Inria has discovered a new loophole in the TLS protocol, widely used to secure data exchanges over the Internet
On the 4th of March 2014, at the IETF 89 conference, a team of Inria researchers announced the discovery of a major security loophole in the TLS protocol. This protocol is the main security mechanism employed to protect communications over the Internet. Under certain circumstances, this weakness would allow hackers to steal the identities of users, particularly in banking and business networks. This loophole only affects a small number of Internet users and an update has already been released to address the problem. However, researchers at Inria are recommending that the TLS protocol be radically rewritten.
Yesterday, after months of talking with various software vendors, we publicly disclosed a new attack called SLOTH discovered by Gaetan Leurent and Karthikeyan Bhargavan (both INRIA Paris researchers : Team SECRET and Team PROSECCO).
After working on the WebCrypto Working Group at W3C/MIT , Harry Halpin joined the Prosecco team at INRIA Paris in January 2016. He coordinates the European NEXTLEAP project and its multi-disciplinary team.Its goal is to develop the securitymessagingprotocols of tomorrow for messaging and identity applications.

Machine learning classifiers are increasingly popular for security applications, and often achieve outstanding performance in testing. When deployed, however, classifiers can be thwarted by motivated adversaries who adaptively construct adversarial examples that are misclassified.

Cryptosense software finds and helps to fix security vulnerabilities caused by errors in the use of cryptography. Founded in Paris in 2013 as an INRIA Prosecco spin-off, during this talk I will explain how the project evolved from a pure research idea that attracted industry interest to a growing company with clients in financial services and government across Europe and North America. In particular I’ll focus on the differences between our original research prototype and the product we sell now, and what I see as the differences between running research projects as a « chargé de recherche » and running a start-up.
Prix et distinctions
This week, Karthikeyan Bhargavan (EPI Prosecco), has received one of the Microsoft Research Outstanding Collaborator awards. Congratulations !
The highlighted flaw, concerning major Internet security protocols - notably OpenVPN and TLS - was already known from a theoretical point of view, but two Inria researchers, Karthik Bhargavan (PROSECCO project team) and Gaëtan Leurent (SECRET project team) have just demonstrated that an attack where it is used as a point of entry is indeed possible.
European Research Council 2016
A graduate of the University of Saarland in Germany, Cătălin Hriţcu worked as a Research Associate at the University of Pennsylvania before joining Inria as a Researcher in 2013. He has just won a European Research Council (ERC) grant for 5 years. His ambition: to make formally secure compilation a reality.
