Memory safety issues remain endemic in cybersecurity and are often seen as a never-ending source of cyber vulnerabilities. Recently the topic has increased in prominence with the White House Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD) releasing a request for comments on how to strengthen the open-source ecosystem. But what exactly is memory safety? This blog describes the historical antecedents in computing that helped create one aspect of today’s insecure cyber ecosystem. There will be no quick fixes, but there is encouraging progress towards addressing these long-standing security issues.
Recent discussions of AI have focused on safety, reliability, and other risks. Lost in this debate is the real need to secure AI against malicious actors. This blog post applies lessons from traditional cybersecurity to emerging AI-model risks.
Artificial intelligence systems are rapidly being deployed in all sectors of the economy, yet significant research has demonstrated that these systems can be vulnerable to a wide array of attacks. How different are these problems from more common cybersecurity vulnerabilities? What legal ambiguities do they create, and how can organizations ameliorate them? This report, produced in collaboration with the Program on Geopolitics, Technology, and Governance at the Stanford Cyber Policy Center, presents the recommendations of a July 2022 workshop of experts to help answer these questions.
CSET's Josh A. Goldstein was recently quoted in a WIRED article about state-backed hacking groups using fake LinkedIn profiles to steal information from their targets. Goldstein provides insight by highlighting the issues in the disinformation space.
A report by CSET's Josh Goldstein, Micah Musser, and CSET alumna Katerina Sedova in collaboration with OpenAI and Stanford Internet Observatory was cited in an article published by Grid. The report examines the potential misuse of language models for influence operations in the future and proposes a structure for evaluating possible solutions to this problem.
