Want to visit   +70

Author: Stefan Schumacher

IT security is in a miserable state. The problems have been discussed again and again without advancing IT security. The speaker will give an overview of what is wrong with IT security and security research; he will show why cryptosystems really fail, what psychology knows about security, and what IT Sec has to do if it ever wants to break through the current difficulties and start generating more security.
