This year, I have the pleasure of chairing the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Hot Topics in Security, an invitation-only workshop that provides a forum for leading security researchers to discuss current trends and new research ideas. At the program committee meeting in Mountain View, we selected 13 out of 37 papers for the final program. It's pretty hot. Here are some of the talks I am looking forward to:
- Towards Application Security on Untrusted Operating Systems
- Defeating Deniable File Systems: A TrueCrypt Case Study
- Panic Passwords: Authenticating under Duress
- Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder: New Directions for Implantable Medical Device Security
HotSec is taking place on July 29th, one day before the technical program of the USENIX Security Symposium. The keynote for USENIX Security is going to be exciting: Debra Bowen, the California Secretary of State, is speaking on Dr. Strangevote or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Paper Ballot.
See you there,
