SGX Security and Privacy ======================== Thursday, November 2nd, 9:00am – 12:30pm, Dallas Ballroom D3 Taesoo Kim (Georgia Tech) Zhiqiang Lin (UT Dallas) Chia-Che Tsai (Stony Brook University / UC Berkeley) Abstract -------- Abstract: In this tutorial, we will first introduce the basic concepts of Intel SGX, its development workflows, potential applications and performance characteristics. Then, we will explain known security concerns, including cache/branch side-channel attacks and memory safety issues, and corresponding defenses with various working demos. Last but not least, we will introduce various ways to quickly start writing SGX applications, specifically by utilizing library OSes or thin shielding layers; we will explain the pros and cons of each approach in terms of security and usability. - SGX 101: introduction, performance, and applications ([01-intro.pdf](sgx-tutorial-ccs17/01-intro.pdf)) - SGX shielding framework and development tools ([02-libos.pdf](sgx-tutorial-ccs17/02-libos.pdf)) - SGX Security Issues ([03-security.pdf](sgx-tutorial-ccs17/03-security.pdf)) Biography --------- Biography: Taesoo Kim is an Assistant Professor in the School Computer Science at Georgia Tech. He also serves as the director of the Georgia Tech Systems Software and Security Center (GTS3). He is interested in building a system that has underlying principles for why it should be secure. Those principles include the design of a system, analysis of its implementation, and clear separation of trusted components. His thesis work, in particular, focused on detecting and recovering from attacks on computer systems. He holds a BS from KAIST (2009), a SM (2011) and a PhD (2014) from MIT in CS. Zhiqiang Lin is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at The University of Texas at Dallas. He earned his PhD from Computer Science Department at Purdue University in 2011. His primary research interests are systems and software security, with an emphasis on developing program analysis techniques and applying them to secure both application programs including mobile apps and the underlying system software such as Operating Systems and hypervisors. Dr. Lin is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award and the AFOSR Young Investigator Award. Chia-Che Tsai is a PhD candidate at Stony Brook University, and will soon join the RISE Lab at UC Berkeley as a postdoc researcher. He is also joining the Computer Science and Engineering department of Texas A&M University in Fall 2018 as a faculty. He is interested in building OSes and runtimes with a balance between usability, security, and performance. He is the main contributor to the Graphene library OS, an open-source framework for reusing unmodified Linux applications on Intel SGX and other various host options.
