Announcement and Call for Abstracts

As the use of computer networks, and in particular the Internet, has increased, so has the potential threat to security. In the last several years, we have seen numerous security-related attacks on Netscape, Java, and the Internet protocols. New protocols and systems for electronic commerce, secure financial transactions, and other applications are being introduced, and are being deployed quickly, and on a large scale. This workshop aims to bring together theorists and practitioners working in areas related to network security in an informal setting to foster discussion regarding the nature of the threat and what we, as researchers, can do to help manage it.

This workshop will cover topics including, but not limited to:


Confirmed invited speakers (subject to change) include:
