  • CSE-4 ASR Attack

    Faculty Advisor: Rui Hu, College of Engineering assistant professor

    Students: Jacob Ayers, Kristian Konstantinov, Cody Long, Zach Strazi

    Technology has advanced over the past 20 years to the point where many devices use smart voice technology. These devices rely on Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) to identify keywords and phrases that trigger their functionality. Our project aims to create Adversarial Examples (AE) that can be played concurrently while an auditory command is given to ASR devices, causing them to misclassify the given command. By first getting logits from LibriSpeech audio files and perturbing them by a fraction, using a Kenansville-based untargeted attack, we will create our adversarial examples and attack the various Wav2Vec2 models to determine how efficient the AEs are at causing a misclassification. We will then test our AEs on Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) like Google and Amazon Alexa to cause a misclassification in a given command. To deliver the attacks, the team plans on using a Raspberry Pi device to listen for the trigger phrase and play the AE at the same time a user gives a command. The ASR device then will receive the user input as well as the AE simultaneously and misclassify the command.

  • CSE-8 DeadDrop

    Students: Jann Arellano, Brian Buslon, Keaton Clark, Lloyd Gonzales

    DeadDrop is a command and control (C2) framework used in post-exploitation activities and penetration testing to create malware payloads, manage compromised devices and generate operational reports. DeadDrop's primary purpose is to aid legitimate security professionals (the "red team") in an activity known as penetration testing, which assesses a company's ability to defend against attacks and protect its data. Penetration tests often are coordinated using C2 frameworks, which significantly simplifies managing infected devices while ensuring accountability for actions taken by the red team. Using a C2 framework in testing greatly benefits security engineers (the "blue team"), as they can identify opportunities through the reporting and logging functionality provided by the C2 framework. However, unlike existing frameworks, DeadDrop focuses on leveraging features in legitimate websites such as YouTube and Wikipedia to communicate with devices and exfiltrate data, masking its activity within the noise of popular websites. Messages (dead drops) can be placed on external services by one device, which can be retrieved by the other device by accessing the external service. By abusing the "trust" behind large, well-known websites, DeadDrop provides security engineers with new insight into identifying covert attacker techniques and security weaknesses.

    To Be Delivered aims to be a hybrid of locally hosting a personal storage server and a cloud storage solution. This is done to provide the convenience of using a cloud storage service while protecting user privacy. User privacy is important because it is a fundamental right and users should be able to easily transfer files between their devices without anyone being able to look at them. This is done by encrypting files before they are sent (only the user has the key) which means even if the files are intercepted, their contents will be unreadable to anyone except the owner.


  • CSE-15 Whisker Fish

    The Linguistic Analysis & Stylometry Suite, also known as LASS, is a set of tools designed around the concept of author attribution and stylometry. In a world where it is increasingly easier for threat actors to stay anonymous online, this project can help identify threat actors based on their writing style. It also can provide some tools to help with anonymity, there being legitimate reasons to be anonymous (such as whistleblowing). While the idea of using a piece of writing to de-anonymize threat actors is not new, as shown with the field of forensic linguistics, we hope that this tool will help advance this field as well as being something that is open source and accessible to anyone. There are also other uses and tools in this project such as predicting that someone is an author of a text in general based on past writings or a tool that will rephrase text to appear to be styled by another person.
