Project Overview:
In this project ,We will complete a log analysis system.These logs are from HPFeeds and this system will achieve the
following four goals:

  • First of all we will extract objects which from thug event logs or thug file logs as like url,hostname,and malware
    to build the transmission graph.The relationships between malicious web pages and malware will be presented in the
    graph.
  • The second,we will provide a function is to observe the evolution of transmission graph.
  • The third,Because we are interested in which node is the more activity,we should design an algorithm to score
    activity in these nodes.
  • Finally,we could summarize the relationships to form several intentions,and should simplified the transmission graph
    into the intention grpah.
