Industrialization and Economic Statecraft in the Data Age

Naazneen Barma, Associate Professor/Visiting Scholar, Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, Naval Postgraduate School/UC Berkeley
The central goal of the proposed research effort is to build the analytical framework and collect basic data for a new a research agenda on industrialization and economic statecraft strategies in the context of the global data economy. There is active and rigorous political economy scholarship devoted to the question...

Privacy Engineering: Education and Training

Daniel Aranki, Executive Director|Postdoctoral Scholar|Lecturer, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley
Preparing cybersecurity professionals for the workforce requires educating and training said professionals in both security and privacy. Cybersecurity curricula in the US are lacking a technical privacy syllabus, often dubbed Privacy Engineering. To bridge this gap, we have been working for the last few years to build a foundational course...

Enabling online anonymity for vulnerable individuals and organizations

Venkatachalam Anantharam, Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley
Anonymity is a need for vulnerable individuals and organization, particularly in closed societies where they would likely face severe consequences, if their identities were known, for their beliefs or actions by them that reveal censored information. On the Internet, many software applications are available for anonymous communication for email, browsing,...

Mobile App Privacy Analysis with AppCensus

Serge Egelman, Research Director, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
Kenneth Bamberger, Professor/Faculty Director, School of Law, UC Berkeley
Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez, Research Scientist/Assistant Research Professor, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley|IMDEA Networks
Irwin Reyes, Researcher, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
Primal Wijesekera, Postdoctoral Researcher, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
Over the past several years, our research team has developed infrastructure that gives us an unprecedented view into the privacy behaviors of Android apps. AppCensus is our dynamic analysis testbed that combines bespoke instrumentation within the operating system itself with sophisticated network analysis tools, which allows us to detect exactly...

Automatic Guidance for Privacy-Aware Browsing

Gerald Friedland, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, UC Berkeley
The recent change in EU law (as well as, for example, the Facebook login key activation scheme) requires most authentication-enabled websites to have a privacy policy under /privacy, even when they go through Google or GitHub. We propose to build a browser plugin that automatically reads out the privacy policy...

Evaluating Privacy and Security of Emerging Technologies for Older Adults

Alisa Frik, Postdoctoral Fellow, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
Florian Schaub, Assistant Professor, School of Information, University of Michigan
Primal Wijesekera, Postdoctoral Researcher, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
Serge Egelman, Research Director, International Computer Science Institute, UC Berkeley
In recent years, older adults have been increasingly involved in using technologies, including emerging devices, especially in the domain of healthcare, such as wearable and in-home health management, safety monitoring, fall detection, and emergency alert systems. These technologies aid in improving elderly people’s safety and health, and support independent living....

Developing Graduate Pedagogy for Tomorrow’s Engineers

Thomas Gilbert, PhD Candidate, Sociology, UC Berkeley
Sarah Dean, PhD Student, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, UC Berkeley
Roel Dobbe, Postdoctoral Researcher, AI Now Institute, New York University
Nitin Kohli, PhD Student, School of Information, UC Berkeley
McKane Andrus, Graduate Student Researcher, Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research, UC Berkeley
From Facebook’s data negligence to the first fatalities involving autonomous vehicles, 2018 has seen the public awaken to the profound security implications of widespread AI and large scale data collection. We propose a purposeful convening at Berkeley to reorient cybersecurity research and pedagogy towards protecting civil institutions through robustness, fairness,...

Speculating ‘Smart City’ Cybersecurity with the Heart Sounds Bench: Détourning Data and Surveillance in Public Space

Noura Howell, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
‘Smart city’ visions promise safety and efficiency using sensors, data, and technology. While data-driven approaches often claim to escape social prejudice with objective insights, they can instead bolster inequity and create cybersecurity threats for vulnerable populations. By changing the visions of what we want sensing and data to do in...

Design of Secure Future Mobility Solutions

Alice Agogino, Professor|Education Director, Department of Mechanical Engineering, UC Berkeley
Euiyoung Kim, Assistant Professor, Department of Product Innovation Management, Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, TU Delft
Vivek Rao, Lecturer, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
The goal of this research is to gain knowledge about cybersecurity vulnerabilities in emerging mobility technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, onboard sensors, monitoring systems, and customizable and shared car services. These new mobility solutions have the potential of reducing cost, time, and resources (such as maintenance cost, insurance, parking, etc.)...

Public-Private Data Relationships: Understanding the Everyday Processes

Yan Fang, PhD Student, School of Law, Jurisprudence and Social Policy, UC Berkeley
Over the past two decades, major consumer-facing Internet companies like Google and Facebook have developed products that create ever-expanding records of people’s lives. These companies now control large amounts of user information that previously did not exist or were held by more widely dispersed economic, social, and government actors. Law...
