Invited Talk #2


Guenjun Yoo


GitHub, Austrailia

In this talk, I will introduce four main research topics I have been working on summarized as GAME (Graphical security models, AI security, Moving Target Defense, and Evolving attacks & defense automation/evaluation). 

First, recent advances in graphical security models (attack graphs, attack trees, HARMs) and security metrics will be introduced with their applications to Cloud, Internet of Things, etc. 

Second, security attacks to AI (ML/DL) systems and their general defenses will be briefly introduced and my focus areas on AI security (Intrusion Detection System/IDS) will be introduced. 

Third, Moving Target Defense (MTD), which is one of the promising proactive defense techniques, will be introduced with its three dimensions (what, when, how to move), application domain (IoT, autonomous vehicles) and some research issues. 

Finally, Evolving attacks and defences evaluation will be introduced. In this part, I will introduce how graphical security models, measurement, metrics, and AI techniques can be effectively adopted to enable cyber-attack and defense automation and evaluation.

Dr. Dan Dongseong Kim  is Deputy Director of UQ Cybersecurity and an Associate Professor (in the commonwealth system, is broadly equivalent to a North American full professor) (continuing appointment) at The University of Queensland (UQ) (QS World University Ranking in 2024: 43), Brisbane, Australia. Prior to UQ, he was a faculty member (permanent academic staff) in Cyber Security in the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering at The University of Canterbury (UC), Christchurch, New Zealand from 2011 to 2018. From June 2008 to July 2011, Dr Kim was a postdoc in Hudson Chaired Prof. Kishor S. Trivedi (IEEE fellow, the IEEE 2008 Technical Achievement Award recipient)’s research group at Duke University, North Carolina in the US. He worked on Metrics, Models, and Analysis of Network Security funded by the US NSF and Performability Analysis of Cloud Computing funded by the IBM T.J. Watson and NEC Japan, respectively. He was a visiting scholar in Prof. Virgil D. Gligor (currently with the Carnegie Mellon University in the US, former ACM SIGSAC chair, the IEEE 2013 Technical Achievement Award Recipient)'s Security research group at the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland in the US in 2007.

Dr. Kim’s research was supported by the New Zealand’s MBIE, the Qatar National Research Fund, the US Army Research Lab, ITC-PAC, and the Agency for Defense Development in South Korea. 

He is an Elected Member of the IFIP WG 10.4 on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance (2021 onwards). The IFIP WG 10.4 consists of over 60 experts in the field of fault-tolerance, dependable and secure computing. He is currently an Associate Editor of the IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials (impact factor: 33.84 (2022-2023), #1 impact factor among all the IEEE journals) since 2021. He is an Editorial Board Member, Elsevier Computers and Security and Elsevier Computer Networks, respectively.
