WSF08 - The 2008 edition
The theory of computer security perhaps dates back to the 1970s, when the basics of asymmetrics crypto were laid down. But `real' computer security issues only began to be understood in the subsequent decade, though proper computer security expertise is perhaps not younger than the early 1990s. Still, this makes it two decades of researchers' thinking and... it is meaningful to wonder where we are now, what the current balance is. Have we reached satisfactory awareness that security is vital to common computer usage? To begin with, do we really understand security nowadays? The answers appear to sway between mobile ad-hoc networks and widespread privacy, between service-oriented architectures and many, many other niches.
