The Mozilla Security Research summit will be hosted in Vienna, Austria as part of Mozilla's Security Engineering University Relationship Framework (SURF) initiative. This initiative aims to increase collaboration between Mozilla and the academic community, so as to leverage academic talent to help explore Mozilla-specific security and privacy engineering research problems, and to strengthen Mozilla's ties to the academic community.
The summit audience will consist of a mix of Mozilla engineers, academics, and PhD students. Our intention is for Mozilla engineers to "pitch" research problems to the academic community, so as to spark potential collaboration. Our engineers and researchers plan to deliver talks covering areas such as content security, tracking protection, language-based security, cryptography, web measurement and machine learning. The day will also include some high-caliber talks from security and privacy academics, as well as some fast-paced PhD lightning talks. The event will include ample time for discussion throughout the day and will conclude with a panel discussion.
Please join us to help improve the open web!
Christoph is the Content Security Tech Lead at Mozilla with over 10 years of experience in Secure Systems Development. His work ranges from designing systems with fail safe defaults to fighting cross site scripting as well as preventing man-in-the-middle attacks. He received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine where he based his research on information flow tracking techniques within web browsers.
Steven works as a privacy engineer at Mozilla, where he designs and builds privacy features for Firefox. He received a PhD in Computer Science in the Security Group at Princeton University, where he worked in the Center for Information Technology Policy (CITP). His dissertation research focuses on the automated measurement of privacy-invasive practices on the web.
Thyla manages Cryptography Engineering at Mozilla, and her work encompasses security protocol analysis and standardisation efforts. Prior to starting at Mozilla, Thyla completed a PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London as part of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security. Thyla's PhD thesis is TLS-focused and presents attacks against TLS 1.2 and below, and an analysis of TLS 1.3.
Franziskus is a Senior Security Engineer at Mozilla based in Berlin. Before joining Mozilla he did a PhD at the University of Surrey supervised by Mark Manulis and Shujun Li on the topic of password based authentication and MSc studies in Computer Science and IT-Security at the Technische Universität Darmstadt.
Nataliia is a research scientist at Inria Sophia Antipolis, where
she started an interdisciplinary research in Computer Science and Data
Protection Law. Her main research interests are measurement, detection
and protection from Web tracking. She also collaborates with Law
researchers to understand how GDPR and ePrivacy Regulation can be
enforced in Web applications.
Kenny joined ETH Zurich as a Professor of Computer Science in April 2019. Kenny's research over the last two decades has mostly been in the area of Cryptography, with a strong emphasis being on the analysis of deployed cryptographic systems and the development of provably secure solutions to real-world cryptographic problems. Kenny was made a fellow of the IACR in 2017.
Gunes is a FWO postdoctoral fellow at KU Leuven's COSIC research group. His research interests involve web tracking measurement, anonymous communications, and IoT privacy and security. Gunes obtained his PhD at KU Leuven in 2017, and was a postdoctoral researcher between 2017 and 2019 at Princeton University's Center for Information Technology Policy.
