Abstract

Today’s Internet cannot do without confidentiality and online identification. The cryptography typically used to achieve this, however, is under threat from quantum computers. While a practical quantum computer is years away, it also takes years to standardise and deploy alternative cryptography. Worse, applications that store data long‐term (e.g., captured encrypted Internet traffic) require action now, since if current cryptography is broken, stored data is immediately compromised.

Cryptographers are developing post‐quantum cryptography (PQC) that is secure against attacks with quantum computers. While much progress has been made developing and trialling algorithms, we lack a complete view of the problem space. More boldly: we cannot answer the question “what if the whole Internet had to switch to PQC?”. Nobody “owns the Internet” so who will tackle this challenge? Sure, the tech giants should take action, but the Internet is much broader than that. In my view, this challenge can only be solved with an independent holistic approach that considers all aspects of the Internet.

In this talk I will explore the research challenges for quantum-proofing the whole Internet and will propose a research agenda to tackle these challenges. I will show how we need to examine all parts of the Internet that rely on public-key cryptography and how we need to decide if we can simply replace algorithms, if we maybe have to re-engineer protocols and applications, or if the costs are simply too high and we should retire protocols or applications.

How the digital transformation is changing our lives

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown all of us the benefits of information technology. It allows us to work at a distance, to live at a distance, and most importantly, to keep in touch at a distance – with younger and older people, those closest to us, and even make new contacts.

Our society relies more and more on information and operational technologies. Examples include water, energy, heat and cooling supply, communications, healthcare, production and processing of goods, transportation, national security, banking, research and education, and food production.

What all these areas have in common is that they make intensive use of networked distributed computer systems. These systems can be attacked in many ways. This is no longer just a problem for computer “pros” because computer systems are essential to all of us. The effects of “cyber-attacks” range from power outages to the collapse of the health care or banking sectors.

Abstract

My talk will be about the paradigm shift from security to resilience, and especially the ways, the steps, the obstacles, chances, and risks. What to do to get a cyber resilient system?
Cybersecurity is necessary to think in another way; and certainly in terms of cyber resilience. Since we cannot build 100% secure systems, the question is, how we can build robust systems where the overall functionality is provided – also in case some parts are failing.

Prof. Dreo studied computer science at the University of Maribor, Slovenia and received her doctorate and habilitation at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich (LMU) with “summa cum laude”.
In 1997, she received the LMU’s doctoral sponsorship award.
2016 she was awarded the Europe Medal by the Minister of State Dr. Merk
In 2019, she was selected as one of the 50 most influential women in Europe in the field of cybersecurity
In 2020, she was awarded the silver medal of the city of Neubiberg, Germany

Her research focuses, among others, on detection and mitigation of cyber attacks, in particular so-called Advanced Persistent Threats, development of novel cyber defense approaches in the environment of network-based moving target defense, use of ML-based approaches in security event analysis, 5G and IoT, situational awareness and social analytics, software defined networks and quantum communication.

Abstract

Despite of promising impact, Edge AI is facing two major challenges for its large scale deployment: trustworthiness and sustainability.

On trustworthiness, Edge AI benefits from its close proximity to the end-devices and user generated data. However, due to the distributed deployment and deep penetration into personal context, the safety and perceived trustworthiness for Edge AI services raise concerns among several stakeholders (e.g., end users, public sectors, ISP). To achieve trustworthy Edge AI, critical building blocks are needed for ensuring transparency, fairness and robustness, especially for its training and deployment in decentralized, uncontrolled environments. The trustworthiness of Edge AI is a stepping stone, on which the promise of Edge AI can be built.

Meanwhile, being a critical goal of sustainability, the energy consumption of Edge AI needs to be optimized. The energy efficiency is crucial for embedding Edge AI to our infrastructures (e.g., road side units, micro base stations) in order to sustainably support advanced autonomous driving and Extended Reality (XR) services in the years to come. Across the pipeline of data acquisition, transfer, computation, and storage, there exists the possibility for Edge AI to trade off accuracy to less power and less time consumed. For instance, noisy inputs from numerous sensors can be selectively processed and transferred in order to save energy. This new dimension to the optimization design can pave the way towards a sustainable deployment of Edge AI.
