PHDays VII Young School: Results Are In
For the sixth year in a row, Young School is being held as part of the Positive Hack Days forum. This program gives undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to share their research with a wide audience. Young School works this year will be included in the forum's research track, Spring Hack Tricks lightning talks, and security product analysis contest. A total of six works made the cut and will be presented by their authors at PHDays VII.
"Over the last several months we have been accepting works on a range of topics in the applied security field. We received a total of 18 proposals from India, Kazakhstan, and Russia. We were delighted to see some of the same applicants from previous years. Selection was performed by academic reviewers and the PHDays Young School program committee. The most interesting works for us were those that combined scientific rigor with experimentally confirmed proposed solutions," described Andrey Petukhov, member of the PHDays Young School program committee.
The six works to be presented at PHDays are:
- Vladislav Aleksandrov (ITMO University), Vasily Desnitsky. — "Energy depletion attack analysis: a case with wireless network devices"
- Roman Alfyorov (Demidov Yaroslavl State University), Andrey Gorokhov — "Protection against unauthorized access—which method is better?"
- Askar Dyusekeyev (State Technical Service of the Ministry of Information and Communications of the Republic of Kazakhstan) — "Ransomware analyzer"
- Anastasiya Parygina (Gumilyov Eurasian National University) — "Developing a Google Chrome extension to protect against information leakage through other browser extensions"
