An Invitation from the Program Chair

Dear Colleague,

The field of computer security is evolving at a phenomenal rate. New services, new systems, and new networking architectures continuously add new dimensions to the field and completely change previously held assumptions. This symposium addresses cutting-edge research ranging in topics from making ordinary programs more robust through protecting whole networks against worms and denial of service attacks.

Want to hear about new ideas for adding security hooks to software systems? Learn about sandboxing malicious applications? Understand how to secure new web services? Curious about privacy issues or dealing with law enforcement? Come to the 2002 USENIX Security Symposium and find out about these topics and many more.

Learn the latest techniques, best tools and effective strategies from the experts at our Security tutorials — over half of which are new including: Building Honey Pots, IPSs, Unix Security Solutions, Building Secure Software and others.

Keynote speaker Whitfield Diffie, co-inventor of public key cryptography and a distinguished engineer at Sun Microsystems, will talk about security policy and challenges for the 21st century.

From the Invited Talks, find out how common security systems fail; how to validate and test security designs; how to make biometrics authentication work; legal aspects of the DMCA; and much more.

Join colleagues with similar interests for stimulating discussions at the evening Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. In the Work-in-Progress sessions, get a preview of next year's news, or present fledgling work of your own and get feedback from the audience.

Whether you're a researcher, a system administrator, or a policy wonk, come find out how computer security is going to affect you in the future.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco, August 5-9, 2002.

Dan Boneh
