5th Annual PKI R&D Workshop
"Making PKI Easy to Use"
Jointly sponsored by
and Internet2, in cooperation with
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.
