[HIForum] [Kolloquium] Reminder for Invitation to the "UHH Informatik Kolloquium" Mo 16.01.2017, 17:15, D-125, Security and privacy threat analysis

This is a kind reminder for the invitation to the next "UHH Informatik Kolloquium"

-------------------------------------------------------------------
TOPIC: Security and privacy threat analysis: lessons learned and future directions
-------------------------------------------------------------------
SPEAKER:  
Prof. Dr. Riccardo Scandariato
Associate Professor, University of Gothenburg

DATE:
Monday, 16.01.2017, 17:15
PLACE:
Informatikum, Room D-125 

This talk will be held in English 

ABSTRACT:
Threat analysis is the cornerstone of security-by-design and privacy-by-design approaches for building more secure and privacy-friendly software systems. Threat analysis provides the means to assess a design model (e.g., a software architecture) and identify potential flaws early on in the software development life-cycle. This talk will overview a series of empirical studies that investigated the performance of state-of-the-practice threat analysis techniques. We will introduce the setup used for the empirical evaluation, present the observed results and discuss the limitations of the existing techniques. Moving forward, the talk will outline our present research directions in the field of threat analysis, with particular focus on a) improving the efficiency of said techniques and b) supporting automated analysis and refactoring.  

SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY:
Prof. Riccardo Scandariato received his PhD in Computer Science in 2004 from Politecnico di Torino, Italy. After several years at KU Leuven in Belgium, in 2014 he moved to Sweden and joined the department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Gothenburg.
Prof. Scandariato's main research interests are in the area of secure software engineering, with a particular focus on (i) privacy&security by design and (ii) empirical methods for security. He has published over 65 papers in the area of security and software engineering and regularly participates to the Program Committees of several top-rated conferences in the area of security and software engineering. He is also a passionate teacher and the coordinator of the Master programs in Software Engineering at the University of Gothenburg and the Chalmers University of Technology.

TOPIC: Security Monitoring - from intrusion detection to botnets -

-------------------------------------------------------------------


This talk will be held in English or German, according to preference



ABSTRACT:

Attacks on IT systems increasingly threaten modern societies. As there
will be always successful attacks, it is important to have security
monitoring as a second line of defense in place. Only when attacks are
detected early on and countermeasures are enforced immediately, the
resulting damage can be minimized. Starting with an overview on my current
research on security monitoring, the talk will put a special emphasis on
the monitoring of P2P-based botnets. Each Botnet can easily comprise up to
millions of infected machines and they threaten the Internet ecosystem.
They are involved in many cyber-crime activities, such as the theft of
banking credentials or Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Current botnets show a high level of self-organization and are highly
resilient against any takedown attempts. The talk will shine a light on
the botnet ecosystem and will present recent approaches to monitor them.



SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY:

Mathias Fischer is an assistant professor at the University Hamburg since
September 2016. Before that, he was an assistant professor at the
University Münster (2015-16), a Postdoc at the International Computer
Science Institute (ICSI)/ UC Berkeley (2014-15), and Postdoc at the Center
for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED) / TU Darmstadt from
(2012-14). His research interests encompass IT and network security,
resilient distributed systems, network monitoring, and botnets. Mathias
received a PhD in 2012 and a diploma in computer science in 2008, both
from TU Ilmenau.

TOPIC: Making Semantic Technology Intelligent

-------------------------------------------------------------------


This talk will be held in English 



ABSTRACT:

Semantic technology, once a niche academic endeavour, has evolved to the point of becoming an important asset for big organizations and enterprises. Yet, it remains unclear how to relate existing knowledge graphs to the vast amounts of text and structured data available online. In this talk, I will argue that this challenge calls for a move towards more cognitive approaches, including 1) better knowledge integration methods, 2) an increased reliance on linguistic knowledge, and 3) neural modeling. The talk will showcase several of our contributions towards this goal. These include our work on large multilingual knowledge graphs such as the Universal Wordnet, on integrated semantic resources such as FrameBase, and on large-scale common-sense resources such as WebChild.



SPEAKER BIOGRAPHY:

Gerard de Melo is joining Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science. He previously served as an Assistant Professor at Tsinghua University, Beijing, heading the Web Mining and Language Technology group. Over the years, he has published over 70 research papers, with Best Paper awards at CIKM 2010, ICGL 2008, and the NAACL 2015 Workshop on Vector Space Modeling, as well as an ACL 2014 Best Paper Honorable Mention, a Best Student Paper Award nomination at ESWC 2015, and the WWW 2011 Best Demonstration Award, among others. Prior to joining Tsinghua, de Melo had spent two years as a Visiting Scholar at UC Berkeley, working in the ICSI AI group. He received his doctoral degree at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
