The school was hosted at Amrita University, Bangalore, India from August 2 to August 6. This Summer School had hands-on workshop for various students that included graduating students in cyber security, faculties and researchers, security engineers from the industry and Information Security scientists from Government. The summer school focused on the current security and information threats that are having a huge impact on the society and the possible protection techniques and solutions to overcome them. Many international experts from various disciplines of computer science such as software protection, machine learning, Information security, Android security and software engineering presented their research. The topics that were discussed in summer school were obfuscation and tamper-proofing, code attacks, android security, formal methods, malware detection and machine learning for security. The sessions included discussing about the research whereas labs included working on the exploits and using protection tools and techniques to patch them. While at the summer school, Ramya also presented a poster entitled “Realizing White-Box Crypto for Generalized Software Protection”. Ramya has been working with Computer Science professor Dr. Todd McDonald during her Master’s program and will be researching software protection and obfuscation as a doctoral student. She began in SoC’s Ph.D. program in Computing this summer.
