Facilitating Trust on Data through Provenance [chapter]

Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Paul Groth, Herbert Bos
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Research on trusted computing focuses mainly on the security and integrity of the execution environment, from hardware components to software services. However, this is only one facet of the computation, the other being the data. If our goal is to produce trusted results, a trustworthy execution environment is not enough: we also need trustworthy data. Provenance of data plays a pivotal role in ascertaining trustworthiness of data. In our work, we explore how to use state-ofthe-art systems

Trade-Offs in Automatic Provenance Capture [chapter]

Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Hasanat Kazmi, Hashim Sharif, Remco Vermeulen, Ashish Gehani, Herbert Bos, Paul Groth
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Automatic provenance capture from arbitrary applications is a challenging problem. Different approaches to tackle this problem have evolved, most notably a. system-event trace analysis, b. compiletime static instrumentation, and c. taint flow analysis using dynamic binary instrumentation. Each of these approaches offers different trade-offs in terms of the granularity of captured provenance, integration requirements, and runtime overhead. While these aspects have been discussed separately, a

To fill this gap, we begin to explore these trade-offs for representative examples of these approaches for automatic provenance capture by means of evaluation and measurement. We base our evaluation on UnixBench-a widely used benchmark suite within systems research. We believe this approach will make our results easier to compare with future studies.

Full-system, deterministic record and replay has proven to be an invaluable tool for reverse engineering and systems analysis. However, acquiring a full-system recording typically involves signifcant planning and manual effort. This represents a distraction from the actual goal of recording a trace, i.e. analyzing it. We present PANDAcap, a framework based on PANDA full-system record and replay tool. PANDAcap combines off-the-shelf and custom-built components in order to streamline the process

More importantly, in addition to making the setup of oneoff experiments easier, PANDAcap also caters to the streamlining of systematic repeatable experiments in order to create PANDA trace datasets. As a demonstration, we have used PANDAcap to deploy an ssh honeypot aiming to study the actions of brute-force ssh attacks.

Decoupling Provenance Capture and Analysis from Execution

Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Paul Groth, Herbert Bos
2015 Workshop on the Theory and Practice of Provenance  
Capturing provenance usually involves the direct observation and instrumentation of the execution of a program or workflow. However, this approach restricts provenance analysis to pre-determined programs and methods. This may not pose a problem when one is interested in the provenance of a well-defined workflow, but may limit the analysis of unstructured processes such as interactive desktop computing. In this paper, we present a new approach to capturing provenance based on full execution

Looking Inside the Black-Box: Capturing Data Provenance Using Dynamic Instrumentation [chapter]

Manolis Stamatogiannakis, Paul Groth, Herbert Bos
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Knowing the provenance of a data item helps in ascertaining its trustworthiness. Various approaches have been proposed to track or infer data provenance. However, these approaches either treat an executing program as a black-box, limiting the fidelity of the captured provenance, or require developers to modify the program to make it provenance-aware. In this paper, we introduce DataTracker, a new approach to capturing data provenance based on taint tracking, a technique widely used in the

Our system is able to identify data provenance relations through dynamic instrumentation of unmodified binaries, without requiring access to, or knowledge of, their source code. Hence, we can track provenance for a variety of well-known applications. Because DataTracker looks inside the executing program, it captures high-fidelity and accurate data provenance.

Rapid advances in modern networking technologies and commodity high performance computing systems are leading the field of computing in a new paradigm referred to as network-based computing (NC). This paradigm views a large number of geographically distributed computer resources such as PCs, workstations, Symmetric Multi-processors (SMP) and Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) systems connected through a high speed network as a single meta-computer or computational grid [2] . In this paper, we

We present various implementations of the NC paradigm using commodity and customized software in the context of the existing PELLPACK problem solving environment [8], the ITPACK library as it has been implemented in the PELLPACK system, and a muti-physics application for the design of gas turbine engines [11] . Through this study we attempt to assess the feasibility and efficiency of several NC paradigms for scientific applications utilizing existing middleware.
