Topic: "A Doctrine of Public Cybersecurity"
Speaker: Dr. Fred B. Schneider
Computer Science Department
Cornell University
Abstract: With increasing dependence on networked computing systems comes increasing vulnerability. The vulnerabilities are mostly technical in origin, but their remediation is not. Only by coupling technical insights with public policy do we stand a good chance to create a safer and more secure cyberspace. This talk will survey the landscape, discuss why past doctrines have failed, and propose a new doctrine of public cybersecurity. (Joint work with Deirdre Mulligan of the University of California, Berkeley.)
Bio: Dr. Fred B. Schneider is the chairman and Samuel B. Eckert Professor of Computer Science at Cornell, where he has been on the faculty since 1978. Schneider's research concerns trustworthy systems, most recently focusing on computer security. He was the editor of "Trust in Cyberspace, a report from the U.S. National Research Council's study committee on information systems trustworthiness that Schneider chaired. A fellow of the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science), ACM (Association for Computing Machinery), and IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), Schneider was awarded a D.Sc. [honoris causa] by the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 2003. His survey paper on state machine replication received an ACM SIGOPS (Special Interest Group on Operating Systems) Hall of Fame Award in 2007. He received the 2012 IEEE Emanuel R. Piore Award for "contributions to trustworthy computing through novel approaches to security, fault-tolerance and formal methods for concurrent and distributed systems". He was elected to membership of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and to its Norwegian counterpart, the Norwegian Academy of Technological Sciences (NTVA).

Schneider is a member of the board for the Computing Research Association, the NRC Computer Science and Telecommunications Board (CSTB) and NRC Naval Studies Board (NSB), and he is the founding chair of NRC Forum on Cyber Resilience. He served on the Pentagon's Defense Science Board (DSB) and continues to serve on various DSB task forces.
