dc.descriptionNicholas Weaver received a B.A. in Astrophysics and Computer Science in 1995, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2003 both from the University of California at Berkeley. His primary research focus is on network security, notably worms, botnets, and other internet-scale attacks, and network measurement. Other areas have included both hardware acceleration and software parallelization of network intrusion detection, defenses for DNS resolvers, and tools for detecting ISP-introduced manipulations of a user's network connection.en_US

dc.description.abstractSix years ago Edward Snowden leaked a massive trove of internal NSA documents detailing the operation of the US government’s electronic surveillance system. The overall systems described a wide-ranging approach of remarkably banal systems: primarily a combination of repurposed network intrusion detection, big data, malicious code, bribery, a veritable army of lawyers, and more money than god. Overall the systems are abusive but remarkably not generally abused. They are also mostly build-able with relatively low effort by others. In fact, building a hobby “NSA inna box” was remarkably instructive at understanding both how the systems work and the remarkably low barrier to entry.en_US
