I recently collaborated with Andrew Case to develop Volatility plugins to automatically handle the compressed RAM facility in Mac OS X Mavericks, as well as the related facility in Linux. This extends the scope of memory analysis to compressed portions of process address spaces. Our paper on this work will be presented at DFRWS 2014.
I'm the PI on a new NSF EAGER grant (with Carl Weems and Irfan Ahmed) that explores the relationship between psychological traits and both "good" and "bad" cyber behavior. The grant is approximately $250K and we'll complete the work over 2014-2015. We're excited about the work and the chance for the Departments of Computer Science and Psychology to work together for the first time.
Our $1.2M proposal, "TWC: Medium: Collaborative: Towards a Binary-Centric Framework for Cyber Forensics in Enterprise Environments", has been recommended for funding by the NSF. This is a collaboration between UNO and Purdue. I'm currently looking for two very smart Ph.D. students to work on this project, starting in September 2014. Please send me an email if you're interested.
From July 7-18, 2014, I'll be offering a free, intensive, two week IA training program for high school teachers. This effort is funded by a recent grant from the GenCyber program (a collaboration between NSA and NSF). The training program will cover a number of aspects of computer security, including digital forensics, malware analysis, social engineering, reverse engineering, penetration testing, and secure software design. Application is now closed for this year, but we hope to repeat the program in the future.
I presented a talk at BSidesNOLA 2014 on golang, and specifically, reverse engineering applications written in go. The title of the talk is "RE (:) go" and slides are now available here.
