-TitileIoTcube: An Automated Analysis Platform for Finding Security Vulnerabilities


Heejo Lee is a Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Korea University, Seoul, Korea, and a Director of the Center for Software Security and Assurance (CSSA).  Before joining Korea University, he was at AhnLab, Inc. as a CTO from 2001 to 2003. From 2000 to 2001, he was a Postdoctorate Researcher at the Department of Computer Science and CERIAS at Purdue University. In 2010, he was a visiting professor at CyLab/CMU. Dr. Lee received his B.S., M.S., Ph.D. degree in Computer Science and Engineering from POSTECH, Pohang, Korea. Dr. Lee serves as an editor of the Journal of Communications and Networks, and the International Journal of Network Management. He has been working on the consultation of the cyber security in the Philippines (2006), Uzbekistan (2007), Vietnam (2009), Myanmar (2011), Costa Rica (2013) and Cambodia (2015). He is a recipient of the (ISC)^2 ISLA award of the community service star in 2016.


The increasing popularity of the Internet-of-Things (IoT) has driven exponential growth in the number of IoT devices, which implies that a single vulnerability can be a critical life-threatening issue as shown in cases of automobiles and airplanes. Center for Software Security and Assurance (CSSA) is established for joint research with Korea University, CMU, Oxford University, ETH and KISA. The research in CSSA aims to develop core technologies to analyze and verify potential security vulnerabilities posed by IoT software and develop an automated analysis platform called IoTcube for enabling even non-security professionals to examine security vulnerabilities professionally. In this talk, the technologies in IoTcube and its ongoing efforts will be introduced including blackbox testing, whitebox testing, and network testing.
