2022.08 Ensuring security of artificial pancreas device system using homomorphic encryption The privacy and security of a person’s health data is a human right protected by law in many countries. However, networked information systems that store and process health data may have security vulnerabilities and are attractive to attacks aimed to gain either unauthorized access to these data or compromise it. Compromising data of patients with chronic conditions like Diabetes Mellitus has potentially life-threatening consequences (e.g., from incorrect insulin dosing due to loss of glucose measurement data integrity). Consequently, privacy-preserving computing methods are called to mitigate the risk of a data breach. Haotian Weng, Chirath Hettiarachchi, Christopher Nolan, Hanna Suominen, Artem Lenskiy

2022.08.15 Secure human action recognition by encrypted neural network inference Advanced computer vision technology can provide near real-time home monitoring to support “aging in place” by detecting falls and symptoms related to seizures and stroke. Affordable webcams, together with cloud computing services (to run machine learning algorithms), can potentially bring significant social benefits. However, it has not been deployed in practice because of privacy concerns. In this paper, we propose a strategy that uses homomorphic encryption to resolve this dilemma, which guarantees information confidentiality while retaining action detection. Our protocol for secure inference can distinguish falls from activities of daily living with 86.21% sensitivity and 99.14% specificity, with an average inference latency of 1.2 seconds and 2.4 seconds on real-world test datasets using small and large neural nets, respectively. We show that our method enables a 613x speedup over the latency-optimized LoLa and achieves an average of 3.1x throughput increase in secure inference compared to the throughput-optimized nGraph-HE2.
