Duke researchers create video conferencing app to prevent security leaks
Duke researchers have programmed an app that allows users to control what their audiences can see during a video conferencing call.
Users that are participating in video conferencing calls can draw rectangular markers around the segments of the scene that they want to make public, telling the software to black out the excluded regions, explained Animesh Srivastava, a graduate student and one of the co-authors of the study. The app was designed to prevent accidental security leaks during video conferencing calls.
Srivastava cited an example of such a leak, which occurred during a 2014 Superbowl game.
