Alptekin Küpçü
Assistant Professor at KOÇ University, Turkey

Title: Secure Data Outsourcing

Time: April 29th, 09:15 am - 10:15 am

Abstract: As many services are moving to the cloud, we are losing control of our own data. This constitutes one of the biggest problems that we face in this decade. In this talk, I will first describe various cloud scenarios and services, including cloud storage and databases, and searching within them. I will briefly present the problems and current solutions to them, highlighting techniques to know to understand and improve current solutions, as well as open problems.

Biography: Alptekin Küpçü received his Ph.D. degree from Brown University Computer Science Department in 2010. Since then, he has been working as an assistant professor at KOÇ University, and leading the Cryptography, Security & Privacy Research Group he has founded. His research mainly focuses on applied cryptography, and its intersection with cloud security, privacy, peer-to-peer networks, and game theory and mechanism design. He has also led the development of the Brownie Cashlib cryptographic library, which is available as open source online. Dr. Küpçü has various accomplishments including 3 patents granted, 7 funded research projects (for 5 of which he was the principal investigator), 2 European Union COST Action management committee memberships, 2 KOÇ University Teaching Innovation Awards, and the Royal Society Newton Advanced Fellowship.
