Inside the Hacker's Profiling Project
Imagine being able to preview an attacker's next move based on the traces left on compromised machines. That's the aim of the Hacker's Profiling Project (HPP), an open methodology that hopes to enable analysts to work on the data (logs, rootkits, and any code) left by intruders from a different point of view, providing them with a profiling methodology that will identify the kind of attacker and therefore his modus operandi and potential targets.
We discussed the project with co-founder Stefania Ducci, criminologist for United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). In mid-2004 Ducci began collaborating with Raoul Chiesa on what became the HPP. NewsForge | Inside the Hacker's Profiling Project
