The current Internet world rely on the by-default principle that the network is secure! Blockchain, Encryption, ... all technologies subject to secure Internet, We will review different situations which demonstrate that technologies create the issues not because of the technologie but due to their implementation - and will start to elaborate few direction for improving the situation
Dr. Pierre DANDJINOU
VP Stakeholder Engagement, ICANN.
VP Stakeholder Engagement,
Pierre Dandjinou is ICANN's Vice President of Stakeholder Engagement for the Africa region, and has held the position since December 2012. He coordinates outreach, support and engagement with all stakeholders, including governments, civil society and private sector in the Africa region.
He has also held roles as Director at INFOCOM Intelligence, Chairman at AfriNIC, E-Governance Advisor at the United Nations Development Program, and the President of the ISOC Benin Chapter. In November 2012, he was appointed as ICANN's Vice Presidents for Stakeholder Engagement for Africa, a position that reports to Sally Costerton and is part of CEO Fadi Chehadé's goal to expand ICANN outreach and involvement to the developing world and improve the international makeup of the organization.
Pierre was a Regional Policy Advisor on ICT for Development at SURF/UNDP, Africa. He served as a Programme Officer for UNDP (1997-2000); in this position, he coordinated the Africa node of the Sustainable Development Networking Programme (SDNP).
Pierre is involved with many IT related initiatives on the continent, and is a member of various Advisory Committees including AfriNIC, the At-Large Advisory Committee at ICANN, and the Global Internet Policy Initiative.
Pierre’s current specific areas of interest are e-strategies, e-governance and e-Parliaments as means for fostering use of ICTs for human development in Africa
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) plays a specific, technical role, acting in the global public interest as the trusted steward of the Internet’s unique identifier systems. We coordinate parts of the Domain Name System (DNS), which translates computer hostnames into IP addresses, as well as the Internet Protocol addressing system used to route Internet traffic. In short ICANN is an important part of the system that helps people connect to each other online.
This system can be put to danger if appropriate measures are not taken, as can be seen in recent attacks. DNS abuse and DNS misuses can be parts of these threats of the system. Our presentation will focus on what is DNS abuse, provide examples of DNS abuses and explain the evolving DNS threat landscape. Securing the DNS for a robust and secure and interoperable Internet constitutes ICANN contribution to fighting cyberthreats and the presentation will enlighten on current ICANN technical actions in that regards.

With the rise of IoT market, more and more applications rely on software cryptography. Most of the time, the cryptography is strong against cryptanalysis, but weak in terms of physical attacks. In this talk, I'll explain how side-channel attacks threaten the security of such products. In particular, I'll compare the horizontal (cache-timing) and vertical (electromagnetic) side-channel analyses.

Cryptography plays a central role in facilitating data transformation, digital communication and transactions. In order to protect sensitive information against malicious attacks, it is crucial to take various important steps. The most efficient steps rely on cryptography. We will consider some effective situations to show that cryptography is of critical importance to effective cyber security and digital trust."

Jean-Louis Roch received the M.Eng. degree in from the “École Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique et de Mathématiques Appliquées (ENSIMAG)”, Grenoble, France, in 1986 and the Ph.D. degree in applied Mathematics from Grenoble INP, Grenoble, France in 1989. He is currently professor at ENSIMAG and rechercher at VERIMAG Lab. In 2017 his appointed as Director of ENSIMAG.
Within team PACSS at VERIMAG laboratory from March 2016, his research focus on provably secure distributed, parallel and interactive computations. Especially, he participates to Research and Development project with Industry in the context of both clouds (data and computations outsourcing, eg SHIVA or Incas-ITSec) and critical infrastructures (eg ARAMIS). He is also involved in the SCCyPhy: Security and Cryptology for CyberPhysical systems of LabEx Persyval-LAB.
Previously, within laboratory LIG <2006-2016> (and previously laboratories ID-IMAG <1999-2006>, LMC-IMAG <1991-1999> and TIM3 <1986-1990>), his research has largely been in the interaction of parallel algorithms and their programming on parallel and/or distributed architectures, from embedded or multicore systems to grid and cloud computing infrastructures. In the framework of the Inria LIG MOAIS team-project (2005-2015), he studied adaptive parallel algorithms and their scheduling in the context of interactive applications, on multi-processor system on chips (MPSoCs) and also on security and fault-tolerance on large scale platforms.

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are used to monitor and control a physical process such as energy production and distribution, water cleaning or transport systems. Security of such systems is often critical and becomes a priority for governmental agencies. Beyond confidentiality or authentication of communication, guaranteeing integrity and availability is a main issue. For example, the reordering or deletion of some commands can cause the system to enter an unsafe state. Classically stateless and stateful integrity properties are distinguished. Focusing on real industrial protocols MODBUS and OPC-UA, we formalize flow integrity properties and overview off-line verification and on-line filtering tools.
