I have several classes today but otherwise will be working to finish preparing for the UROC symposium tomorrow. I have been working on the SQL injection IDS project since last November and have come a long way since that point. The initial paper will serve as a guide for future work and is purposely formatted as a white paper instead of a conference paper. As a lot of text does not communicate efficiently in a symposium environment, much of my work today involves completely explanatory illustrations for anomaly models and basic pattern classification techniques, such as stemming a parse tree for basic SQL queries. Tomorrow is my first public research presentation so I am pretty excited about it. I will definitely have to work on fine-tuning my elevator talks so that I will be ready to explain the work to various people.
