Colloquium: Computer Security and Privacy for Emerging Technologies
My approach to computer security involves formulating the right security problem to work on, addressing design-level issues by constructing strong defenses at the right layer of abstraction, and challenging common assumptions to understand realistic threats. In this talk, I will give several examples of my approach, focusing on emerging technologies that span the digital-to-physical interface. I will cover technical results at various level of abstraction, including design-level vulnerabilities of smart homes, security-oriented improvements to the OAuth network protocol, and optimization-based physical attacks on deep learning models. Finally, I will share my vision of the future of security and privacy research in emerging technologies.
