Mobility, Ubiquity and Security
Auskunft zu diesem Dagstuhl Seminar erteilt
"Wie werden Handys sicherer?" 12.02.07(German only)
Increasing code mobility and ubiquity raises serious concerns about the security of modern computing infrastructures. The focus of this seminar was on securing computing systems by design and construction.
- automotive industry
- web browsers
- distributed systems
- media distribution
- data mining
The need for security in these applications is critical. The seminar structure reflected the general categories of security properties that are required in scenarios as above. Each category served as a theme for presentations on each of the first four days of the seminar. Each of these days was kicked off by a tutorial talk.
Thanks to Dagstuhl's stimulating environment, many insightful discussions, planned and unplanned, took place. There were two large organized discussion, where all participants were involved: a panel on electronic voting (e-voting) and a general discussion.
With a top-of-the-line collection of invitees placed in Dagstuhl's productive environment, it may seem that little could have gone wrong with the seminar. Still, the we are fully satisfied that our efforts on organizing the meeting have been rewarded by a seminar with a clear focus; good balance between talks, panels, and discussions; and rich cross-fertilization that have already resulted in new collaborations.
