1st European Workshop on Internet Early Warning and Network Intelligence (EWNI'10)


The Internet Malware Analysis System (InMAS) is a modular platform for distributed, large-scale monitoring of malware on the Internet. InMAS integrates diverse tools for malware collection (using honeypots) and malware analysis (mainly using dynamic analysis). All collected information is aggregated and accessible through an intuitive and easy-to-use web interface. In this paper, we provide an overview of the structure of InMAS and the various tools it integrates. We also introduce the web frontend that displays all information on different levels of abstraction, from a coarse-grained overview down to highly detailed information on demand.
