HotSec '08 was intended as a forum for lively discussion of aggressively innovative and potentially disruptive ideas in all aspects of systems security. Surprising results and thought-provoking ideas were strongly favored; complete papers with polished results in well-explored research areas were discouraged. Papers were selected for their potential to stimulate discussion in the workshop.
Attendance was by invitation only, limited to 3550 participants, with preference given to the authors of accepted position papers/presentations.
HotSec '08 was co-located with the 17th USENIX Security Symposium (USENIX Security '08), July 28August 1, 2008.
