NDSS Symposium 2023: 30 Years of Cutting Edge Network Security Research
By Kevin Meynell. The 30th edition of the Network and Distributed Systems Security (NDSS) Symposium kicks off 27 February in San Diego, USA. The post NDSS Symposium 2023: 30 Years of Cutting Edge Network Security Research appeared first on Internet Society.
The Network and Distributed Systems Security (NDSS) Symposium reaches an important milestone this year, with the 30th edition of the event taking place from 27 February to 3 March 2023 in San Diego, USA. The Internet Society hosted the initial Privacy and Security Research Group (PSRG) Workshop on Network and Distributed System Security 10-12 February 1993. This evolved into the Network and Distributed Systems Security Symposium and has been proudly hosted by the Internet Society in San Diego in the 30 years since.
An incubator of ideas, the NDSS Symposium brings together leading academics, industry researchers, students, and security practitioners to discuss top-tier, peer-reviewed research and exchange ideas. The recordings of every paper presentation and the papers themselves are made available online for anyone to view to support collaborative research.
The Symposium continues to be one of the top conferences for computer and network security research, and more than 560 attendees are expected to participate both in-person and virtually. NDSS 2023 has a full agenda featuring 2 keynotes, 94 accepted papers, 40 posters, and a 30th anniversary retrospective from Tuesday, 28 February to Thursday, 2 March 2023. In addition, there will be eight co-located events on the Monday before, and the Friday after, the main symposium focusing on specific areas of network security research.
The Symposium is honored to have two distinguished speakers providing the keynotes. Richard Ford (Praetorian) will open the symposium on Tuesday with a talk focused on ChatGPT, what this means for machine learning for cybersecurity and privacy, and whether this will benefit defenders or provide new vectors for attackers. Nina Taft (Google) will provide the Wednesday keynote that will discuss the challenges faced by developers with respect to continually evolving privacy laws, policies and user preferences, and the use of Natural Language Processing techniques that can automatically analyze privacy polices to help address this.
Throughout the week, there will be eight co-located events:
- The inaugural Symposium on Vehicle Security and Privacy (VehicleSec 2023) builds upon the Automotive and Autonomous Vehicle Security (AutoSec) Workshop that has previously been held during the NDSS Symposium for the past four years. The workshop will discuss the security and privacy issues related to the on-board systems of ground, aerial, underwater and space vehicles, their supporting infrastructures, and associated technologies.
- The inaugural Workshop on Security of Space and Satellite Systems (SpaceSec 2023) will be the first academic workshop co-located with the NDSS Symposium dedicated to the security of satellite systems. It aims to raise awareness of attack vectors and vulnerabilities in the light of major attacks on the ViaSat network and ongoing disruptions of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS).
- The 2nd International Workshop on Ethics in Computer Security (EthiCS 2023) will discuss the increasingly important question of ethics in computer security research. There are often unclear guidelines and review processes, and this workshop aims to provide an international forum for raising awareness and exchanging perspectives to support the development of new guidelines for future ethical security research.
