Developing Secure Systems Summit – Online Seminar Series: Fall 2020


Join the ongoing conversation on the DS3 YouTube Channel!

The state of the art in developing secure computer systems is advancing rapidly, with progress in several communities around the world spanning the software industry, academia, research labs, and governments.

The Developing Secure Systems Summit (DS3) seeks to establish a new meeting ground for researchers and practitioners across these communities. Our goal is to share progress and stimulate further work on approaches that “build security in” to existing and new computing systems.

DS3 aims to be an inclusive event, building on several existing communities to forge its identity. On the one hand, we aim to reach out to the security research community that congregates at flagship events like IEEE Security and Privacy, the USENIX Security Symposium, and the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security. Equally, we seek to connect with the open source and industrial software security community that gathers around events like the Linux Security Summits, ShmooCon, BlueHat, and Real World Crypto. Additionally, we hope to interest others whose works are underrepresented at existing venues.
