Speaker Bio

Joshua Eisenberg received a B.A. in mathematics from Brandeis University in 2012. In spring of 2014 he finished a B.S. in computer engineering from FIU. For the past two years Joshua has been a National Science Foundation PIRE Fellow doing research with the Open Science Data Cloud (OSDC) and the Data Intensive Research Group (DIR) at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. His research interests are in the theory of computation, the mathematics of privacy and domination problems in graph theory.

Abstract

Verifiable Security and Information Control on Distributed Systems
Verification that a program absolutely does not leak sensitive data when deployed on a distributed system is necessary in order to protect the security of private data sets. This talk will discuss how to verify whether a program preserves privacy of data and how to construct a system that only allows secure computations to run on the distributed resources.
