报告题目：Trustworthy Data Collection for Cyber Systems and Applications
报告人：Md Zakirul Alam Bhuiyan 教授
报告简介: Businesses, governments, and individuals depend more and more on the data security and privacy protection in cyber systems. As data collection becomes broader and easier through automated data collection, sensors, and the IoT, protecting the data is becoming more of a focus. The concept of “big data” just increases the focus. Many of the current contributions focus on maintaining data security and privacy in the processing, storage, transmission, and decision-making. However, there can be a question, what would be the situation if low-quality, untrustworthy, meaningless, or undependable data are collected at the time of acquisition, and we apply various strong security protocols to process, store, and transmit the data and make decisions for various cyber system and applications. Also, what would be the situation when assuming that existing privacy-preserving protocols for communication and decision-making seem to be effective, however, if the data being protected by these protocols is itself suspect due to attacks on the privacy at the data gathering process. In this talk, I will highlight these situations and show how untrustworthy concerns may appear during the data collection. I will then discuss challenges and potential solutions for the trustworthy data collection.
