Professor Michel Cukier (ME/ECE/ISR) gave the invited keynote address on June 27, 2011 at the 5th edition of the Workshop on Recent Advances on Intrusion-Tolerant Systems (WRAITS) in Hong Kong.

Cukier’s talk, entitled, “Empirical Studies in Cybersecurity,” described how cybersecurity data (e.g., incidents, intrusion detection system alerts, network flows and malicious activity against a large range of honeypots) could be analyzed to evaluate the security of organizational networks.

WRAITS is being held in conjunction with the 41st IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2011). WRAITS aims to continue the collaborative discourse on the challenges of building intrusion-tolerant systems and innovative ideas to address them. Intrusion Tolerance combines theoretical aspects of Fault Tolerance and Security with the practical aspects of Systems and Software Engineering distributed (networked) computing systems.

Researchers and practitioners now agree that "intrusion free" or "unattackable" systems that are of any practical use are infeasible. This year's workshop will focus on all aspects of security and dependability that facilitate prevention or minimization of the impact of such events on computing systems, and enable recovery and continued function even if the events succeed in causing some damage. WRAITS will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present designs, algorithms and architectures for intrusion tolerance, new security mechanisms or novel use of existing mechanisms, recent results, discuss open problems that still need research, and challenging survivability problems in specific application and domain areas.
