Inaugural IEEE Cybersecurity Development Conference Convenes Academic and Industry Experts

IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced its program for the first IEEE Cybersecurity Development Conference (IEEE SecDev 2016) to be held 3-4 November at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Sponsored and supported by the IEEE Cybersecurity Initiative and the IEEE Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, IEEE SecDev brings together different corners of the academic and business worlds’ engineering and security communities to share the latest research, technical developments, and lessons learned from the front lines of security.

Developers, researchers, and practitioners will discuss design approaches and tools for building in security at the forefront of the design and development process. IEEE SecDev also invites students to participate in the dialogue to better understand the challenges of implementing security in the design of secure systems – helping them become innovators and contributors to cybersecurity advancement.

“While there is much progress being made in the academic security research community, the results often don’t reach the engineering and development communities as quickly or as broadly as needed to improve overall cybersecurity,” said Rob Cunningham, general chair for SecDev 2016, who also leads the IEEE Cybersecurity Initiative. “In response, the IEEE Cybersecurity Initiative launched SecDev to expand interactions and bridge the gap between cybersecurity research and the development community.”

Speaker presentations on 3 Nov. include:

  • Lorrie Faith Cranor, U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s Chief Technologist and Carnegie Mellon University Professor: “Adventures in Usable Privacy and Security: From Empirical Studies to Public Policy”
  • Jonathan Katz, Director, Maryland Cybersecurity Center and University of Maryland Professor: “How to Think about Cryptography: Common Crypto Flaws and How to Avoid Them”
  • Jeremy Epstein, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Information Innovation Office Program Manager: “Developing Automated Analysis Tools for Space/Time Sidechannel Detection”

The first day’s afternoon session will focus on solutions to commonly encountered security problems. Exploring design and implementation of security, IEEE SecDev members will examine the state of software and hardware security to determine best industry practices and identify known good secure-design patterns. Panel discussions will address innovations in cybersecurity and secure system design, as well as a number of “lightning talks” to present position papers in five-minute sessions.

Sessions on 4 Nov. will cover more recent research into cybersecurity topics and issues, including tutorials on a mix of tools representing the core secure-development principles used in industry and academia today. Additional tutorials will cover the state of the art in random testing and fuzzing (e.g., Google’s libfuzzer), static analysis – both industrial (Coverity) and academic (DroidSafe6), as well as dynamic analysis (MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory’s PANDA framework7).

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
