Biography: Murtuza Jadliwala is a Cloud Technology Endowed Fellow and an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), where he directs the Security, Privacy, Trust and Ethics in Computing Research Lab (SPriTELab). His research interests are in cyber and cyber-physical systems security & user-privacy, with a special emphasis on the topics of Mobile & IoT Security, Distributed Systems Security, Privacy Enhancing Technologies, Incentive-based Mechanism Design for Security, Adversarial Machine Learning and Design of Mobile/Ubiquitous Sensing Algorithms, Systems and Applications. He obtained his doctoral (PhD) degree in Computer Science from the University at Buffalo, State University of New York in 2008. Prior to joining UTSA, he was a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland (2008 – 2011) and an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas (2012 – 2017). He has served as the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Summer Faculty Fellow in 2015, has received the Dwayne and Velma Wallace Excellence in Teaching Award in 2017, and received the National Science Foundation’s CAREER award in 2020.

Topic: Friend or Foe? An Era of Fun and Games (… and Mischief) with IoT Sensors.

Abstract: Abstract: In the present highly inter-connected world, new devices are becoming “smart” or Internet-enabled at an extraordinary pace. These devices, often referred to as Internet-of-Things or IoT devices, include consumer gadgets and appliances such as smart phones, smart watches, smart bulbs, smart TVs, and smart doorbells, to name a few. Such IoT devices are equipped with high-precision sensing and actuation capabilities that can capture fine-grained contextual information about users and their environment and can support a variety of novel context- and activity-based applications. The presence of such a diverse set of on-board sensors also exposes an additional attack surface and access to these sensors, if not appropriately controlled, can be potentially exploited by malicious applications to infer sensitive information about users (of these devices). In this talk, I will highlight the user-privacy threat due to modern IoT devices by showing the feasibility of different types of private data inference attacks which employ sensor data from these devices as information side-channels to infer sensitive information such as keystrokes, lock combinations, physical key designs and user preferences. Time permitting, I will also briefly discuss upcoming innovations and research challenges in this space.
