This analysis provides an overview of recent measures regarding Huawei by eight of Canada’s closest economic and political partners: the United States, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Japan. This encapsulates the informally-named “Five Eyes” intelligencesharing...
By eavesdropping on a user's query in a sensor network, an adversary can deduce both the user's current location and his/her location of interest. Issuing k queries instead of one (our "k-query" scheme) protects the privacy of the user's location of interest, but facilitates the adversary...
Most modern smartphones are equipped with barometer sensors. Accessing barometers does not require any permission or user notification, as it is deemed to be harmless. We show, however, that by simply reading low-rate barometer's samples, any background application can detect user's finger taps...
Intermediation and Governance of Digital Flows: Canadian Internet Service Providers as Instruments of Public PolicyDownload
The internet has often had a disintermediating effect, 'disrupting' and circumventing traditional middlemen and gatekeepers. This dissertation examines the related trend of intermediation, or the ascendance of new internet intermediaries and their growing significance in our lives. Among these...
Web security has become a critical issue due to the rising reliance of people on diverse types of online transactions. A CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart) is a security mechanism that is widely used to maintain the security of web services by...
A CAPTCHA is an automatically generated test designed to distinguish between humans and computer programs; specifically, they are designed to be easy for humans but difficult for computer programs to pass in order to prevent the abuse of resources by automated bots. They are commonly seen...
Herein, we propose generating CAPTCHAs through random field simulation and give a novel, effective and efficient algorithm to do so. Indeed, we demonstrate that sufficient information about word tests for easy human recognition is contained in the site marginal probabilities and the...
SSHRC Awarded Invited PG (stage 2) 2015: The objective of the Canadian Network for Research on Terrorism, Security and Society (TSAS) is to develop the sound empirical data and theoretical insights needed to support effective, legally responsible, and socially engaged counter-terrorism policies...
The Olympic Games are now characterized by overt displays of military personnel and hardware, the deployment of new surveillance technologies and policing techniques, and rapidly escalating budgets. Yet, most research on security at these urban events has been confined to the sociology of sport...
