 Our Review

MATE (Man-At-the-End), which I consider as an attacking paradigm, is where an opponent may access and watch his/her victim’s target software and/or hardware environment, in order to collect secrets, like encryption keys or confusion, with the possible purpose of compromise or backdoor insertion. An assault on a stolen smartphone or software using protection to deliver premium content and/or services such as paid TV channels is a typical example of such a situation. Sounds fascinating stuff and we’d encourage you to get involved!

Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, May 27th 2021, or created by us.

The CheckMATE workshop will be collocated with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) 2021.

MATE (Man-At-The-End) is an attacker model where an adversary has access to the target software and/or hardware environment of his victim and the ability to observe and modify it in order to extract secrets such as cryptographic keys or sensitive information, possibly with the subsequent goal of compromising code integrity or inserting backdoors, among others. A typical example of such a scenario is the case of an attack on a stolen smartphone or against software leveraging protection to offer premium content and/or features such as paid TV channels.

The main focus of CheckMATE is on new models and techniques to defend software from tampering, reverse engineering, and piracy as well as to the development of new attack strategies that highlight the need for more complete defenses.
