Project: PTDC/EEA-TEL/101880/2008 - Design and Implementation of a BotNet Detection System

Acronym: Bots
Main Objective:
The main purpose of this project is the development of a laboratorial platform for the real time detection of botnets and subsequent counter-measures deployment. The proposed detection approach should be based on diverse information types: the historical traffic profile of network users, on mathematical traffic models that can accurately describe network traffic and/or user profiles, on traffic measurements that can be carried out on some specific probes and on artificial intelligence systems that can take some combination of inputs in order to generate a relevant output that can used by the decision support system.
