Certification Authorities Under Attack: A Plea for Certificate Legitimation

Prof. Rolf Oppliger (University of Zürich )

18 avril 2016  -  16:30-17:30, salle Internef 237

Several recent attacks against certification authorities (CAs) and fraudulently issued certificates have called into question die Internet public-key infrastructure‘s security and usefulness. Because such attacks are Iikely to occur repeatedly, countermeasures must be designed,implemented,and put in place.Two particular problem areas in which countermeasures are needed are certificate revocation and certificate authorization.These related areas, which can be subsumecl under the term “certificate legitimation,“ are the subject of several recent proposals and are ripe for new areas of research and development.

Rolf Oppliger studied computer science, mathematics, and economics at the University of Bern, Switzerland, where he received M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science in 1991 and 1993, respectively. In 1999, he received the venia legendi for computer science from the University of Zürich, Switzerland, where he was appointed adjunct professor in 2007. The focus of his professional activities is on technical information security and privacy. In these areas, he has published many books and scientific articles and papers, regularly participates at conferences and workshops (both as a contributor and a member of the respective program committees), serves on the editorial board of some leading magazines and journals.
He works for the Swiss federal administration, and teaches at the University of Zürich.
