The future of interaction & its security challenges


Published on

Abstract: The past decade has seen the exponential rise of online social media usage. Applications have moved from being client-server to collaborative in nature. The next decade will be witness to a tremendous integration of cyber space with physical systems. While these interaction paradigms open up tremendous possibilities they also open up certain risks. This talk will look at the evolving interaction paradigms and their security challenges.

  15. 15. April 2, 14 Accountability – The Grand Challenge People and organizations should not have to give up the benefits of using information appropriately in powerful networked systems in order to avoid the harms that result when the same information is used inappropriately. - Joan Feigenbaum For too long, our approach to information protection policy has been to seek ways to prevent information from escaping beyond appropriate boundaries, then wring our hands when it inevitably does. - “Information Accountability“ by Weitzner, Abelson, Berners-Lee, Feigenbaum, Hendler, and Sussman When information has been used, it should to possible to determine what happened, and to pinpoint use that is inappropriate. - Daniel J. Weitzner Transaction Speed Wide Geographic Spread Ease of Information Flow Identification and Authentication Ease of Tampering of Electronic Records Limited Capture of Actions Associating the Physical Persona to the Electronic Persona Data Integrity Mechanisms Allowing only authorised actions, and associating the Electronic Persona with all important actions Manageability Even narrow windows exploitable Data Protection
