Computer security trends and applications
Things move fast in the world of computer security, with new disruptive industry trends creating whole new worlds of security vulnerabilities. This talk presents a perspective on where we are and where we're going with the broad challenges we face. Since much of my recent work has been in the world of electronic voting security, we will particularly look at the world of elections as a crucible in which public policy and computer security have struggled with one another.
