Scaling Security Practices: Automated Approaches to Eliminate Security Vulnerabilities
Taesoo Kim is a Catherine M. and James E. Allchin Early Career Assistant Professor in the School Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). He also serves as the director of the Georgia Tech Systems Software and Security Center (GTS3). He is genuinely interested in building a system that prioritizes security principles first and foremost. Those principles include the total design of the system, analysis of its implementation, elimination of certain classes of vulnerabilities, and clear separation of its trusted components. His thesis work, in particular, focused on detecting and recovering from attacks on computer systems, known as "undo computing." Taesoo holds a S.M. (2011) and a Ph.D. (2014) from MIT.
