SQL injection was initially introduced to the wild over 20 years ago and some of the defensive capabilities, the process building and maintaining them, stayed obsolete and manual. In this presentation, I will show how Content Delivery Network (CDN) logs classified as SQL injection attacks can be used to refine and optimize security rules, improve detection of future attacks, and detect emerging attacks targeting new vulnerabilities.
The process used includes elements taken from Natural Language Processing (NLP) to analyze SQL injection payloads, clean and curate them, break them into keywords and find the best relation between them to be able to get new and valuable insights.
