Introduction / Opening


Keynote by Dr. Luca Allodi ( Eindhoven University of Technology)

Title: 'Tales from the Russian Underground: Infection Technologies and Economics’.

Cybercrime markets support the development and diffusion of new attack
technologies, vulnerability exploits, and malware. Whereas the revenue
streams of cyber attackers have been studied multiple times in the
literature, the economic aspects that enable and foster attack trading
have not been fully characterised yet: a few studies evaluated the
trading economics of illegal products such as drugs, weapons, and
pornography, yet no account currently exists on the underground
provision of cyber-attacks.
Importantly, the link between the emergence of an ‘exploit economy’
and the final risk of attack is only theorised, whereas a clear
quantification of this link is still entirely missing.

In this talk we provide a first empirical characterisation of these
aspects by infiltrating a prominent Russian cybercrime market, and
investigate market regulation, traded products, prices, and quantify
the relation between market activities and the realisation of an
attack in the wild.

The discussion will focus on market dynamics, exploit economics and
infection mechanisms, as well as on identifying future research venues
and open problems for the research community to address.
