Our work "DoS Exploitation of Allen-Bradley's Legacy Protocol through Fuzz Testing"is appearing at the Industrial Control System Security Workshop (ICSS) co-located with ACSAC'17 in Orlando, Florida. Franciso will be presenting our work, now that DHS has cleared all the details through responsible disclosure. Good luck, Cisco!
My student Francisco's thesis work turned into a CVE. Well, its reserved as CVE-2017-7924 and may take some time to go up, but its discussed in DHS-ICS advisory ICSA-17-138-03. Our first CVE. Its a modest little single-packet DoS attack against the MicroLogix 1100, but pretty exciting for us!
Update: Francisco had a little news article about him written-up by his alma mater. Awesome job, Cisco!

I recently helped SSU become a member of the Academic Alliance of the National Center for Women & Information Technology. Our goal is for our SSU's CS population to reflect SSU's diversity. As a step toward this goal, I am the PI on a CSU CRT grant related to improvements of our introductory CS course, intended to address factors contributing to an achievement gap. I am excited to begin this important work and join this tremendous community.
My student Grayson Blanks presented at the CS Colloquium with his own research project, exploring the performance of a parallelized PRNG test suite that is under development. I'm excited to see Zhibin Zhang's prior thesis work from NPS evolve into Grason's work at SSU -- in particular, I'm really impressed to see an undergrad at SSU continuing the work of my former Master's thesis students. Grayson's talk is below.more ...
