Kiron Lebeck at Oakland 2017

Today Security Lab PhD student Kiron Lebeck presented at the 38th IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy (Oakland) in San Jose, CA. Kiron presented his paper “Security Augmented Reality Output”, describing a design for an augmented reality platform that mitigates risks from buggy or malicious application output (e.g., virtual content that obscures a user’s view of important physical world objects, like oncoming cars, or that startles a user). This work was done in collaboration with Security Lab undergraduate researcher Kimberly Ruth and faculty members Yoshi Kohno and Franzi Roesner. Congrats Kiron on a great presentation!
