dynamic analysis and features from external sources.
For some topics it might be necessary for the student to get a Norwegian security clearance.
