Yinglian Xie from Microsoft Research chairs this session at Faculty Summit 2012.

With the trend of user data and applications increasingly moving to the cloud, Internet service security is critical to ensure security for the end user and the success of large-scale services. This session examines various threats that target online services today, ranging from user creation and hijacking attacks to those that abuse web and online advertising infrastructure, as well as sophisticated side-channel attacks in cloud computing environments. We also discuss new directions and opportunities for attack detection and defense.
