Protecting Data Security and Privacy in Untrusted Servers

Robert Deng
Singapore Management University

Learn More


Outsourcing data to third-party cloud servers brings many benefits to individuals and organizations; however, software and hardware platforms in the cloud are not under direct control of data owners and may subject to various attacks. Storing electronic medical records in a patient’s mobile device allows ubiquitous access of such records, especially in emergency situations; however, mobile devices could be lost or stolen.

In this talk, we present a cryptographic and system integrated approach to protecting data security and privacy in “untrusted servers”. In particular, we introduce a framework for scalable access control of encrypted data and for secure computation over encrypted data. We provide an overview of the underlying techniques, a prototype implementation, and performance evaluation.

BBDS: A Privacy-preserving Blockchain-Based Data Sharing System

Jin Li
Guangzhou University

Learn More


Data sharing has been popular nowadays for data analysis with technologies such as machine learning. An important issue to be concerned is how to aggregate a large amount of data that is highly associated with the specified analysis task. To address this, a traditional method is that data analyst turns to data owner for its permission to leverage its data and then launches analysis tasks over the aggregated data. However, the privacy of data owner is weakly guaranteed since data owner lost the control of its data, whose behaviour is unpredictable. To guarantee the privacy of data owner while enabling the analysis of its dataset, homomorphic encryption (HE) scheme is adopted in this paper. But the straightforward method cannot work in such a setting for the security of fairness and resource constrained setting. To address the challenges, we propose a new solution based on blockchain to control the utilization of data and the privacy can be achieved with such a solution. Furthermore, an outsourcing method is proposed to verify whether the returned result is honestly computed or not.

Post-Quantum Lattice-Based Public-Key Cryptography Balancing Security and Performance

Ron Steinfeld
Monash University

Learn More


Lattice-based cryptography is currently one of the most promising candidate approaches for public-key cryptography with conjectured security against quantum computing attacks (also known as `post-quantum' cryptography). Until recently, there were essentially two (by now well known) approaches to lattice-based cryptography, at opposite ends of the security-risk versus performance tradeoff scale: a low-risk, low-performance approach based on the Learning with Errors (LWE) problem, and a high-risk, high-performance approach based on the Polynomial-LWE problem (or the related Ring-LWE problem).

In this talk, we discuss a recently developed third approach to lattice-based cryptography based on the Middle-Product LWE (MP-LWE) problem, offering an intermediate balance between security-risk and performance. We discuss the underlying security foundations, design, implementation and state of the art parameters for practical cryptosystems based on this approach.

Post-Quantum Cryptography, Blockchains and Cryptocurrencies

Huaxiong Wang
Nanyang Technological University

Learn More


The security of most public-key cryptographic schemes relies on computational assumptions such as the factorization and discrete logarithm problems. However, Shor showed in 1994 that both these problems are easy to solve with a quantum computer. Almost all current public-key schemes would become completely insecure if quantum computers become a practical reality. Although the realization of such computers is complicated and hard to predict, experts in the field believe that it is merely an engineering challenge. Some even predict sufficiently large quantum computers to break essentially all currently used public key schemes within the next 20 years or so. Post-quantum cryptography is a new research field to design and analyse cryptographic schemes that are secure against quantum attacks. In this talk, we will give a brief overview on post-quantum cryptograph and its connections with blockchain and cryptocurrencies, focusing on a newly proposed quantum-safe cryptocurrency blackchain platform, Abelian (ABE).

Biography: Huaxiong Wang received a PhD in Mathematics from University of Haifa, Israel in 1996 and a PhD in Computer Science from University of Wollongong, Australia in 2001.

Data-Driven Cyber Security to Counterfeit Malicious Attacks

Yang Xiang
Swinburne University of Technology

Learn More


Cyber security has become one of the top priorities in the research and development agenda globally today. At the same time, data is more prevalent and pertinent than ever before. Cyberspace generates 2.5 quintillion (1018) bytes of data per day. Threat data is no exception: with continuously growing cybercriminal activities contributing to its abundance. New and innovative cyber security technologies that can effectively address this pressing danger are critically needed.

Data-driven approaches to solve security problems have been increasingly adopted by the cybersecurity research community. They have two areas of focus: detection and prediction of security events. Early research focuses primarily on detection of various kinds of security events, such as cyber-attacks, vulnerabilities, and data breaches. More recently, there have been efforts to predict or forecast cyber security events, such as predicting attackers’ next move, estimating attacks’ ultimate goal, intrusion prediction, and security situation forecasting. Data and its analytic methods are the key tools to underpin all of these activities.

New methods and tools, consequently, must follow up in order to adapt to this emerging security paradigm. In this talk, we will discuss the concept of Data-Driven Cyber Security and how the data-driven methodology can be used to address the security and privacy problems in cyberspace. Addressing the challenges will allow us to deliver solutions that can safeguard one of the central and critically important aspects of all of our lives from attacks that are real, ongoing and damaging. A few cases on software vulnerability discovery by machine learning, malicious network traffic detection, and social network data analytics will be presented.

Detecting Bad Crypto Implementations and Correcting Random Oracles

Moti Yung
Columbia University and Google

Learn More


The study of Cryptosystems that are under subversion by the implementers themselves led to attacks (called Kleptographic attacks) on black-box cryptosystems. These type of attacks first introduced theoretically, have been implemented in the real, and are threatening the security of systems. In recent years we have investigated how to build systems, relying on minimal trusted component so as to clip the power of such attacks (we called it Cliptography). I will review methods for correcting implementations against unstructured hash functions (modeled as random oracles) based on some public randomness, and will mention black-box detection strategies against cryptosystems implemented adversarially.

Biography: Moti Yung is a Security and Privacy Scientist with a main interest in Cryptography: its Theory and its Real life Applications. Currently he is with Google. He graduated from Columbia University in 1988 and is an adjunct senior research faculty at Columbia till today.
