We present a method for detecting large-scale worm attacks using only end-host detectors. These detectors propagate and aggregate alerts to cooperating partners to detect large-scale distributed attacks in progress. The properties of the host-based detectors may in fact be relatively poor in isolation but when taken collectively result in a high-quality(More)
Intrusion attempts due to self-propagating code are becoming an increasingly urgent problem, in part due to the homogeneous makeup of the internet. Recent advances in anomalybased intrusion detection systems (IDSs) have made use of the quickly spreading nature of these attacks to identify them with high sensitivity and at low false positive (FP) rates.(More)
Parallel programs are more di cult to develop and reason about than sequential programs There are two broad classes of parallel programs programs whose speci cations describe ongoing behavior and interaction with an environment and programs whose speci cations describe the relation between initial and nal states This thesis presents a simple structured(More)
We describe a method to detect botnet command and control traffic and individual end-hosts. We introduce the notion of ”destination traffic atoms” which aggregate the destinations and services that are communicated with. We then compute the ”persistence”, which is a measure of temporal regularity and that we propose in this paper, for individual destination(More)
We design a content-centric privacy scheme for Information-Centric Networking (ICN). We enhance ICN's ability to support data confidentiality by introducing attribute-based encryption into ICN and making it specific to the data attributes. Our approach is unusual in that it preserves ICN's goal to decouple publishers and subscribers for greater data(More)
With the ever increasing number of connected devices and the over abundance of data generated by these devices, data privacy has become a critical concern in the Internet of Things (IoT). One promising privacy-preservation approach is Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE), a public key encryption scheme that enables fine-grained access control, scalable key(More)
As integrated services have become available to the desktop, users have embraced new modes of interaction, such as multimedia conferencing and collaborative computing. In this paper, we provide a survey of past and present research that has influenced this application area, and describe research directions for the future.
Motivated by the “clean-slate” opportunity of the evolving Smart Grid, we propose an Information Centric Networking (ICN) approach for the home communications fabric and create an ICN-based secure publish-subscribe system to support home energy management. We design a secure group communication protocol with efficient key management specifically embedded in(More)
