Title: Computer Security (10000 ft view)
Prof. Adwait Nadkarni, Dept. of CSE, William & Mary
Date & Time: December 22, 2017 12:00
Venue: Conference Room, 01st Floor, C Block, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Building
Computer security is a growing field, and security competence is a rare and valuable skill. In this talk, I will provide a high level view of computer security. I will start by describing the fundamental challenges in designing secure systems. Following this, I will briefly describe the motivation behind the diverse research problems within computer security (e.g., network security, OS security), through simple but historically accurate examples. Finally, I will describe my own research interests, as well as past and ongoing research. In summary, this talk will provide students with a 10000 ft view of computer security: its history, challenges, and areas of critical importance.
