Month: March 2024

I had the wonderful opportunity to once again present my current work at Deepsec, in Vienna in November, 2023. I presented new work on URL Analysis at Scale.

The research resulted in building a web app and API that can use spelling, natural language processing, machine learning, and some other techniques to quickly analyze large lists of URLs or streaming URLs to find the ones that are likely malicious. It scales by using rabbitMQ and AWS Lambda’s to increase processing power as needed.

It took me about 3 months to create the project, and then I took a few months off after presenting. However, I’m back to working on it. My plan is to create a publicly accessible web app/API where others can use the detection I’ve built in.
