We seek to determine a user's high-level intentions by extracting and relating properties of the GUI as a user interacts with it. We have created a system that automatically generates information about user activity in a programmatic way, monitoring a Windows computer in real time with a low performance overhead. The information generated is well structured for consumption by security tools, and to inform policy. Deployed across an organization, this system has the potential to effectively white-list broad categories of user work-flows, in order to easily alert about any concerning anomalous behavior which would warrant further investigation.
