What makes a great cyber science fair project? The SoS-VO has a node for that...
This that time of the year again. No, not Mother's Day. Yes, I have a wonderful mother that every year, I don't visit because I'm traveling for the science fair. So from Phoenix, Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Onto the trip. I'm back in Phoenix Arizona. Yay! We're back! So for the first time readers. This is the fifth (it's...

  • Abstract: Abstract--The past ten years has seen increasing calls to make security research more "scientific". On the surface, most agree that this is desirable, given universal recognition of "science" as a positive force. However, we find that there is little clarity on what "scientific" means in the... more
  • Abstract: Given the centralized architecture of cloud computing, there is a genuine concern about its ability to adequately cope with the demands of connecting devices which are sharply increasing in number and capacity. This has led to the emergence of edge computing technologies, including but not limited... more
  • Abstract: With a growing demand of concurrent software to exploit multi-core hardware capability, concurrency vulnerabilities have become an inevitable threat to the security of today's IT industry. Existing concurrent program detection schemes focus mainly on detecting concurrency errors such as data races... more
  • Abstract: Currently, usable security and web accessibility design principles exist separately. Although literature at the intersect of accessibility and security is developing, it is limited in its understanding of how users with vision loss operate the web securely. In this paper, we propose heuristics that... more
  • Abstract: Traditional anti-virus technologies have failed to keep pace with proliferation of malware due to slow process of their signatures and heuristics updates. Similarly, there are limitations of time and resources in order to perform manual analysis on each malware. There is a need to learn from this... more
