Accepting submissions till 18 Oct 2021, 01:20 PM

The first edition of the Data Privacy Conference was held between 23 and 29 April 2021.

The conference featured talks and discussions around:

  1. Processes for doing compliance and building privacy features in large and growing organizations.
  2. Case studies of compliance, mainly GDPR and related practices of data anonymization and data deletion.
  3. Using technology to handle processes for handling Personally Identifiable Information (PII); evaluation of developer tools that organizations use for governing access to PII and sensitive data - and whether to build, rent or buy these.
  4. End-to-end encryption - technology and policy debates; practical applications.
  5. Privacy preserving practices in consumer technology - netbanking and Android and mobile.
  6. Cloud security practices; multi-geography compliance with cloud.

Speakers from LinkedIn, Whatsapp, Hotstar, Mozilla, Zerodha, ThoughtWorks, Appsecco, Gojek and other organizations shared their experiences, and demonstrated how the combination of ‘intent, process, resources and technology’ come together to help companies build privacy-respecting products.

Participants in the conference included:

  1. SRE, DevSecOps and DevOps teams working with legal and compliance teams to heavy-lift operations around privacy and compliance.
  2. Product managers building secure and compliant systems.
  3. Business and engineering heads of organizations which deal with large volumes of consumer data on a regular basis.
  4. Representatives early to mid-stage fintech companies which are evolving systems to handle petabytes of data securely in compliance with larger governance laws.
  5. Consultants working on cloud and security; pricacy and compliance.

Cryptographic Protocols for a Secure and Private IoT

Submitted Feb 12, 2021

The Internet of Things (IoT) suffers from critical, systemic, security and privacy flaws. Problems of Spoofable Identities, Weak Authentication and Ambient Authority are common in most deployments.

Businesses see IoT solutions as an opportunity to reduce costs, increase employee safety and create new revenue streams. Consumers often love the convenience offered by home and wearable IoT products. Adoption is growing rapidly and simultaneously there has been a steady escalation in the severity of attacks against IoT that compromise private information and critical systems.

This talk will discuss how several cryptographic protocol building-blocks, that have been proven in other domains, can be adapted to address foundational problems in IoT. For example, we’ll discuss how protocols from open encrypted messaging projects like Signal can be adapted for end-to-end encrypted communication in IoT. How pairing based cryptography, short group signatures and zero knowledge proofs can be used for efficient privacy preserving authorization credentials in resource constrained machines. And many other such examples of applying proven primitives to secure communication and robust access management in real world IoT systems.

We’ll explore how these building blocks can be combined to create an Internet of Things that is dependable and preserves our privacy.

Many of the ideas presented in this talk are being researched, discussed and implemented as Rust and Elixir libraries in our open source project - Ockam
