"Malicious Activity and Network Reputation: Studying Network Activity and Block Listing in the ARIN Region"Manish Karir and Kyle Creyts, Merit Network
Reputation Block Lists are maintained by security companies and network operators to list networks that have been the source of malicious activity and that should thus be blocked or otherwise treated specially. This presentation describes a research project to analyze the distribution of hosts on these lists to determine if there are some common traits that can characterize malicious activity originating from a country, ASN, or prefix. The presentation will include findings of the study and some advice on the effective use of RBLs.
