Title: Algorithmic Designs for Security Monitoring and Forensics
Speaker: Yong Guan, Associate Professor
Abstract: The field of Digital Forensics faces many challenges and difficult problems. We have seen that digital evidence may often be available for a very short period of time and involve large volumes of data that are found locally on a single electronic device or spread globally on the Internet. In many cybercrime cases, crime scenes are often found to co-exist in both cyberspace and physical worlds. In this talk, we will first discuss the challenges and research problems in distributed monitoring and building forensics-readiness for large-scale cyber systems. In the second part of the talk, we will go into some details about our algorithmic designs that are aggregatable, low computation complexity, use small space, and process data-traffic in one-pass. At the end, we will discuss several interesting open problems and research directions in this area. Through this talk, we hope to stimulate interests and collaborations in the fields of information security and digital forensics.
