This paper evaluates the potential use of hierarchal entropy analysis to detect covert timing channels and determine the best time-scale that reveals it. A data transmission simulator is implemented to generate a collection of overt and covert channels. The hierarchical entropy analysis approach is then utilized to detect the covert timing channels and identify the type-scale that provides the highest evidence that the underlying channel is covert. Hierarchical entropy divides the stream of… CONTINUE READING
