Trustworthy emerging networked systems

  • Panagiotis Papadimitratos KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Swedeny


Users of powerful and versatile mobile devices are always connected and interact online socially, while their physical environments become ‘smart’. Useful, if not valuable, information is available when and where needed, while users themselves are becoming, often unwillingly or unsuspectingly, sources of rich data trails. Numerous tasks get easier, more automated and personalized, while systems and users get exposed to new cyber-threats that can severely harm them. Whether the threat is malware on a smartphone, a rogue connected vehicle, a compromised sensor or actuator, or a snooping service provider, it is paramount to protect user privacy and secure the systems and, consequently, prevent misbehavior. In this talk, we are concerned with the threat landscape for emerging large-scale mobile systems and this two-fold challenge. We consider vehicular communications, participatory sensing, and location-based services; as the basis upon which we unfold the discussion on a number of challenging technical problems and the corresponding security and privacy solutions, and a roadmap towards trustworthy emerging networked systems.


Short Bio

anagiotis (Panos) Papadimitratos earned his Ph.D. degree from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 2005. He then held positions at Virginia Tech, EPFL and Politecnico of Torino. Panos is currently a Professor at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, where he leads the Networked Systems Security group. His research agenda includes a gamut of security and privacy problems, with emphasis on wireless networks. At KTH, he is affiliated with the ACCESS center, leading its Security, Privacy, and Trust thematic area, as well as the ICES center, leading its Industrial Competence Group on Security. Panos is a Knut and Alice Wallenberg Academy Fellow and he received a Swedish Science Foundation Young Researcher Award. He has delivered numerous invited talks, keynotes, and panel addresses, as well as tutorials in flagship conferences. Panos currently serves as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing and the ACM/IEEE Transactions on Networking and as a member of the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Editorial and Advisory Boards. He has served in numerous conference program committees, with leading roles in numerous occasions; as the program chair for ACM WiSec (2016), TRUST (2016), and CANS (2018) conferences, and the general chair for ACM WISec (2018). He currently serves as the general chair for PETS (2019) and IEEE EuroS&P (2019). Panos is a member of the Young Academy of Europe. His group webpage is: www.ee.kth.se/nss.
