Abstract

See full text

A data classification system identifies and processes malicious data that may be present in a received data stream. The system includes at least two stages, and a data flow module. The data flow module derives, from an input data stream, a first processed data stream that is transmitted to the first processing stage. The first processing stage derives, from the first processed data stream, a second processed data stream that is transmitted to the second processing stage. The first and second processing stages optionally derive meta data from the data they receive.
