Researchers from academia and industry have identifiedinteresting threat vectors against machine learning systems. These threatsexploit intrinsic vulnerabilities in the system, or vulnerabilities that arisenaturally from how the system works rather than being the result of a specificimplementation flaw. In this talk, I present recent results in threats tomachine learning systems from academia and industry, including some of our ownresearch at Riverside Research. Knowing about these threats is only half thebattle, however. We must determine how to transition both the understandinggained by developing attacks and specific defenses into practice to ensure thesecurity of fielded systems. In this talk I leverage my experience working onstandards committees to present an approach for leveraging machine learningprotection requirements on systems that use machine learning.
