Talk Title

Security of Graphs

Talk Abstract

Graph data is on the rise. Graph-structured data have information embedded in the vertices as well as the edges, paths and other graph-structures. Security and privacy assurance of graph data expressing sensitive information is essential. However, there are several research challenges to be addressed towards this problem. In this talk, we will go over the host of work we have carried out on graph security: Hashing, HMACs for graphs, digital signatures as well as self-encrypting graphs.
