Title: Finding and Fixing Security Vulnerabilities in Network Structures
The knowledge of network architecture and protocol structure of emerging network systems can be extremely useful for strong and stealthy attacks. In this talk, I will present two such recent examples. First, I will present our recent, powerful Bitcoin partitioning attack (IEEE S&P 2020), called an Erebus attack. The Erebus attack partitions the Bitcoin network without any routing manipulations, making the attack undetectable to control-plane and even to data-plane detectors. I will discuss how we have been collaborating with the Bitcoin Core team to address this attack and introduce a remaining open problem. In the second part of the talk, I will introduce our recent discovery of a new side channel vulnerability in modern cellular networks that enables unauthorized passive adversaries to accurately infer mobile users' location. We show that one fundamental technique used in all 4G/5G systems, called carrier aggregation, leaks location specific information of mobile users. We demonstrate this location inference attack on LTE networks in Singapore (e.g., 98.4％ of path-identification accuracy among 100 different paths in an office building).
