Mal-Netminer: Malware Classification System
based on Social Network Analysis of Call Graph
Mal-Netminer is the system enables classify malware using automatic classifiers by employing graph metrics commonly used in social network analysis. To analyze the general structural information of malware and measure the influence of system calls found in malware, Mal-Netminer adopts social network analysis. Our system uses social network metrics such as the degree distribution, degree centrality, and average distance, which are implicitly equivalent to distinct behavioral characteristics.
