Solving the Trivial Problems Over and Over and Over Again

Category: Log Analysis,Security Article Reviews — Raffael Marty @ 1:24 pm

I read a lot of research papers and security articles. I am getting so tired seeing all these tools, research papers, and new algorithms that propose new approaches in computer security and then as a proof, they are solving one of the “old” problems: Detecting worms, portscans and finding peer-to peer traffic. Guys, it’s been done. We don’t need any more tools to do it. It’s easy and nothing to show off with!
Show me that other use-cases can be solved with your new approch. That will not only tell me that you actually thought about the problem space, but it will help the security community at large to tackle new problems (maybe some that they were not even aware of)!
