Casey Deccio (Brigham Young University) gives a Cybersecurity talk

TU Delft Cybersecurity group was pleased to host Casey Deccio (BYU) on February 26 for a Cybersecurity talk!

We all’use the Internet! However, we often take the infrastructure that makes up the Internet for granted. At this fundamental level, systems and users can be left vulnerable to various types of attacks. Learning how the infrastructure is deployed makes administrators, engineers, and academics knowledgeable about the state of the Internet, allowing them to evaluate its current status and recommend improvements. This is referred to as Internet measurement. In this talk we give examples of Internet measurement, including a study in IP address spoofing, intrusion, and DNS and email security.

Dr. Casey Deccio is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Brigham Young University (BYU). He earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in Computer Science from BYU in 2002 and 2004, respectively, and received a Ph.D. from UC Davis, in Computer Science, in 2010. Prior to coming to BYU in 2016, Dr. Deccio was a Senior Research Scientist at Verisign Labs since 2014, where his research included DNS ecosystem tools, monitoring, measurement, and modeling, with the objective of increasing stability, security, and safety of the Internet. Before that he was a Principal Research and Development Cyber Security Staff member at Sandia National Laboratories, where he had been employed since 2004 and where he was responsible for network-related research and development, including DNSSEC and IPv6 deployment efforts. While at Sandia he developed DNSViz, the widely used tool for DNS analysis and visualization. He also served as an ICANN Research Fellow supporting the Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC) in 2013.
