 5th Annual PKI R&D Workshop


"Making PKI Easy to Use"

Jointly sponsored by NIH, NIST, and Internet2, in cooperation with OASIS

The mathematics of public key cryptography is delightful, and critical to online security, but we still have much to learn about applying it in the real world in ways that are easy for humans to understand and use. Come join with experts from NIST, NIH, private industry and universities around the world for our fifth workshop on overcoming the challenges. Peer-reviewed research papers will be interspersed with topical panels and invited talks during the two and a half day event. Learn from experts in the human factors of security. Attend the keynote address by Angela Sasse, a leading expert in usable and effective security who will discuss how much progress has been made in helping Johnny encrypt. Hear an invited talk from Kelvin Yiu, Microsoft's Lead Program Manager for Windows Security. Get an update from leaders in secure browser interfaces. Ask questions of panels on topics like Digital Signatures; Email security and DKIM; Standards updates on X.509, DNSSEC, Hashing and PK-INIT; Globus; Revocation; Federal PKI and E-authentication update; and Bridge to Bridge Interoperations. And as always, take advantage of the opportunity for informal networking. Please register by March 30.
