Kapravelos’ Research Focuses on Website Behavior and Security

Dr. Alexandros Kapravelos, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at NC State University, has been awarded $60,000 by the Center for Accelerated Real Time Analytics (CARTA) – NC State Research Site to support his research proposal entitled “Real-time Cyber Knowledge Platform for Web Threats, CARTA Core Project.”


The award runs from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2021. 


Abstract – The web evolves continuously and we currently lack the tools to monitor how it is changing and how this affects the security of internet users. Characterizing website behavior will help both users and organizations to understand the website they visit/operate. Our goal in this project is to identify at real-time websites that their behavior diverges from their expected behavior and thus indicate that they have been compromised. We are going to develop a publicly available system that performs continuous website behavior analysis and reports of changes in behavior that occur over time.
