We describe a novel deep packet inspection technique that provides precise quantitative measures for detecting data exfiltration. We point out the fundamental differences between our data leak detection and the conventional intrusion detection systems (IDS). The key to our solution is a powerful sampling algorithm and a sophisticated local alignment algorithm. Our sampling method has an unique comparable property – preserving the similarity of two input sequences during sampling. We have paralleled our new dynamic programming prototype on general-purpose graphics processing units to accelerate our detection system. We have extensively evaluated the scalability and security of our detection against several large datasets under real world data leak scenarios. Our algorithmic contributions are useful beyond the specific data leak detection problem.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
