Panel: The New Security Paradigms Experience

Moderator: Carrie Gates and Cormac Herley

The New Security Paradigms Workshop provides a forum for discussing some of the most fundamental, challenging, and controversial issues in computer security. NSPW.s unique character, however, arises not so much from the topics presented but from how NSPW attendees discuss them: they aggressively question presenters and provide copious amounts of constructive feedback. This friendly debate forces authors to refine their arguments, leading to better publications and, we believe, wiser authors. This panel will bring two papers from NSPW to ACSAC, who will get a feel for the freewheeling and participatory nature of NSPW, as well as unscripted and vigorous discussions of important problems and unusual proposals in security.
