Call For Papers

Malware Memory Forensics (MMF) Workshop

The Malware Memory Forensics Workshop will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, Tuesday, December 9, 2014, in conjunction with the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC). ACSAC will be held at the Hyatt French Quarter, a New Orleans luxury hotel located in the historic French Quarter.

Over the past few years, memory forensics has emerged and proven to be a critical area for computer security and forensics. It is used to extract artifacts from the physical memory of a computer system and then analyze them to identify any traces of an attack or malicious activity. Such activity might include execution of a malicious process, unauthorized modification of pointers and data structures, malicious patching of benign code, etc. Memory forensics can play a critical role in the detection and analysis of sophisticated and stealthy malware, including zero-day attacks. However, automatically extracting and analyzing artifacts is a big challenge in memory forensics. The goal of this workshop is to explore new techniques that can facilitate the automatic detection and analysis of in-memory malware through memory forensic analysis. Papers of interest including (but not limited to) the following subject categories are solicited:

• Statistical and data mining techniques for malware analysis and detection
• Memory forensics for cyber physical systems such as control systems, SCADA, and smart grids
• Static and dynamic analysis for malware
• Cloud and virtual machine introspection
• Extraction and analysis of application and operating systems structures
• Memory forensics for mobile devices including smart phones
• Tool testing and development
• Digital evidence storage, preservation, and the law
• Anti-Forensics

Submissions should be 4-8 pages, using the double-column ACM proceedings format. Submission website is at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mmf14
