Human and Societal Aspects of Security and Privacy


Visible to the public  Graduate Summer School: Games and Contracts for Cyber-Physical Security
Jul 07, 2015 9:00 am - Jul 23, 2015 4:30 pm CDT

This summer school will provide a rare opportunity for researchers in mathematics, computer science, engineering, and related sciences to learn about recent research directions and future challenges in this area. Funding is available to support graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the early stages of their career, as well as more senior researchers interested in undertaking new research in this area. Encouraging the careers of women and minority mathematicians and scientists is an important component of IPAM's mission, and we welcome their applications.


Visible to the public Deploying the Security Behavior Observatory: An Infrastructure for Long-term Monitoring of Client Machines

Abstract: Much of the data researchers usually collect about users' privacy and security behavior comes from short-term studies and focuses on specific, narrow activities. We present a design architecture and deployment of the Security Behavior Observatory (SBO), a client-server infrastructure designed to collect a wide array of data on user and computer security- and privacy-related behavior from a panel of hundreds of participants over several years. The SBO infrastructure had to be carefully designed to fulfill several requirements.
