  • Virtualization Security: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

    Mon, Oct 31, 2016 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

    Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Haibo Chen, Shanghai Jiao Tong University

    Talk Title: Virtualization Security: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

    Series: EE 598 Computer Engineering Seminar Series

    Abstract: The resurgence of virtualization has stimulated its wide adoption in desktop, cloud and mobile environments. With virtualization being a new systems software foundation, virtual machine monitors (or hypervisors) are now treated as the security foundation of the system software stack, due to the promise of being small and providing strict security isolation. In this talk, I will first question whether such a promise still holds in commodity hypervisors by reviewing the historical evolution of virtualization. Based on a negative answer, I will discuss a series of efforts to enhancing the security isolation while minimizing the trusted computing based of the virtualization stack, including leveraging a commodity hypervisor to isolate a group of process, using a nested hypervisor to transparently isolate virtual machines and completely offloading isolation functionalities into on-chip CPU. Finally, I will also describe a set of new security innovation enabled by virtualization, such as live updating, security introspection and fine-grained compartmentalization.

    Biography: Haibo Chen is a Professor at the School of Software, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where he founded and currently leads the Institute of Parallel and Distributed Systems (IPADS) (http://ipads.se.sjtu.edu.cn). Haibo's main research interests are building scalable and dependable systems software, by leveraging cross-layering approaches spanning computer hardware system virtualization and operating systems. He received best paper awards from ICPP, APSys and EuroSys, a bestpaper nominee from HPCA and published intensively on top conferences like SOSP/OSDI/EuroSys/Usenix ATC/ISCA/MICRO/HPCA/FAST/Usenix Security/CCS. He also received the Young Computer Scientist Award from China Computer Federation, the distinguished Ph.D thesis award from China Ministry of Education and National Youth Top-notch Talent Support Program of China, as well as fault research awards/fellowships from NetApp, Google, IBM and MSRA.He is currently the steering committee co-chair of ACM APSys, the general co-chair of SOSP 2017,serves on program committees of ASPLOS 2017, Oakland 2017, EuroSys 2017 and FAST 2017, and is also on the editorial board of ACM Transactions on Storage.

    Viterbi School of Engineering Student Organizations

    Workshops & Infosessions

    The USC National Organization for Business and Engineering in partnership with USC Business Technology Networking Group Present to you a Tech Talk with BYOR featuring the really smart co-founders of BYOR and FREE PIZZA!

    In Short:

    Who?: BYOR (Build Your Own Resume)
    Why?: Because you want to improve your resume and these really smart co-founders of BYOR have worked at some of the top technology firms and know how resumes are looked at.
    When?: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Monday, October 31st
    Where?: THH 116

    Bring?: A laptop with a PDF of your resume and if you can a job description pasted on a word document of a position you are most looking forward to applying to.

    BYOR (Build Your Own Resume) is an AI-powered resume helper based on hiring managers' feedback specifically targeted towards individuals interested in Software, Data and Analyst related roles. When you upload a resume, our AI engine parses it and returns suggestions on what to improve upon.

    They recently made waves across the internet when they were featured on ProductHunt: https://www.producthunt.com/tech/byor

    Come join us for a fun, informative session with the co-founders of BYOR, Aerin Kim and Rohit Pandey.

    Aerin graduated from Yonsei University with a Bachelors in Computer Science and Industrial Engineering and then went on to get her Masters in Operations Research at Columbia University in the City of New York. Prior to co-founding BYOR, Aerin was with Standard Chartered Bank as a Senior Manager and then Data Scientist at Boxfish.

    Rohit Pandey graduate from IIT Delhi with a Bachelors in Mechanical, Production and Industrial Technology and then went on to complete his Masters in Operations Research at Columbia University in the City of New York. His work experience includes Indus Valley Partners, The Nielsen Company, Zaloni, Microsoft and LinkedIn.


    Given the increasing interest of deep learning (word2vec) and machine learning from students, this will be a real "tech" talk. In this session we'll teach students about the basic real-world neural networks and the word2vec concept.

    Structure of the Talk:

    First 30 minutes: Introductory session for Deep Learning and word2vec.
    Second 30 minutes: Tech Resume Dos and Donts
    Last 30 minutes: Q&A and live resume fix from BYOR.

    We will be sending out a form to apply to have a live resume fix with Aerin or Rohit soon. We already have a huge demand for this given Aerin and Rohit's unique experience at many desirable tech companies so if you really want to get a 5 minute session with them, we encourage you to put some effort into the form.
