End-to-end text recognition with convolutional neural networks
TLDR
This paper combines the representational power of large, multilayer neural networks together with recent developments in unsupervised feature learning, which allows them to use a common framework to train highly-accurate text detector and character recognizer modules. Expand
Effective Attacks and Provable Defenses for Website Fingerprinting
TLDR
This paper shows how simulatable, deterministic defenses can be provably private, and shows that bandwidth overhead optimality can be achieved for these defenses by using a supersequence over anonymity sets of packet sequences. Expand
Deep learning with COTS HPC systems
TLDR
This paper presents technical details and results from their own system based on Commodity Off-The-Shelf High Performance Computing (COTS HPC) technology: a cluster of GPU servers with Infiniband interconnects and MPI, and shows that it can scale to networks with over 11 billion parameters using just 16 machines.

Convolutional Neural Networks over Tree Structures for Programming Language Processing
TLDR
A novel tree-based convolutional neural network (TBCNN) is proposed for programming language processing, in which a convolution kernel is designed over programs' abstract syntax trees to capture structural information. Expand
Improved website fingerprinting on Tor
TLDR
New website fingerprinting techniques that achieve a higher classification accuracy on Tor than previous works are proposed and a new set of metrics to describe the similarity between two traffic instances are proposed, derived from observations on how a site is loaded. Expand
PMRD: plant microRNA database
TLDR
The plant miRNA database (PMRD) integrates available plant miRNAs data deposited in public databases, gleaned from the recent literature, and data generated in-house, and contains sequence information, secondary structure, target genes, expression profiles and a genome browser. Expand
Walkie-Talkie: An Efficient Defense Against Passive Website Fingerprinting Attacks
TLDR
Walkie-Talkie is proposed, an effective and efficient WF defense that cannot be defeated by any website fingerprinting attack, even hypothetical advanced attacks that use site link information, page visit rates, and intercell timing. Expand
A Systematic Approach to Developing and Evaluating Website Fingerprinting Defenses
TLDR
Tamaraw is presented, a new defense that achieves a better security/bandwidth trade-off than any previously proposed defense and provides an "existence proof" for efficient, secure defenses. Expand
Automatic Gait Optimization with Gaussian Process Regression
TLDR
A Bayesian approach based on Gaussian process regression that addresses all three drawbacks of local optimization procedures, using a global search strategy based on a posterior model inferred from all of the individual noisy evaluations. Expand
On Realistically Attacking Tor with Website Fingerprinting
TLDR
The first website fingerprinting system that can operate directly on packet sequences collected in the wild is built, and several classification-based techniques are demonstrated that allow us to split full packet sequences effectively into sequences corresponding to a single page each. Expand
