Members of Trusted CI are presenting the Results of the Trusted CI Annual Challenge on Software, on Monday February 28th at 1pm (Eastern). Note the time is later than previous webinars.

Please register here.

This webinar presents the results of Trusted CI's 2021 examination of the state of software assurance in scientific computing, and also gives an overview of the contents of its recently released Guide to Securing Scientific Software (GS3), aimed at helping developers of software used in scientific computing improve the security of that software.

Prof. Barton Miller is the Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor and Amar & Belinder Sohi Professor in computer science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prof. Miller founded the field of fuzz random testing, which is foundational to computer security and software testing. In addition, he founded (with his then-student Prof. Jeffrey Hollingsworth) the field of dynamic binary instrumentation, which is a widely used, critical technology for cyberforensics. Prof. Miller advises the Department of Defense on computer security issues though his position at the Institute for Defense Analysis and was on the Los Alamos National Laboratory Computing, Communications and Networking Division Review Committee and the US Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force (Chicago Area). He is currently an advisor to the Wisconsin Security Research Council. Prof. Miller is a fellow of the ACM.

Dr. Sean Peisert leads applied research and development in computer security at the Berkeley Lab and UC Davis. He is also chief cybersecurity strategist for CENIC; co-lead of Trusted CI, the NSF Cybersecurity Center of Excellence; editor-in-chief of IEEE Security & Privacy; a member of the Distinguished Expert Review Panel for the NSA Annual Best Scientific Cybersecurity Paper Competition; a member of the DARPA Information Science and Technology (ISAT) Study Group; an ACSA Senior Fellow; past chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Security & Privacy' and is a steering committee member and past general chair of the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy ("Oakland").
