  3. Keynote: Securing Internet Applications from Routing Attacks

    Attacks on Internet routing are typically viewed through the lens of availability and confidentiality, assuming an adversary that either discards traffic or performs eavesdropping. Yet, a strategic adversary can use routing attacks to compromise the security of critical Internet applications likeTor, certificate authorities, and the bitcoin network. In this paper, we survey such application-specific routing attacks and argue that both application-layer and network-layer defenses are essential and urgently needed. While application-layer defenses are easier to deploy in the short term, we hope that our work serves to provide much needed momentum for the deployment of network-layer defenses.

  4. A Thorough Comparison of Delta Lake, Iceberg and Hudi

    Recently, a set of modern table formats such as Delta Lake, Hudi, Iceberg spring out. Along with Hive Metastore these table formats are trying to solve problems that stand in traditional data lake for a long time with their declared features like ACID, schema evolution, upsert, time travel, incremental consumption etc. This talk will share the research that we did for the comparison about the key features and design these table format holds, the maturity of features, such as APIs expose to end user, how to work with compute engines and finally a comprehensive benchmark about transaction, upsert and mass partitions will be shared as references to audiences.

  5. Digital public sphere - From gated platforms to the fediverse

    New advancements and evolved technologies always affected society. This talk discusses the inquiry to what extent fediverse has an influence on changes in the public sphere. In addition, this lecture will address the question of how the rising fediverse is a transition from antagonism to agonism.

    • Does changing from gated platforms to fediverse support a pluralistic culture? • What is the likelihood that larger instances will represent a coherent implementation in terms of standards such as ActivityPub? • How does blocking (particularly blocks between instances) impact this adjustment in public sphere? • Why do we need a specific measure of blocking and which limits do they confine?

  6. The database is the protocol. Reflections on a 20 year tradition of re-inventing the wheel.

    From UseNet to ActivityPub, every protocol solves the same problems over again.

    • How do we discover nodes?
    • How do we deal with network partitions?
    • How do we define bad behavior and how do we prevent it?

    The algorithms which solve these problems are present in almost every decentralized protocol. They are also famous for being very difficult to get right!

    In this lecture I will to propose an alternative. Why can’t we let the database do the replication and stick to writing the rules? When a node is a finite state automaton, all we need is an SQL-like language to define the set of all legal state transitions.

  7. Let’s Play and Win Our Own Game

    As creators of federated social software, we have a choice: we can compete with social media giants on their own terms, or we can play our own game, one that’s impossible for the giants to play in the first place. If we want to do the latter, we need to identify the fundamental assumptions that constrain the giants and ask ourselves what we can do when we throw those assumptions out entirely.

    In this talk, I am going to try and inspire you to make things that would be literally impossible to make on the centralized web. I am going to talk about both the advantages and disadvantages of doing this kind of thing. Expect to hear concrete examples of software that already exists, and also examples of software that could conceivably exist in the very near future.
