Title: Security and Privacy in the Cyber-physical World
Location: CSIE R101
Speaker: Prof.Ning Zhang,Washington University in St. Louis
Host: Prof. Hsu-Chun Hsiao
As computing advances are making profound changes in our society, they also expose us to new security threats. While the impact of cyber attacks was often in our digital life in the past, our cyber world is increasingly intertwined with the physical world. Compromised safety-critical systems or critical infrastructures can have life-and-death implications. In this talk, I will highlight two research directions within my research group. On the system security front, I will discuss our efforts to ensure system availability on safety-critical embedded systems. On the cyber-physical security front, I will present our recent work on AI and IoT security. Finally, I will discuss our ongoing work and future directions.
Dr. Ning Zhang leads the Computer Security and Privacy Laboratory (CSPL) at Washington University in St. Louis. Before joining Washington University, he was previously a principal cyber engineer/researcher and technical lead at the industry from 2007 to 2018. Ning's research focus is system security and cyber-physical security. Ning received his PhD degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and MS/BS from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst.
