In this talk, Robert will be discussing some of the issues relating to indirect attribution of cybercrime, and how authorship analysis provides techniques to overcome issues of traceability on the internet. Further, he will discuss the state-of-the-art in authorship analysis, as applied to written documents. Finally, he will discuss some of the clues that are appearing within these techniques for attribution studies in non-written documents and how this relates to some other techniques in machine learning.
Dr. Robert Layton is a researcher at the Internet Commerce Security Laboratory (ICSL) at the University of Ballarat. His research investigates authorship analysis methods, particularly in unsupervised applications to cybercrime. He completed his PhD in 2011, investigating an application of these techniques to phishing webpages, in order to determine the size and scope of the operations behind them. He is now continuing his research at the ICSL, working with industry partners Westpac, Australian Federal Police and IBM. Current projects include the application of the techniques to alias-matching in IRC rooms and online reviews.
