MaMaDroid: Detecting Android malware by building Markov chains of behavioral models (extended version) (2019)
Journal Article
Onwuzurike, L., Mariconti, E., Andriotis, P., De Cristofaro, E., Ross, G., & Stringhini, G. (2019). MaMaDroid: Detecting Android malware by building Markov chains of behavioral models (extended version). ACM Transactions on Privacy and Security, 22(2), https://doi.org/10.1145/3313391

As Android has become increasingly popular, so has malware targeting it, thus motivating the research community to propose different detection techniques. However, the constant evolution of the Android ecosystem, and of malware itself, makes it hard...

Distributed consensus algorithm for events detection in cyber-physical systems (2019)
Journal Article
Li, S., Zhao, S., Yang, P., Andriotis, P., Xu, L., & Sun, Q. (2019). Distributed consensus algorithm for events detection in cyber-physical systems. IEEE Internet of Things, 6(2), 2299-2308. https://doi.org/10.1109/JIOT.2019.2906157

In the harsh environmental conditions of cyber-physical systems (CPSs), the consensus problem seems to be one of the central topics that affect the performance of consensus-based applications, such as events detection, estimation, tracking, blockchai...

Emotional bots: Content-based spammer detection on social media (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Andriotis, P., & Takasu, A. (2019). Emotional bots: Content-based spammer detection on social media. https://doi.org/10.1109/WIFS.2018.8630760

Recent research indicates that a considerable amount of content on social media is generated by automated accounts. The automata present sophisticated behavior – mimicking humans– aiming at evading traditional detection methods. In this paper, we...
