ESORICS, Copenhagen, Denmark

Computer security is concerned with the protection of information in environments where there is a possibility of intrusion or malicious action. The aim of ESORICS is to further the progress of research in computer security by establishing a European forum for bringing together researchers in this area, by promoting the exchange of ideas with system developers and by encouraging links with researchers in related areas.

14.-16. September 2022

21th International Conference of the Biometrics Special Interest Group (BIOSIG 2022), Darmstadt

Biometrics provide efficient and reliable solutions to recognize individuals. With an increasing number of identity theft and miss-use incidents we do observe a significant fraud in e-commerce and thus growing interests on trustworthiness of person authentication. The BIOSIG 2022 conference addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications.

Black Hat USA 2022

Black Hat USA 2022 includes four days of training and a two-day main conference with several Briefings. The Black Hat Briefings provide computer security professionals a place to learn the very latest in information security risks, research, and trends. They cover everything from critical information infrastructure to widely used enterprise computer systems to the latest InfoSec research and development. The Briefings are vendor-neutral, allowing the presenters to speak candidly about real problems and potential solutions across both the public and private sectors. Our experts Dr. Haya Shulman, Dr. Michael Waidner, Philipp Jeitner and Elias Heftrig will talk about the topics of "DNSSEC Downgrade Attacks" and "Stalloris: RPKI Downgrade Attack".

ATHENE Lecture Series - Adrian Perrig

Imagining a new Internet architecture enables us to explore new networking concepts without the constraints imposed by the current infrastructure. What are the benefits of a multi-path inter-domain routing protocol that finds dozens of paths? What about a data plane without inter-domain forwarding tables on border routers? What secure systems can we build if a router can derive a symmetric key for any host on the Internet within nanoseconds?

In this presentation, we invite you to join us on our 12-year-long expedition of creating the SCION next-generation secure Internet architecture. SCION has already been deployed at several ISPs and domains, and has been in production use since 2017. On our journey, we have found that path-aware networking and multipath communication not only provide security benefits, but also enable higher efficiency for communication, increase network capacity, and can even provide opportunities for reducing the carbon footprint of communication.

The registration deadline is 07/14.


01.-02. March 2022

Security Research Event, Cité des sciences et de l'industrie - 30, avenue Corentin-Cariou - 75019 Paris

The 2022 edition of the Security Research Event will explore how security research contributes to the overall resilience of our society against disasters and crises. The conference will therefore take stock of the best practices identified during the COVID-19 crisis and, from this starting point, will look at how security research has been and will continue helping Europe to be better prepared and respond to this kind of dramatic situations.
