"Modern Malware and Secure Techniques for Better Software"

Modern society depends on reliable computer systems, yet hardly a day passes without news of a new failure of computer security. Whether enticed by profit or by politics, professional hacking organizations rival mainstream software companies in their technical and process sophistication. Professional malware and computer exploitation relies on the ability to take control of computer systems through software vulnerabilities. This seminar will explain software vulnerabilities and exploits through example. The seminar will explain techniques to create secure software, and will demonstrate GTRI work in the area of software assurance as applied to enterprise operating systems and embedded systems.

Joel Odom leads a team of researchers focused on software security as branch head for the Cybersecurity, Information Protection, and Hardware Evaluation Research (CIPHER) Lab at the Georgia Tech Research Institute, where he serves as senior research scientist. He and his team research static and dynamic software analysis, software testing techniques, software reverse engineering, and software vulnerability discovery and mitigation.

 

Organized by the Institute for Information Security & Privacy, the free and open-to-the-public Cybersecurity Lecture Series meets throughout the fall each Friday at Noon on the Georgia Tech campus, August – December. Invited speakers include executives and researchers from Fortune 500 companies, federal intelligence agencies, start-ups and incubators, as well as Georgia Tech faculty and students presenting their research.
