IEEE’s Privacy, Security, Trust conference (PST) was held here in Ottawa this year. The talks were an interesting mix ranging from very technical to public policy topics, including a keynote by Ann Cavoukian, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario. Dan, Alain, and Robert presented a paper on using eye-gaze as a tool to predict likely click-based graphical password click-points. Sonia taught a half-day tutorial introducing usable security and how to run usability evaluations.

ISSNet Summer School

Published by under Uncategorized

After SOUPS, we went directly to Vancouver for the 2nd annual ISSNet Summer School held at UBC. We had a week of tutorials on different security topics: Virtual Machine Monitors (VMM), Smart Phone Security, and Web Security. The academic work was combined with plenty of opportunity to get to know the other members of ISSNet. Our UBC hosts were great, and organized several of social events around the technical program.
