Pattern Analysis and Signature Extraction for Intrusion Attacks on Web Services
The increasing popularity of web service technology is attracting hackers and attackers to hack the web services and the servers on which they run. Organizations are therefore facing the challenge of implementing adequate security for Web Services. A major threat is that of intruders which may maliciously try to access the data or services. The automated methods of signature extraction extract the binary pattern blindly resulting in more false positives. In this paper a semi automated approach is proposed to analyze the attacks and generate signatures for web services. For data collection, apart from the conventional SOAP data loggers, honey pots are also used that collect small data which is of high value.
