NDSS Symposium 1997

10-11 February 1997 San Diego, California

Capture Immediate Market Exposure and Year-Long Recognition For Your Company by Becoming a Sponsor of NDSS'97

This fourth annual symposium will bring together researchers, implementors, and users of network and distributed system security technologies to discuss today's important security issues and challenges. It will provide a mix of technical papers and panel presentations that describe promising new approaches to security problems that are practical, and to the extent possible, have been implemented. We hope to foster the exchange of technical information and encourage the Internet community to deploy available security technologies and develop new solutions to unsolved problems.

Why You Should Attend

The use of the Internet is rapidly growing and expanding into all aspects of our society. Commercial organizations are coming under increasing pressure to make their services available on-line. This in turn is increasing the need for rapid and widespread deployment of usable and effective network and distributed system security technologies. High visibility attacks on the Internet underscore the vulnerabilities of the Internet and the need to solve its security problems. There is growing concern for securing the network infrastructure itself. Recent trends in software distribution (such as Java and ActiveX technologies) have made certain attacks easier to carry out. Privacy has become an important issue for the Internet.

NDSS '97 will bring together researchers, implementors, and users of network and distributed system technologies to discuss today's important security issues and challenges. We have selected the technical papers and panel presentations that describe promising new approaches to security problems that are practical, and to the extent possible, have been implemented. Topics to be addressed include Internet infrastructure and routing security, security for the World Wide Web, Java and ActiveX security, cryptographic protocols, public key management, and protection of privacy.

The symposium will have a positive impact on the state of Internet security. You will have the opportunity to actively participate in the dialog. Ask questions of the speakers, raise your important issues during the panel sessions, and let other participants know of your requirements, observations, and experience in this important area. We hope to encourage the wide-scale deployment of security technologies and to promote new research that can address the currently unmet security needs of the Internet community.

San Diego Princess Resort

Location

The Symposium venue is the San Diego Princess Resort, a tropical paradise on a forty-four acre island in Mission Bay, ten minutes from the international airport. Lush gardens landscaped with hundreds of species of tropical and subtropical plants are always ablaze with color and perfect for themed group events. Charming pathways wander among sparkling waterfalls, across quaint footbridges and sleepy lagoons filled with water lilies and waterfowl. A white sand beach curves around the island for over a mile, and the award-winning grounds encompass five swimming pools and six lighted tennis courts.

Spouses and family members can catch a convenient Harbor Hopper for a quick trip to Sea World. Plan to visit La Jolla, the world famous San Diego Zoo or Mexico, only 30 minutes by car or Trolley.
