Human-Centric Security Initiative talk to focus on secure software

January 20, 2015

"Projecting the Integrity and Confidentiality of Security Functions Through Provable Code Obfuscation" will be the topic explored Jan. 23 by the newly-created Human-Centric Security Initiative at the University of New Mexico.

The speaker will be Adrian Chavez of Sandia National Laboratories. Chavez helped develop CodeSeal, a Sandia technology that provides a way to securely make software harder to interpret in a mathematically-provable way.

The talk will be 3-5 p.m. Friday in the Centennial Engineering Center, Room 1044.

The Human-Centric Security Initiative is a collaborative effort between the UNM’s Department of Computer Science, the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Anderson School of Management, and Sandia National Laboratories. The goal of the initiative is to conduct cutting-edge, human-centric research to establish a problem-driven agenda that educates the next generation of ethical hackers and can facilitate technology transfer to benefit society.
