DLS in Cybersecurity

Mit der Distinguished Lecture Series in Cybersecurity kommen jedes Semester herausragende Experten aus Wissenschaft und Wirtschaft nach Darmstadt, um die vielfältigen Chancen und He­raus­for­de­rung­en im Bereich der IT-Sicherheit zu diskutieren.
Die Redner stellen in den Vorlesungen richtungsweisende Forschungsergebnisse verschiedener Disziplinen vor, fassen komplexe Themenbereiche zusammen und zeigen den momentanen Kenntnisstand ihres Forschungs- oder Arbeitsgebietes auf.
Die Vorträge sind öffentlich. Interessierte Besucher sind herzlich willkommen. 

Wann:
An ausgewählten Donnerstagen
jeweils von 16:15 - 17:15 Uhr
während der Vorlesungszeit

Wo:
TU Darmstadt
Piloty-Gebäude S2|02 Raum C 110
Hochschulstraße 10
64289 Darmstadt

Nach der Vorlesung gibt es Möglichkeit zum Austausch bei einem kleinen Buffet vor Ort.

DLS in Cybersecurity: Security as a Science - Are we making progress?

Paul van Oorschot, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada

19. Oktober 2017 von 16:15 – 17:15 Uhr

TU Darmstadt | Piloty-Gebäude S2|02 | Raum C 110 | Hochschulstraße 10 | Darmstadt

Abstract
Recent years have seen increasing calls to make security research more “scientific”. Who can argue with science being desirable? But what exactly do people mean when they suggest this, and what are they really seeking? There is little clarity on what a “Science of Security” would look like. We consider this question, in the context of historical science and more recent security research, offer observations and insights, and suggest where things might be improved.

DLS in Cybersecurity: Secure Deduplication - Models and Optimization

Colin Boyd, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norwegen

16. November 2017 von 16:15 – 17:15 Uhr

TU Darmstadt | Piloty-Gebäude S2|02 | Raum C 110 | Hochschulstraße 10 | Darmstadt

Abstract
Deduplication is a widely used mechanism in cloud storage systems which can greatly increase efficiency. The basic idea is to remove duplicate stored files, replacing copies with a pointer to a single version. Empirical evidence shows that deduplication can be extremely effective in reducing both storage requirements and bandwidth used for uploading. However, deduplication also introduces severe challenges to security. There is an inherent conflict between the use of deduplication and the desire of users to encrypt their files prior to uploading. Even if this problem can be solved, client-side deduplication opens up a side channel which can reveal information to an adversary, as shown in 2010 by Harnik et al.

DLS in Cyberecurity: Grand Research Challenges for Cybersecurity of Critical Information and Infrastructures

Prof. Paulo Esteves-Veríssimo, University of Luxembourg

23. November 2017 von 16:15 – 17:15 Uhr

TU Darmstadt | Piloty-Gebäude S2|02 | Raum C 110 | Hochschulstraße 10 | Darmstadt

Abstract:
Computing and communications infrastructures have become commodities which societies largely depend on, transacting huge quantities of data and exhibiting pervasive interconnections, sometimes in critical conditions. However, the actual magnitude that security and dependability risks may assume, is often misperceived. The information society has been assuming risk behaviours, without the adequate protection. Many stakeholders, not only end-users but vendors, service providers, public administrations and - what may be surprising - even governments, seem to ignore those risks, in different ways.
