Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC) 2023

Keynote: Computer Security in the Age of Large Language Models

This talk considers what it means to study computer security in this new age of large language models. How will these models be used? What new tasks will they solve? What new vulnerabilities are introduced when language models are deployed in these ways? How can language models help solve existing security problems? Or will they give a stronger advantage to adversaries who can now use them to automate attacks?
