Cybersecurity and Cybercrime Task Force
Chair: Dan Lopresti
An outgrowth of the Sociotechnical Cybersecurity workshop series and previous Cybersecurity Task Force, the Cybersecurity and Cybercrime task force works to identify ways to combat cybercrime and configure best practice for cybersecurity in an increasingly connected world, not solely focused on technical interventions, but also concerned with sociotechnical and economic factors.
Resources curate for this task force include:
5G Security and Privacy – A Research Roadmap
In March 2020 the CCC released the 5G Security and Privacy – A Research Roadmap white paper by CCC Council Member Elisa Bertino (Purdue University), Syed Rafiul Hussain (Purdue University), and Omar Chowdhury (University of Iowa).
Abstract: Cellular networks represent a critical infrastructure and their security is thus crucial. 5G – the latest generation of cellular networks – combines different technologies to increase capacity, reduce latency, and save energy. Due to its complexity and scale, however, ensuring its security is extremely challenging. In this white paper, we outline recent approaches supporting systematic analyses of 4G LTE and 5G protocols and their related defenses and introduce an initial security and privacy roadmap, covering different research challenges, including formal and comprehensive analyses of cellular protocols as defined by the standardization groups, verification of the software implementing the protocols, the design of robust defenses, and application and device security.
