LEET 2010 Coming Up

By: Jose -

This year I again had the pleasure of serving on the LEET program committee, which let me view some excellent research from people around the world. This year’s submissions were very high quality, and this year’s LEET workshop looks to be a very valuable day for researchers in the field.

    Join us at the 3rd USENIX Workshop on Large-Scale Exploits and Emergent Threats, which will take place in San Jose, CA, on April 27, 2010. LEET ’10 will provide a unique forum for the discussion of threats to the confidentiality of our data, the integrity of digital transactions, and the dependability of the technologies we increasingly rely on.

    The program includes:

    • Keynote Address: “Why Don’t I (Still) Trust Anything?” by Jeff Moss, Founder, Black Hat and DEF CON
    • Invited Talk: “Naked Avatars and Other Cautionary Tales About MMORPG Password Stealers,” by Jeff Williams, Microsoft Malware Protection Center
    • Sessions on threat measurement and characterization, botnets, threat detection and mitigation, and more.

    Connect with the broad community of researchers and practitioners who focus on worms, bots, spam, spyware, phishing, DDoS, and the ever-increasing palette of large-scale Internet-based threats in fostering the development of preliminary work in this diverse area and stimulating discussion of thought-provoking ideas.
