Security BoF: What Are Our Community's Open Issues?
Time 01/15/13 03:30PM-05:00PM
"One never notices what has been done; one can
only see what remains to be done." (Marie Curie,
the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, from
a 1984 letter to her brother)...
This cybersecurity BoF will be a little different
than many BoFs in that our focus will be primarily
on identifying "open issues," or "what remains to
be done" in the cybersecurity area.
For example, if cyber security is to be
considered a scientific discipline, and bots are
core to threats such as distributed denial of
service attacks and spam, isn't it a bit
surprising that we really have no solid
measurements when it comes to the percentage of
hosts that are botted, either here in the United
States or in other countries abroad?
For a field that some might call "mature," we
believe that a surprising amount of very
fundamental security research remains to be done.
Come to this BoF and help us to identify a
prioritized community cyber security agenda and
roadmap, for use by both cyber security
communities of practitioners and cyber
security academic researchers.
