Charles Clancy Virginia Tech Software security on embedded systems will be a mostly solved problem as 5G homogenizes computational resources and we can apply best practices from IT world to the OT world; the security frontier then becomes the sensors, actuators, and control logic that sit on top of this infrastructure and realize complex cyber-physical systems.

The machine learning renaissance is significantly improving the performance of sensor signal processing and control algorithms, but there is no way to train these systems under all adversarial inputs in order to build provably secure systems. Thus the grand challenge for the future of IoT/CPS security becomes securing these complex autonomous systems in an era of black-box deep learning AI.

Susan Squires University of North Texas It is only through the combination of the social and technical disciplines that will give us new insights on how security decisions are made within the group context leading us to novel security solutions. As an anthropologist with a knowledge of technology and the social sciences, I have tried to provide a bridge linking technology to human factors both on the individual and group levels. The collaboration of the social and technical is not easy but has great potential if realized. Susan position paper Susan bio
Patrick Schaumont Virginia Tech I have worked for several years on side-channel analysis and fault injection. I have also worked on hardware-software codesign and cryptographic engineering for embedded systems. My perspective is on the secure composition problem in embedded systems. While we understand very well how to build larger systems from components (modules, processors, memories, ..), we don’t understand yet how to extrapolate security properties from smaller modules to the embedded system.

Hassan Salmani Howard University My research background is on hardware security and trust and hardware Trojans (HTs) in specific. HTs have imposed significant threats on electronic devices. Majority of research has been focused on detecting and preventing HTs whose implementation and operation are limited into one integrated circuit. However, Internet of Things (IoT) enable attackers to gain remote access to electronic devices (embedded systems) and load malicious firmware. Such capability makes it possible to realize software-controlled HTs whose implementation may not leave considerable footprints but their impact can be widespread. Therefore, HTs in IoT demand specific attention. Hassan position paper Hassan bio
Peter Harsha CRA I’m Director of Government Affairs for the Computing Research Association (the parent organization of CCC), so I spend a lot of time thinking about the intersection of computing research and policy. I’d bring an understanding of the current policy environment and a hope to understand what a research agenda in embedded security looks like and how to convey that best to policymakers. no position paper or bio
Dong Wei Siemens Corporate Technology Purdue Enterprise Reference Architecture (PERA) has been around for almost 30 years. The layered-architecture includes devices and software components from Level 0 to Level 4. There is a clear boundary between IT and OT. Nowadays, most manufactories just place security device (firewall, VPN, etc.) at the entrance point of the plant floor network, assuming that 1) plant floor networks are static after the production line is placed into production; 2) cyberattacks only come from devices external to the plant floor network. However, the rapid convergence between IT and OT has been observed in the manufacturing industry, more and more devices in IT and OT exchange data directly. Therefore, it is obvious that the layer-architecture will be replaced by a meshed-architecture, and the above mentioned two assumptions do not hold anymore. This transformation from PERA to post-PERA architecture is shown in the following diagram. Thus, the following questions are raised naturally – what does it mean for cybersecurity in the new manufacturing industry? What cybersecurity challenges are introduced? What can we, as cybersecurity professionals, do to address those new challenges? Dong position paper Dong bio

George Burrus University of South Florida My research to date focuses on the social-psychology of cybercrime motivations and the systems’ response to the problem. The current state of cybersecurity research is limited as the vast amount of generated data remains unavailable to researchers. My hope is to forge an interdisciplinary research collaboration that will involve government agencies as well as industry. We can only begin to do that by showing stakeholders that our research is of value to the practice of cybersecurity. George position paper George bio

Alvaro Cardenas University of Texas at Dallas

A decade ago (in the Usenix Security 2008 workshop HotSec) I presented my second paper on how control theory and cyber-security needed to work hand in hand to address the new emerging risks of cyber-physical systems. This paper has become one of my most cited papers, and in the decade following this publication, we have seen a large and active academic community using concepts in control theory to improve the security of cyber-physical systems. I would like to use this opportunity to return a decade later to another workshop associated with Usenix Security and discuss my perspective on the developments in this field in the last decade, which have been summarized in a recently accepted article at the ACM Computing Surveys journal.

Kyle Ingols MIT Lincoln Laboratory

MIT Lincoln Laboratory serves to bridge the gap between academic research and fielded systems in support of US national security. Messrs. Bush and Ingols, and their colleagues, though members of the Cyber Security and Information Sciences division, are frequently called upon to collaborate with Lincoln’s other mission areas on a wide variety of hard problems in security, running the gamut from satellites to undersea systems, from large RADARs to microelectronic fabrication, from standalone devices to large networks and systems-of-systems. In addition to our interest in the low-level work in the field, we hope our work and their colleagues’ work with critical infrastructure and other Government systems can help to inform the discussion.
