Dr. Hota's Invited talk at BiDA 2014, Hyderabad

Dr. Hota gave an Invited talk on "Security & Privacy concerns in Campus wide networks: Easing out using Bigdata Analytics" at the National Workshop on Big Data Analytics (BiDA 2014), held at the C.R. Rao Advanced Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science, UoH, Hyderabad on 22nd August 2014.

Talk Abstract: Several open source and proprietary products detect and alert policy violations for usage of P2P applications using techniques like port-based analysis, and protocol analysis. In this talk, we will assess the impact of P2P traffic on perimeter security appliances, and develop intelligent approaches using machine learning techniques to counter their impact on campus wide networks. We will discuss the usage of Hadoop, Hive and Mahout to scale the data analytics framework that can capture Gigabytes of network traffic and try to figure out if there is any existence of anomalous P2P traffic like Botnet, or Malware within the corporate network traffic.
