Computer security today advances at an exceptional rate, as both its operational relevance and the tension between attackers and defenders continue to grow. New services, new systems, and new networking architectures continually add new dimensions to the field and subvert previously held assumptions. This symposium offers cutting-edge research on topics that range from securing real systems through diagnosing the Net.

We've just expanded the training program. Now covering 3 days, the Security training program can help you learn the latest on such topics as:

Experts such as Richard Bejtlich, Ron Dodge, Dan Ragsdale, Rik Farrow, and Gary McGraw will give you the information, techniques, tools, and strategies you need to practice effective security today—and tomorrow.

Don't miss the keynote address by Butler W. Lampson of Microsoft and MIT: "Computer Security in the Real World."

The Invited Talks cover a number of highly relevant topics, including:

The 22 refereed papers present the best new research in a variety of subject areas, including RFID device analysis, managing secure networks, defenses, and building secure systems.

Join colleagues with similar interests for thought-provoking discussions at the evening Birds-of-a-Feather sessions. Get a preview of next year's news or present your own new work at the Work-in-Progress reports.

Whether you're a researcher, a system administrator, or a policy wonk, come to the 14th USENIX Security Symposium to find out how changes in computer security are going to affect you.

We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore, July 31–August 5, 2005.

For the Security '05 Program Committee,
Patrick McDaniel, Pennsylvania State University
Security '05 Program Chair
