Splunk recently released the 4.2 version of the Machine Learning Toolkit (MLTK), featuring a new algorithm—the probability density function. This algorithm is used to determine where values of a data set are expected to fall, based on historical values. It can help you identify anomalous values for a particular data set. The implementation of this algorithm in the MLTK means that we can now leverage machine learning (ML) techniques for identifying outliers in security-related data.
