LIME , new and better machine-based malware analysis tool
Developed by researchers at the University of Washington, including TerraSwarm PI Carlos Guestrin, a new tool - Local Interpretable Model-Agnostic Explanations (LIME) addresses the shortcoming of deep learning models providing effective malware web page detectors but not providing information about why the sample is detected as malicious. Being able to answer the "why" question is critical for security researchers to be able to build better defenses in the future.
