Today's information systems and networks have been extraordinarily successful in bringing new capabilities to homes, businesses, schools, and governments. But society's eagerness to gain these capabilities at the lowest possible initial cost have led to systems that are vulnerable to a variety of attacks and provide relatively poor accountability for the information flowing through them. This talk will describe the background, motivation, and the current projects in a program of research that aims to improve both the defensibility of large scale systems and the accountability of the information flowing through them. The technologies involved cover a broad range, from techniques that support tying a computation to a particular silicon chip to assuring that routers are configured in accordance with specified policies to detecting and remediating memory corruption attacks to renewing the Internet.
