Joint Colloquium Distinguished Lecture Series

Implementing Security and Fault-tolerance

Wednesday, December 7th
HP Auditorium, Soda Hall

Fred B. Schneider
Senior Research Scientist


It is indeed possible to build a trustworthy system from untrustworthy components, but not by implementing the fault-tolerance and security separately. Separation of concerns just does not apply. This lecture will discuss methods that do apply, with an emphasis on methods for discharging the independencer assumption intrinsic in the use of replication. Research prototypes that employ these ideas will be outlined.


Fred Schneider is a Professor of Computer Science at Cornell University and is the Director of the Information Assurance Institute, and is Chief Scientist for TRUST (NSF Science and Technology Center: Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technologies).
