In this talk, we will take an in-depth look at various mechanisms of attack detection, from signatures and regular expressions to machine learning. Attack detection is critical for most security solutions, whether we are talking about a load balancer-based (NIDS, WAF), host-based or in-application solutions (HIDS, RASP). Interestingly, regardless of the differences in architecture and data flow, most solutions use similar detection principles and techniques. We will explore how the detection architecture evolved over time and how the new generation of detection logic, such as the architecture implemented by some of the advanced application security tools, are principally different from that of the legacy solutions.
