Detecting Zero-Day Attack Signatures Using Honeycomb in a Virtualized Network

Self-propagating malware, such as worms, have prompted cyber attacks that compromise regular computer systems via exploiting memory-related vulnerabilities which present threats to computer networks. A new generation worm could infect millions of hosts in just a few minutes, making on time human intrusion impossible. The new worms are spread over the network on regular basis and the computer systems and network vulnerabilities are growing enormously. Here, the authors also facing the problem of automatically and reliably detecting previously unknown attacks which are known as zero-day attack. In this paper, the authors described the use of the Honeycomb to detect Zero-day attack in Virtualized network.
