Securing Cyber-Physical Systems by Bridging the Gap between Control and Information Security

Advances in embedded computers and networks that monitor and control physical systems are improving our productivity, sustainability, and well-being, but they also introduce the security risks associated with information technology. To fully understand the risks of these technologies, and to develop resilient security and privacy mechanisms in cyber-physical systems, we need concepts from control as well as information security. In the last decade, the control community has proposed fundamental advances in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) security; in parallel, the computer security community has also achieved significant advances in practical implementation aspects for CPS security and privacy. While both of these fields have made significant progress independently, there is still a large language and conceptual barrier between the two fields, and as a result, computer security experts have developed a parallel and independent research agenda from control theory researchers. In order to design future CPS security and privacy mechanisms, the two communities need to come closer together and leverage the insights that each has developed. In this talk I will discuss our efforts to facilitate the integration of these two communities by leveraging the physical properties of the system under control for designing novel security and privacy algorithms, tools, and metrics for CPS.

Binary Code Analysis on OS Kernels: Techniques and Applications

Being a basic means for the understanding of program logics, binary code analysis has been used in many security applications such as malware analysis, vulnerability discovery, protocol reverse engineering, and forensic analysis. However, tons of efforts in binary code analysis have been focusing on analyzing the user level software, with significant less attention on kernel binary.

In this talk, Dr. Lin would like to talk about a line of their recent efforts of how to use dynamic binary code analysis on OS kernels to solve a unique problem in virtualization, namely the semantic gap problem. This problem exists because at the hypervisor layer, the view is too low level, and there is no semantic abstraction such as files, APIs and system calls. Therefore, hypervisor layer programmers often have to manually bridge the semantic gap while developing introspection software. Through dynamic binary code analysis, Dr. Lin will talk about how to automatically bridge the semantic gap with a number of program analysis techniques from the hypervisor layer, and demonstrate a set of new applications, such as using the native command for guest-OS introspection, and automated guest-OS management.

Zhiqiang Lin CAREER award

Dr. Zhiqiang Lin is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas.

He earned his PhD from Computer Science Department at Purdue University in 2011. His primary research interests are systems and software security, with an emphasis on developing program analysis techniques and applying them to secure both application programs including mobile apps and the underlying system software such as Operating Systems and hypervisors. Dr. Lin is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award and the AFOSR Young Investigator Award.
