Mobile phones are increasingly equipped with a range of highly responsive sensors. From cameras and GPS receivers to three-axis accelerometers, applications running on these devices are able to experience rich interactions with their environment. Unfortunately, some applications may be able to use such sensors to monitor their surroundings in unintended(More)
Garbled circuits provide a powerful tool for jointly evaluating functions while preserving the privacy of each user’s inputs. While recent research has made the use of this primitive more practical, such solutions generally assume that participants are symmetrically provisioned with massive computing resources. In reality, most people on the planet only(More)
Garbled circuits offer a powerful primitive for computation on a user's personal data while keeping that data private. Despite recent improvements, constructing and evaluating circuits of any useful size remains expensive on the limited hardware resources of a smartphone, the primary computational device available to most users around the world. In this(More)
Ransomware is a growing threat that encrypts auser's files and holds the decryption key until a ransom ispaid by the victim. This type of malware is responsible fortens of millions of dollars in extortion annually. Worse still, developing new variants is trivial, facilitating the evasion of manyantivirus and intrusion detection systems. In this work, we(More)
Transglutaminases (EC 2.3.2.13) catalyze an acyl-transfer reaction between peptide-bound glutamine residues and primary amines, including the epsilon-amino group of lysine residues in protein. Purified human erythrocyte transglutaminase was found to have another activity, i.e., GTP hydrolysis. Treatment of the enzyme with iodoacetamide, a cysteine-directed(More)
OAuth 2.0 provides an open framework for the authorization of users across the web. While the standard enumerates mandatory security protections for a variety of attacks, many embodiments of this standard allow these protections to be optionally implemented. In this paper, we analyze the extent to which one particularly dangerous vulnerability, Cross Site(More)
Recent developments in secure computation have led to significant improvementsin efficiency and functionality. These efforts created compilers that form thebackbone of practical secure computation research. Unfortunately, many of theartifacts that are being used to demonstrate new research for secure computationare incomplete, incorrect, or unstable,(More)
The high price of incoming international calls is a common method of subsidizing telephony infrastructure in the developing world. Accordingly, international telephone system interconnects are regulated to ensure call quality and accurate billing. High call tariffs create a strong incentive to evade such interconnects and deliver costly international calls(More)
