This project was realized during my bachelor’s program at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences. KAMAS is a knowledge-assisted visual analytics prototype for behavioral malware analysis. It allows IT-security experts to categorize and store potentially harmful system call sequences (rules) in a knowledge database. In the course of the KAVA-TIME project, I was allowed to implement additional funtionalities into the already existing KAMAS prototype.
More precisely, I was dealing with the design and implementation of a so-called Rule Creation Area (RCA) which enables analysts to create individual rules. All functionalites were developed using the programming language Java. The implemented RCA and its functionalities then were evaluated by domain experts. All the results of this particular research project were summarized in following scientific publications:
