Sponsored by USENIX, The Advanced Computing Systems Association
Progress in the field of computer security is driven by a symbiotic relationship between our understanding of attack and of defense. The USENIX Workshop on Offensive Technologies aimed to bring together researchers and practitioners in system security to present research advancing the understanding of attacks on operating systems, networks, and applications.
Attendance was by invitation only, with preference given to the authors of accepted position papers/presentations. A limited number of grants were available to assist presenters who might otherwise be unable to attend the workshop.
Find out more about WOOT '07 in a recent Network World article featuring an interview with Tal Garfinkel, one of the program chairs, and join the Slashdot discussion about the workshop.
WOOT '07 was co-located with the 16th USENIX Security Symposium (USENIX Security '07), August 610, 2007.
