Keynote Speaker 1

Prof. Felix Wu
Davis Social Links
In this talk, we will discuss the impact of Internet architecture design on network security. In the past few years, there have been many attempts to develop solution to protect our networked system against large-scale attacks such as worm, DDoS, and spam. However, it seems to us (and more and more clearly) that most, if not all, of the proposed solutions are not likely to be effective, given the growth of attacks in numbers and depth. Therefore, the network community has been trying to understand the fundamental issues and the root cause for these large-scale network attacks. One possible idea, currently being actively developed at UC Davis, is called DSL (Davis Social Links). Under DSL, we integrate the concepts of P2P, social networks, and trust management into the network layer, while we remove the requirement of global network identity (e.g., IP addresses or even email addresses, for the context of spam).
Brief Bio
Prof. Felix Wu received his BS from Tunghai University, Taiwan in 1985, MS., and Ph.D. from Columbia University in 1989 and 1995 respectively, all in Computer Science. He is currently a Professor of Computer Science at University of California at Davis, and doing “experimental” research, i.e., building prototype systems to justify and validate novel architectural concepts. He and his students have built many experimental systems in the areas of fault tolerant network, IPSec/VPN security policy, attack source tracing, wireless network security, intrusion detection and response, unknown vulnerability analysis, email spam, information visualization for security, anomaly analysis and explanation. At one point in his career, he realized that he was probably interested in too many things though. Therefore, his latest focus has been on the DSL (Davis Social Links) project, which is currently being sponsored by NSF, DoD, Intel, and ETRI. Prof. Wu has served as a program committee member, an area editor, and a panelist, for many conferences, journals, and funding agencies. He was the program committee co-chair and currently serving in the steering committee for RAID (Symposium on Recent Advances in Intrusion Detection). He was the program chair for DSOM 2004 and IPOM 2007 both under IFIP/IEEE. Just for formality, Prof. Wu has published more than 85 research papers (he hasn't counted very carefully in the past couple years though).
