Future attack-detection mechanisms must be able to reliably detect, predict, and understandably explain previously unknown threats. This in particular requires to cope with common and next-generation attacks and evasion techniques (like obfuscation, polymorphism, or stealth low-volume attacks). The number of false alarms (false positives) should be low: in cases where false alarms are raised frequently, users or system administrators might start to ignore warnings or - even worse - to disable detection solutions permanently. At the same time, modern detection and prevention mechanisms must not miss critical incidents. Attack detection methods should be complemented by suitable defensive technologies, ideally selected autonomously by the system under attack, especially in the realm of cyber warfare. In the last years, this research area has particularly focused on the detection of and analysis of modern malware, on the prevention and attribution of DDoS attacks, and on the identification and mitigation of novel system vulnerabilities.
