2019 NSF Cybersecurity Summit Student CFP is open

We are happy to announce the 2019 NSF Cybersecurity Summit Student call for participation is open! We have decided to announce it early to give professors more time to submit nominations and for students to apply. Undergraduate and graduate students may apply, no specific major or course of study required, as long as the student is interested in learning and applying cybersecurity innovations to scientific endeavors.

Selected students will be given invitations to attend the Summit and the opportunity for reimbursement of travel expenses.

To read more about who is eligible and how to apply, see our page here: https://trustedci.org/summit2019/students

The Summit is Oct 15-17 in San Diego, CA.

Update: The talk has been posted to YouTube. The slides have been archived.

Von Welch will be presenting the talk, "Cybersecurity to Enable Science: Hindsight & Vision from the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence," at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications on Thursday, May 30th at 10am Central.

Read the full event details here. We are streaming the presentation online if you are not able to attend in person.
How can cybersecurity play an enabling role in scientific research? This talk describes the first five years of experience from NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, its vision for the next five, and its take on how cybersecurity supports scientific integrity, reproducibility, and productivity.
Speaker Bio: Von Welch has been enabling scientific research through cybersecurity for over twenty years. He serves as the Director and PI for the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (Trusted CI) and for the recently announced NSF-funded Research Security Operations Center (ResearchSOC). At Indiana University he is the Director of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR) and an Associate Director for the IU Pervasive Technology Institute.

CCoE Webinar May 20th at 11am ET: Deployable Internet Routing Security

Amir Herzberg is presenting the talk "Deployable Internet Routing Security" on Monday May 20th at 11am (Eastern).

Note: we moved the webinar up one week to avoid the Memorial Day holiday.

Please register here. Check spam/junk folder for registration confirmation email.
Internet routing is woefully insecure - in spite of many attacks and extensive awareness and efforts. But, finally, there is progress - and even some deployable defenses, based on free open-source software - including some that we develop in a CICI NSF project, whose goal is to get Internet Routing Security deployed in educational and research networks. These tools may help against different attacks - including Denial of Service, a significant problem for campuses and for scientific collaboration.

In this webinar, we will explain the challenges of Internet Routing Security, and the main tools - already deployable, in-progress, and briefly mention some less likely to be deployed. We will also discuss our directions, which include development of tools as well as pilot deployment with UConn and Connecticut Education Network. We hope this may help some of you to make progress in improving the security and reliability of networks, and establish cooperation with us as we proceeds with our project. 
Speaker bio:

Amir Herzberg's is the Comcast professor for Cybersecurity Innovation in the department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Connecticut. His research areas include: network security (esp. routing/DNS/transport, Denial-of-Service, Web), privacy and anonymity, applied cryptography, usable security, security for cyber-physical systems and social, economic and legal aspects of security.

Dr. Herzberg earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science in 1991 from the Technion in Israel.  From 1991 to 1995, he worked at the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, where he was a research staff member and the manager of the Network Security research group.  From 1996 to 2000, Dr. Herzberg was the Manager of E-Business and Security Technologies at the IBM Haifa Research Lab.  From 2002 to 2017, he was a professor in Bar Ilan University (Israel).

Dr. Herzberg is the author of more than 150 research papers, five book chapters, and 24 patents. Dr. Herzberg has served on technical program committees of over 50 conferences, delivered keynote and plenary addresses at ten conferences,  organized multiple professional events, and has been TPC chair of IEEE CNS’19, editor of PoPETS (2014-) and ACM TISSEC (2011-14), and area chair of CNS (2013-17). Dr. Herzberg is recipient of the Internet Society's Applied Networking Research award, 2017.
