"Politics, Economics, and Security"


This talk will be about how otherwise questionable security decisions are forced by political or economic considerations. As examples, we will look at two network configurations where security considerations are being dominated by other reasons. In one, failure may result in grave national harm, including (possibly) the death of people; the second network is one where hundreds of millions of dollars of damage can be wrought if sensitive information is compromised by one of the parties with access to the network.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
