SCRUB: Secure Computing Research for Users Benefit David Wagner http://scrub.cs.berkeley.edu/ 1 Security is hard 2
What is SCRUB? SCRUB is a new center focusing on security for users benefit Model: industry funding + collaboration 4 Intel researchers in residence at Berkeley $2.5M/year in funding Open IP policy Schools: Berkeley, CMU, Drexel, Duke,
Mobile security Security of Desktop Computing Problem: todays desktops use a security architecture based upon 1970s-era threat model. 5
Secure Desktop Computing A thin, low-level intermediation layer can enable secure computation e.g., online banking establish an island of security amidst the sea of malware Benefit to users: secure computing on insecure desktops 7
Securing the desktop: Thin intermediation layer Email OS Web browser
Banking app OS Thin client Intermediation layer Hardware
Mobile Security Huge growth in third-party apps: 9 Mobile Security How do we ensure third-party apps are safe? How do we build effective app permission systems?
Can we make app stores more robust and secure? New paradigm for secure computing: protect against apps, not against users Benefit to users: Secure smartphones, tablets 10
Desktop OS Threat model: users attacking users Applications run with users full privileges 11 Modern Reality Threat model: apps attacking users
One user per device Users dont trust all apps 12 Permission Systems User approves what permissions the application receives. Does this provide security benefits?
13 The Good News Permissions do limit harm from breaches Android apps get median of 4 permissions; desktop apps get 56. Only 10% of Android apps can cost users Developers do complymoney, and only 15% get
personal info. Only 30% of apps are overprivileged, and only a little But can users use permissions effectively? 14 More work needed Some users can use permissions effectively 20% demonstrated awareness and some comprehension
20% have declined to install an app because of perms But, at least on Android, permissions are not effective for most users Only 17% of Android users look at permissions Only 24% understand Android permissions (more or less) Our user studies partially explain why, but more work is needed to find a good solution
15 Apps as paradigm for security Phone Desktop Beyond phones: app-based platforms offer a path to
securing laptops and desktops. 16 Data-centric security Data increasingly resides not only on enduser devices, but also on servers, cloud, Can we provide consistent protection for user data as it flows through a complex distributed system, no matter where it is stored? Benefit to users: visibility and control
over their data 17 Data-centric security Cloud platform protects user data and ensures that apps cant misuse it Each users data is separately encrypted. When cloud authenticates the user, it gives app access to users data. Cloud prevents apps from exfiltrating the data. Ability to audit who has access to data. App cloud server
encrypted, authenticated channel encrypted storage 18 Security analytics How can we accurately measure security? Current approaches lead us in the dark Are our efforts to secure systems making progress?
Goal: robust security metrics and analytics Benefit to users: Ability to prioritize, manage, and measure security 19 Learn more Come visit us: SCRUB Open House, 2-4pm, 373 Soda Hall Come visit the TRUST center, too:
