My GIAC Certified Intrusion Analyst (GCIA) Gold paper was accepted today: Detecting Spam with Genetic Regular Expressions.
The concept behind the paper is to see if regexes may be 'evolved' via genetic algorithms to detect and block spam.
Short answer: it works. For more details (including POC code), check out the paper.
Many thanks to my GCIA Gold adviser Johannes Ullrich!
I'd love to hear any feedback on the paper.
