14:15-14:35
Drink from the fire hose: how your CPU shouts out your deepest secrets

Speaker: Kaveh Razavi, VUSec, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Abstract
No abstract is available yet because of a publication embargo.

14:35-14:55
Exploring the social dimension of cybercriminal networks.

Speaker: Rutger Leukfeldt, NSCR

Abstract
We analysed 40 cybercriminal networks that were involved in phishing, banking malware and hacking to see if they could be labelled loners, colleagues, peers, teams, or formal organizations. In contrast with prior research, the majority of our cases can be labelled a team or a formal organization.

14:55-15:15
Lattice-based cryptography: Standardization and security estimation

Speaker: Leo Ducas, CWI

Abstract
In this talk, I will present the status of the ongoing standardization process for quantum-safe cryptography, highlight some lattice base candidates, and discuss advances in their cryptanalysis.

15:30-15:50
Law and cybersecurity

Speaker: Arno R. Lodder, VU-Centre for Law and Internet

Abstract
Breaking security is both prohibited (e.g. hacking) and allowed (police, intelligence agencies). The law is still struggling with designing the right framework in the area of cybercrime, -security, -war. Some issues are enforcement and attribution.

15:50-16:10
SarNet: Autonomous Response Network

Speaker: Ralph Koning, SNE, UvA

Abstract
Self defending systems or networks can offload security teams and enable them to focus on new and pressing threats. This talk will cover such systems in the context of the SARNET (Secure Autonomous Response NETworks) project: the experimentation environment, a method for evaluating defense performance, and how we orchestrate defenses in single networks and in collaborations of multiple network domains.
