A network interface device includes a memory and a processor operable to receive a malicious packet marker, store the malicious packet marker to the memory, monitor network data packets flowing in the network interface device, determine that a packet matches the malicious packet marker, and store log information from the packet to the memory.


An information handling system includes an input and a processor. The processor receives a sequence of events, detects a first event within the sequence of events, determines a first state of a Markov model associated with the first event, detects a second event within the sequence of events, determines a second state of the Markov model associated with the second event, detects a state transition from the first state to the second state in the Markov model, determines a partial match of the sequence of events to a kill sequence of events in response to the state transition from the first state to the second state in the Markov model, and logs all events that occurred in the information handling system in between the first event and the second event.

A method for operating a secure man-in-the-middle proxy includes intercepting an attempt to establish a connection between an application and a network server associated with a whitelisted hostname, establishing a secure connection to the network server, checking the secure connection against the stored combination of certificate, encryption protocol, and encryption cipher for the whitelisted hostname, and forwarding traffic between the application and the network server at the whitelisted hostname if the secure connection matches the stored combination of certificate, encryption protocol, and encryption cipher for the whitelisted hostname.

A method of assessing the quality of a network filter rule containing a wildcard includes determine an instantaneous entropy for the network filter rule based on string distances or instantaneous entropy between a plurality of wildcard matches for the network filter rule. The method further includes performing an action if the string distance or instantaneous entropy for the network filter rule crosses a threshold. The action being selected from disabling the network filter rule, flagging the rule as a low quality rule, generating a candidate rule based on a portion of the match having low entropy and a portion of the match having high entropy, or a combination thereof.

A method for provisioning a secure container for running an application includes routing traffic between the application and a secure container service over a virtual private network, and restricting the flow of traffic to or from the application other than traffic to or from the secure container service. The method further includes providing limited name resolution for the secure container with a customized domain name system server, establishing network proxy services to filter and route approved inbound traffic to the application, and establishing outbound network proxy services to filter and route approved outbound traffic from the application.

A method of configuring a network security device includes receiving a changed set of network rules to replace a current set of network rules; using a plurality of network traffic events to perform a first simulation of according to the current set of network rules and a second simulation according to the changed set of network rules; comparing the results of the first and second simulation to identify changes in network traffic allowed and denied between the current set and the changed set of network rules; displaying the changes in allowed and denied traffic for review of the changed set of network rules; receiving an instruction to implement the changed set of network rules based on the review; and filtering network traffic according to the changed set of network rules.


An information handling system performs a method for analyzing attacks against a networked system of information handling systems. The method includes detecting a threat indicator, representing the threat indicator in part by numerical parameters, normalizing the numerical parameters, calculating one or more measures of association between the threat indicator and other threat indicators, finding an association of the threat indicator with another threat indicator based upon the normalized numerical parameters, and assigning to the threat indicator a probability that a threat actor group caused the attack, wherein the threat actor group was assigned to the other threat indicator. In some embodiments, the normalizing may include transforming a distribution of the numerical parameters to a distribution with a standard deviation of 1 and a mean of 0. In some embodiments, the normalizing may include applying an empirical cumulative distribution function. In some embodiments, the one or more measures of association between the threat indicator and other threat indicators may include a Kendalls tau between the threat indicator and the other threat indicators, a covariance between the threat indicator and the other threat indicators; or a conditional entropy between the threat indicator and the other threat indicators.

A method includes selecting a first connection between a connection manager and a managed system, the first connection being associated with a first privilege level, communicating by the connection manager a first command to the managed system via the first connection, determining that a second command is executable on the managed system using a connection that is associated with a second privilege level, the second privilege level being a lower privilege level than the first privilege level, selecting a second connection between the connection manager and the managed system, the second connection being associated with the second privilege level, and communicating, by the connection manager, the second command to the managed system via the second connection.


Network traffic can be prevented from entering a protected network. An alert can be received that can be triggered by network traffic that matches at least one signature that is associated with undesired network behavior. A source of the network traffic that triggered the alert can be determined, and network traffic that originates from the source can be blocked. Blocking the source can include assigning a determination to the alert. It can then be determined whether network traffic from the source should be blocked based on the determination. The source can then be provided to the protected network such that a network device coupled to the protected network can be configured to block network traffic that originates from the source.
