About SCyFI 2018

Showcasing cybersecurity R&D highlights from academia

Want to learn about the cutting-edge cybersecurity research that is taking place in Singapore's universities and research institutions?

SCyFI 2018

Join us at Singapore Cybersecurity Future Innovations (SCyFI) , a half-day showcase of cybersecurity research on 20 September 2018 jointly organized by the National Cybersecurity R&D Programme and Singapore Cybersecurity Consortium. SCyFI will be held in conjunction with GovWare 2018 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre and feature presentations by distinguished members of Singapore's academic community and interactive cybersecurity exhibits by universities and start-ups.

SCyFI is free and no registration is required!

Opening address by the National Research Foundation.

George Loh, Director (Programmes), NRF

With the trend of cloud computing, outsourcing data in the cloud has seen remarkable growth in the last decade. However, the scale and frequency of data breaches in the cloud are staggering. To address individuals’ and organizations’ data security concerns, a family of new cryptographic techniques, called attribute-based encryption (ABE), has been proposed as a promising solution for achieving efficient and scalable end-to-end data security and privacy in the cloud. This talk will give an overview on the recent progress in ABE-based secure cloud storage systems, from security assumption, system architecture, performance, to a prototype implementation.

Robert Deng, Professor, SMU

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) are often safety-critical yet they are challenging to analyse. In this talk, I will introduce our recent attempts on solving research problems associated with safety and security of CPS through techniques developed in software engineering community. I will show a practical approach which applies program mutation and machine learning to attest CPS, to detect code-modification attacks. I will conclude with a list of research questions which are yet to be solved.

The steady rise of intelligence and autonomy over a scale of distributed, connected and smart components is heralding the era of Internet-of-Intelligence. Without adequate safeguards in place, such components can lead to terrible consequences. In this talk, I will discuss three aspects - namely, vulnerability, security and privacy of such edge–computing scenarios. The vulnerability aspect will show how a simple setup can derail sophisticated unmanned aerial vehicles. The security angle will be discussed through a novel countermeasure, which, via extremely fine-grained profiling and machine learning techniques is able to thwart the latest ransomware attacks. Lastly, the privacy perspective will be presented through an innovative compression technique, realised on top of a video/image processing platform.

This talk presents the design of Bitcoin’s core innovation, the blockchain consensus protocol, in a nutshell. It explains when this protocol works securely and when its security breaks down.Our research proposes a new paradigm of solutions that is scalable without downgrading security, and its large-scale deployment in a public blockchain infrastructure. The talk will provide an overview of other pressing security challenges in the space of blockchains.
