> /Refreshments will be served outside Room 339 at 3:45 p.m./
> I will cover a couple of my recent contributions to secure
> localization and distance bounding. Distance bounding protocols have
> been proposed for many security critical applications as a means of
> getting an upper bound on the physical distance to a communication
> partner. I will show some practical examples of problems where
> distance bounding can provide a unique solution to problems which are
> otherwise difficult to solve. One such example is in the context of
> implantable medical devices.
> One of the main obstacles for the wider deployment of distance
> bounding using electromagnetic (radio) waves, is the lack of hardware
> platforms that implement and support these protocols. I will show the
> first prototype system that demonstrates that radio distance bounding
> protocols can be implemented to match the strict requirements on
> processing time that these protocols require. Our system implements a
> radio that is able to receive, process and transmit signals in less
> than 1ns.
> Finally, I will present an area where I see a great potential for
> future work. In both sensing and actuation applications there is a
> semantic gap between the electrical system and the physical world. In
> an adversarial setting this gap can be exploited to make a system
> believe that, e.g., a switch was activated, when in fact it wasn’t. I
> see a plethora of research potential that share this problem in many
> different application domains, from biomedical sensors and implantable
> medical devices to factory control systems and security critical
> infrastructures. Some of these challenges can be solved using a
> traditional cryptography approach, and some are highly
> interdisciplinary and will best be handled in collaboration with
> experts from other fields.
> About the Speaker
> Kasper Rasmussen received an MSc in information technology and
> mathematics from the Technical University of Denmark in 2005. He got
> his Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science at ETH Zurich in
> 2011. While studying for his Ph.D., he worked on various security
> issues including secure time synchronization and secure localization
> with a particular focus on distance bounding. At the end of his Ph.D.
> studies, Kasper Rasmussen received the ETH Medal for an outstanding
> dissertation, an award given to 8% of finishing Ph.D. students. Kasper
> Rasmussen is currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at
> University of California, Irvine. His research interests include
> system security and security of wireless networks; security of
> embedded and cyber-physical systems, including smart grid nodes and
> hand held devices; protocol design and applied cryptography.
