Call for Participation

We welcome you to participate in the Domain Generation Algorithms (DGAs) generated domain name detection and classification shared task track at DMD 2018. The shared task features problem statements in the field of traditional machine learning, deep learning and text analysis in Cyber Security.

The participants will receive an unbalanced dataset for the first subtask, so design your model accordingly. The testing data will be provided one day before the deadline. We require all the participants to submit their trained model and the results obtained on the test data provided by us. All the participants who submit their work are welcome to present their model at DMD 2018.

Note: All the accepted shared task working notes and workshop proceedings will be submitted to CEUR-WS.org for online publication. The extended version of the best working notes will be submitted to the Advanced Sciences and Technologies for Security Applications, Springer.

Tasks

  1. The Sub task1 is to identify the DGA generated domain name.
  2. The Sub task 2 is to detect and categorize the DGA generated domain name to their botnet family.

Apart from the shared task, we welcome scientific papers on topics related to Deep learning for Security Applications as part of ICACCI'18 and SSCC'18.

  • Botnet identification and Detection
  • Spam and Phishing Detection
  • Security in Social Networks
  • Learning in Adversarial Environments
  • Malware Identification, Analysis and Similarity
  • Intrusion Detection and Response
  • Representation and Detection of Social Engineering Attacks
  • Classification of Sequences of System and Network Events
  • Application of Learning to Computer Forensics
