ISSISP 2016

7th International Summer School on Information Security and Protection
Hands-on workshops on information security from experts
Limited seats available


When

2 - 6 August 2016

The Seventh International Summer School on Information Security and Protection (ISSISP) is hosted by the Amrita Center for Cybersecurity Systems and Networks, Amrita University . It will be held in Bangalore, India, on Aug 2- 6, 2016.

There is an increasing need for Software Security and Protection due to the growing sensitivity of user data coupled with the ubiquitous nature of computing systems ranging from tiny embedded devices to powerful datacenters. The summer school highlights this need by bringing several internationally renowned speakers from diverse fields in Computer Science such as Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Computer Architecture, Operating Systems and Compiler design into Software Security and Protection.In particular, topics to be covered include code obfuscation, software watermarking, tamper-proofing, virtualization, security modeling, supervised and unsupervised learning for security, formal methods and Android security. This course is catered towards graduate students and professionals from academic, government organizations, industries and research laboratories.

The Speakers

Christian Collberg


University of Arizona, USA

Software Protection


This lecture will show how an adversary can study a program under their control (using disassemblers, decompilers, etc.) in order to extract proprietary information or modify the program, for example in order to bypass a license check
