- Keynote from Baroness Pauline Neville Jones
- A research talk from Professor Kevin Jones, Head of Department of Computer Science:
Security policy myths and how science can help dispel them
"Many "good practices" in computer security are based on assumptions and local evidence that do not generalize. There are few quantifiable methods of establishing or refuting the validity of these practices from a user perspective. We propose a formal model of security policies that allows us to evaluate the claimed benefits to the user of the system quantitatively. We illustrate the use of the model by looking at a security policy we all live with daily: The Password Policy."
