Domain generation algorithms (DGAs) automatically generate large numbers of domain names in DNS domain fluxing for the purpose of command-and-control (C&C) communication. DGAs are immune to static prevention methods like blacklisting and sinkholing. Detection of DGAs in a live stream of queries in a DNS server is referred to as inline detection. Most of the previous approaches in the literature on DGA detection either: (i) are based on small synthetic data sets for training, rather than data… CONTINUE READING
