Title:DNS and Data Exfiltration Detection
Authors:Sung, Nicole
Date Issued:Nov 2021
Publisher:University of Hawaiʻi — West Oʻahu
Abstract:Undetected data exfiltration is a common occurrence

There is little research into detecting the data as it is traveling from target to attacker

Most research is on the prevention of exploitation.

Fundamental internet protocols are being used for exfiltration

DNS is the internet address book, so almost all internet-connected devices accept it

Most tunnels are encrypted to bypass packet inspection

By understanding how these protocols work, IDS rules can be developed to alert when traffic is abnormal
