Update (1/1/2017): I will not be updating this page and instead will make all updates to this page: The Definitive Security Data Science and Machine Learning Guide (see Machine Learning and Security Papers section).

Over the past several years I have collected and read many security research papers/slides and have started a small catalog of sorts. The topics of these papers range from intrusion detection, anomaly detection, machine learning/data mining, Internet scale data collection, malware analysis, and intrusion/breach reports. I figured this collection might useful to others. All links lead to PDFs hosted here.

I hope to clean this up (add author info, date, and publication) when I get some more time as well as adding some detailed notes I have on the various features, models, algorithms, and datasets used in many of these papers.

Here are some of my favorites (nice uses of machine learning, graph analytics, and/or anomaly detection to solve interesting security problems):

Here is the entire collection:

Intrusion Detection


Data Collection

Vulnerability Analysis/Reversing


Data Mining

Cyber Crime
