* '''Neural Models of Reputation''',&nbsp; ''Pierre Lison'',&nbsp; ''Norwegian Computing Center.''<br/> This talk present ongoing research on developing data-driven, predictive models of entity reputation (in the sense that it can be considered benign or malicious) for end-point hosts. The talk explains the approach used for learning deep neural networks to automatically predict the reputation of domain names or IP addresses from features extracted from passive DNS data. Furthermore, the talk shows how recurrent neural networks can be employed to detect the presence of malware-generated domain names.

  • TITLE:  Privacy for mobile apps: Technical, regulatory and human challenges
    SPEAKER:  Nurul Momen  (Karlstad University)
    ABSTRACT: What is the most intimate device that you possess? If the answer is your mobile phone, you'd probably be interested in finding out how apps behave. In one end, we have a powerful device capable of collecting, monitoring, processing, transmitting data and in other end, this device is connected to hundreds of services through apps. Undeniably, users are being subjected to privacy exploitation due to the obvious reason - surveillance capitalism. We intend to turn the table around by simply asking - how do the apps behave?
