The Josef Ressel Center for Unified Threat Intelligence on Targeted Attacks (TARGET) is a research institution operated by the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences. Its mission is to explore novel techniques for detecting and mitigating targeted attacks on IT systems.READ MORE
We aim at developing threat intelligence methodologies that observe the system as a whole and apply formal modeling in conjuncture with the collection, processing, comparison, and analysis of system state information.
Next to extracting various attack indicators, we aim to develop a universal model for describing malicious behavior
Our applied work focuses on behavioral analysis of IT system activity and malicious software on API call level
Anomaly detection and threat response is enabled by data mining procedures utilizing a multitude of algorithms
HONEYPOT & KERNEL MONITORING
We use honeypot and kernel monitoring technology to tempt attackers and learn about APT behavior
We are a versatile team of reasearchers, tinkerers, and hackers.
