Casting exploit analysis as a Weird Machine reconstruction problem
Exploits constitute malware in the form of application inputs. They take advantage of security vulnerabilities inside programs in order to yield execution control to attackers. The root cause of successful exploitation lies in emergent functionality introduced when programs are compiled and loaded in memory for execution, called `Weird Machines' (WMs). Essentially WMs are unexpected virtual machines that execute attackers' bytecode, complicating malware analysis whenever the bytecode set is unknown. We take the direction that WM bytecode is best understood at the level of the process memory layout attained by exploit execution. Each step building towards this memory layout comprises an exploit primitive, an exploit's basic building block. This work presents a WM reconstruction algorithm that works by identifying pre-defined exploit primitive-related behaviour during the dynamic analysis of target binaries, associating it with the responsible exploit segment - the WM bytecode. In this...

Vronicle: A System for Producing Videos with Verifiable Provenance
Demonstrating the veracity of videos is a longstanding problem that has recently become more urgent and acute. It is extremely hard to accurately detect manipulated videos using content analysis, especially in the face of subtle, yet effective, manipulations, such as frame rate changes or skin tone adjustments. One prominent alternative to content analysis is to securely embed provenance information into videos. However, prior approaches have poor performance and/or granularity that is too coarse. To this end, we construct Vronicle -- a video provenance system that offers fine-grained provenance information and substantially better performance. It allows a video consumer to authenticate the camera that originated the video and the exact sequence of video filters that were subsequently applied to it. Vronicle exploits the increasing popularity and availability of Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) on many types of computing platforms. One contribution of Vronicle is the design of...

MixNN: Protection of Federated Learning Against Inference Attacks by Mixing Neural Network Layers
Machine Learning (ML) has emerged as a core technology to provide learning models to perform complex tasks. Boosted by Machine Learning as a Service (MLaaS), the number of applications relying on ML capabilities is ever increasing. However, ML models are the source of different privacy violations through passive or active attacks from different entities. In this paper, we present MixNN a proxy-based privacy-preserving system for federated learning to protect the privacy of participants against a curious or malicious aggregation server trying to infer sensitive attributes. MixNN receives the model updates from participants and mixes layers between participants before sending the mixed updates to the aggregation server. This mixing strategy drastically reduces privacy without any trade-off with utility. Indeed, mixing the updates of the model has no impact on the result of the aggregation of the updates computed by the server. We experimentally evaluate MixNN and design a new attribute...

A Generative Federated Learning Framework for Differential Privacy
In machine learning, differential privacy and federated learning concepts are gaining more and more importance in an increasingly interconnected world. While the former refers to the sharing of private data characterized by strict security rules to protect individual privacy, the latter refers to distributed learning techniques in which a central server exchanges information with different clients for machine learning purposes. In recent years, many studies have shown the possibility of bypassing the privacy shields of these systems and exploiting the vulnerabilities of machine learning models, making them leak the information with which they have been trained. In this work, we present the 3DGL framework, an alternative to the current federated learning paradigms. Its goal is to share generative models with high levels of $\varepsilon$-differential privacy. In addition, we propose DDP-$$VAE, a deep generative model capable of generating synthetic data with high levels of utility and...

Learning Generative Deception Strategies in Combinatorial Masking Games
Deception is a crucial tool in the cyberdefence repertoire, enabling defenders to leverage their informational advantage to reduce the likelihood of successful attacks. One way deception can be employed is through obscuring, or masking, some of the information about how systems are configured, increasing attacker's uncertainty about their targets. We present a novel game-theoretic model of the resulting defender-attacker interaction, where the defender chooses a subset of attributes to mask, while the attacker responds by choosing an exploit to execute. The strategies of both players have combinatorial structure with complex informational dependencies, and therefore even representing these strategies is not trivial. First, we show that the problem of computing an equilibrium of the resulting zero-sum defender-attacker game can be represented as a linear program with a combinatorial number of system configuration variables and constraints, and develop a constraint generation approach...

Finite-key Analysis for Quantum Conference Key Agreement with Asymmetric Channels
As an essential ingredient of quantum networks, quantum conference key agreement (QCKA) provides unconditional secret keys among multiple parties, which enables only legitimate users to decrypt the encrypted message. Recently, some QCKA protocols employing twin-field was proposed to promote transmission distance. These protocols, however, suffer from relatively low conference key rate and short transmission distance over asymmetric channels, which demands a prompt solution in practice. Here, we consider a tripartite QCKA protocol utilizing the idea of sending-or-not-sending twin-field scheme and propose a high-efficiency QCKA over asymmetric channels by removing the symmetry parameters condition. Besides, we provide a composable finite-key analysis with rigorous security proof against general attacks by exploiting the entropic uncertainty relation for multiparty system. Our protocol greatly improves the feasibility to establish conference keys over asymmetric channels.

Who are the arbitrageurs? Empirical evidence from Bitcoin traders in the Mt. Gox exchange platform
We mine the leaked history of trades on Mt. Gox, the dominant Bitcoin exchange from 2011 to early 2014, to detect the triangular arbitrage activity conducted within the platform. The availability of user identifiers per trade allows us to focus on the historical record of 440 investors, detected as arbitrageurs, and consequently to describe their trading behavior. We begin by showing that a considerable difference appears between arbitrageurs when indicators of their expertise are taken into account. In particular, we distinguish between those who conducted arbitrage in a single or in multiple markets: using this element as a proxy for trade ability, we find that arbitrage actions performed by expert users are on average non-profitable when transaction costs are accounted for, while skilled investors conduct arbitrage at a positive and statistically significant premium. Next, we show that specific trading strategies, such as splitting orders or conducting arbitrage non aggressively,...

MITOSIS: Practically Scaling Permissioned Blockchains
Scalability remains one of the biggest challenges to the adoption of permissioned blockchain technologies for large-scale deployments. Permissioned blockchains typically exhibit low latencies, compared to permissionless deployments -- however at the cost of poor scalability. Various solutions were proposed to capture "the best of both worlds", targeting low latency and high scalability simultaneously, the most prominent technique being blockchain sharding. However, most existing sharding proposals exploit features of the permissionless model and are therefore restricted to cryptocurrency applications. We present MITOSIS, a novel approach to practically improve scalability of permissioned blockchains. Our system allows the dynamic creation of blockchains, as more participants join the system, to meet practical scalability requirements. Crucially, it enables the division of an existing blockchain (and its participants) into two -- reminiscent of mitosis, the biological process of cell...

DeSMP: Differential Privacy-exploited Stealthy Model Poisoning Attacks in Federated Learning
Federated learning (FL) has become an emerging machine learning technique lately due to its efficacy in safeguarding the client's confidential information. Nevertheless, despite the inherent and additional privacy-preserving mechanisms (e.g., differential privacy, secure multi-party computation, etc.), the FL models are still vulnerable to various privacy-violating and security-compromising attacks (e.g., data or model poisoning) due to their numerous attack vectors which in turn, make the models either ineffective or sub-optimal. Existing adversarial models focusing on untargeted model poisoning attacks are not enough stealthy and persistent at the same time because of their conflicting nature (large scale attacks are easier to detect and vice versa) and thus, remain an unsolved research problem in this adversarial learning paradigm. Considering this, in this paper, we analyze this adversarial learning process in an FL setting and show that a stealthy and persistent model poisoning...

Anti-Neuron Watermarking: Protecting Personal Data Against Unauthorized Neural Model Training
In this paper, we raise up an emerging personal data protection problem where user personal data (e.g. images) could be inappropriately exploited to train deep neural network models without authorization. To solve this problem, we revisit traditional watermarking in advanced machine learning settings. By embedding a watermarking signature using specialized linear color transformation to user images, neural models will be imprinted with such a signature if training data include watermarked images. Then, a third-party verifier can verify potential unauthorized usage by inferring the watermark signature from neural models. We further explore the desired properties of watermarking and signature space for convincing verification. Through extensive experiments, we show empirically that linear color transformation is effective in protecting user's personal images for various realistic settings. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work to protect users' personal data from...
