"The Data and Application Security and Privacy (DASPY) Challenge "

Monday October 31, 2011 04:00 PM

(Visitor parking instructions)

This talk is part of the Triangle Computer Science Distinguished Lecturer Series



This talk will begin by identifying the major challenges in cyber security, expressed in a nutshell as “How can we be secure while being secure?”  I will argue that this is the correct goal for us to pursue and that we cannot achieve this goal without bringing in application and technology context.  I will then discuss the Policy-Enforcement-Implementation (PEI) paradigm to enable us to address this challenge by divide-and-conquer, and will illustrate this paradigm in a couple of contexts.
