We propose an intrusion prevention system called WHIPS that controls, entirely in kernel mode, the invocation of the critical system calls for the Windows OS security. WHIPS is implemented as a kernel driver, also called kernel module, by using kernel structures of the Windows OS. It is integrated without requiring changes to either the kernel data(More)
This paper presents FOXP (computer FOrensic eXPerience), an open source project to support network Live Digital Forensics (LDF), where the network nodes run a Windows NT family Operating System (OS). In particular, the FOXP architecture is composed of a set of software sensors, once for every network node, that log node activities and then send these logs(More)
In the juridical domain a huge amount of plain legislative acts have been produced since and before the advent of computers and word processors. The conversion of legacy and plain documents in a standard XML format implies great and numerous benefits. In order to accomplish this task, several automatic and semi-automatic tools have been developed in the(More)
Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) constitute one of the main issues for critical Internet services. The widespread availability and simplicity of automated stressing tools has also promoted the voluntary participation to extensive attacks against known websites. Today the most effective (D)DoS detection schemes are based on(More)
The urinary catecholamine metabolites, vanimandelic acid, homovanillic acid, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid, were extracted on a silica-bonded strong-anion-exchanger cartridge (SAX) and then injected into an high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) system by column switching. Chromatography was performed on a(More)
We investigate the clustering properties of loose groups in the Perseus–Pisces redshift Survey. Previous analyses based on CfA and SSRS surveys led to apparently contradictory results. We investigate the source of such discrepancies, finding satisfactory explanations for them. Furthermore, we find a definite signal of group clustering, whose amplitude AG(More)
