This is a reminder for:
Title: CS Colloquium: Managing User-Level Compromises in Enterprise
Networks (Prof. Craig Shue from WPI)
Title: Managing User-Level Compromises in Enterprise Networks
Speaker: Prof. Craig Shue (WPI)
Organizations and enterprises are under constant attack and occasionally
their computer systems are compromised by an adversary. For example,
phishing and drive-by downloads attacks can be used to gain access into a
network that is otherwise fortified. Enterprises following best practices,
such as least-user privilege, can limit these attacks to a single
user-level account and prevent a system-wide or kernel-level compromise.
However, it can be challenging for an organization to manage even just a
user-level compromise within an organization.
In this talk, we will discuss ways to improve computer network security by
making it easier to understand an enterprise network's traffic and detect
activity that may be due to malware or a network intrusion. Unlike
traditional security systems, our approach uses software on enterprise
computers to communicate contextual information, allowing an access control
server to understand whether a given network request is the result of
known, trusted software or the result of a new, untrusted application. The
project is flexible, using software-defined networking hardware when
available, and leveraging end-host agents when it is not, to get deeper
insight into a network.
Dr. Craig Shue is an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science Department
at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Prior to joining the WPI faculty,
he was a Cyber Security Research Scientist at the Oak Ridge National
Laboratory. He earned Ph.D. in Computer Science at Indiana University. His
research interests are in networking, security, and systems.
