Description:

 

Abstract:

As our world continues to become more interconnected through the Internet, cybersecurity incidents are correspondingly increasing in number, severity, and complexity, with consequences in the digital and physical realm. Existing mechanisms in responding to these incidents have three problems: they promote a security monoculture, are too centralized, and are too slow.

In this talk, I will present my contributions in malicious activity detection and cybersecurity data sharing, showing how one's network security strongly benefits from a combination of personalized, local detection, coupled with the controlled exchange of previously-private network information with collaborators.
