  Cambridge Cyber Summit |
  Share. Solve. Secure.


October 5, 2016 | MIT Kresge Auditorium

The Aspen Institute's Homeland Security Program, CNBC and MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) are partnering for the Cambridge Cyber Summit to find ways to combat urgent cyberthreats and secure America's future.

C-suite executives and business owners come together with public- and private-sector leaders in security, technology and defense at the Cambridge Cyber Summit, focusing on the next wave of cyberattacks and their perpetrators, countermeasures, privacy vs. security, the government's role in protecting private industry, and the latest trends in tech.

Encrypted Search

Seny Kamara
Associate Professor from the Department of Computer Science,
Brown University

In this talk Professor Kamara will survey encrypted databases (EDB) and the underlying problem of encrypted search; that is, how can we search on encrypted data? As the technologies we deploy produce and consume an increasing amount of data, we are witnessing several conflicting trends.

On one hand, these massive datasets are becoming more intrusive and privacy-sensitive and on the other they are becoming harder to secure. The latter is well-illustrated by the prevalence of data breaches and by the recent Snowden disclosures.  Unfortunately, the standard tools at our disposal for enforcing data privacy and security, like encryption, undermine the utility of many critical technologies such as databases, cloud computing, cloud storage, machine learning and data analytics.

The area of encrypted search aims to solve this dilemma and reconcile these trends by producing a new generation of cryptographic primitives and systems that can secure data without eliminating its utility.
