Free Webcast: Message Layer Security (MLS)


This webinar is presented by the Industry Network Technology Council.  You may go to this website to see future webinars and to download foils and recordings (when available) of past webinars.

Name: Asynchronous Group Message Security

Area: Message Layer Security (MLS)

Date: July 23, 2020

Time: 9:00am Pacific (11am Central, 12pm Eastern)

By: Dr. Britta Hale

The current protocols used for texting applications such as Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Signal, etc. are being revised.  One of the essential problem is that number of people in a group in such applications can only grow to be in the 200 - 300 person range.  With the new security protocol being developed at the IETF,  Message Layer Security (MLS),  this number can grow to be in the 50,000 or even 100,000 range in a group.

This will change the kind of new applications which are possible in the coming years.  The essence of MLS is secure group keying.  We may well see MLS used together with other protocols in the future.

Dr. Britta Hale has been very involved in the development of this new protocol.

Webinar Description:

Peer-to-peer group communication has long been a necessity for usability in team coordination. However, the security of such systems has not been well understood or investigated in comparison to one-to-one secure messaging options (such as Signal or even TLS). Based on an ongoing IETF standardization initiative, this presentation will introduce participants to the basic concepts of group messaging security, end-goals, and threat models – including “self-healing” security – and will prepare them to ask critical questions regarding group communication security and implementations.

Britta Hale is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Naval Postgraduate School working in cryptography and cybersecurity. Her specialization areas include analysis and design of cryptographic key exchange and authentication protocols. Hale is currently active in the design and IETF standardization of the MLS group messaging protocol, user-mediated protocol analysis, and hybrid post-quantum cryptography.

Recent papers include the first public research on detection of man-in-the-middle attackers in messaging protocols. Hale holds a PhD from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and a Master’s in Mathematics of Cryptography and Communications from Royal Holloway, Univ. of London.
