Talk title:

"Information Assurance Considerations for Software Supply Chains and 3rd Parties"

 Speaker:

Jeffrey Voas, Computer Scientist at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology

Abstract:

 The notion of having 3rd party software and 3rd party assessors of that software is not novel. What is becoming more main-stream is the desire for a large quantity of current and future mobile app software to be malware-free. The question then becomes how likely is it that malware can be detected by 3rd party groups or individuals.
This talk will discuss at a high level one approach to the problem based on a real military smartphone project for DARPA, and then we conclude if time permits to discuss malware genealogy and composability / interoperability issues that are core to the cyber security dilemma we face. A few other topics that might be addressed in the Q&A portion of the talk include 2 of the 13 grand challenges in software engineering research and practice.
