Open-Sourcing Usable Security

Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 4:15pm - Carson L02
Scout Sinclair Brody D'13 Ph.D.
Executive Director, Simply Secure
Co-sponsored by ISTS and the CS Colloquium

Abstract

Scout Sinclair Brody
Scout Sinclair Brody

Security and privacy technologies must be trustworthy; to be trustworthy, they need to be open to scrutiny and validation. At the heart of open source is an openness to this type of scrutiny, and a willingness to work collaboratively to fix problems and improve as a part of earning this trust.

Bio

Scout has long been passionate about improving the usability of security tools. Her Computer Science doctoral dissertation, Access Control In and For The Real World, focused on the mis-integration of classic security mechanisms with modern human organizations.

As a Product Manager at Google, she worked on projects such as 2-step verification, the Android operating system, and uProxy. When not working directly on software, she enjoys dabbling in graphic design, fiber artistry, and woodworking.
