Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association


Progress in the field of computer security is driven by a symbiotic relationship between our understandings 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.

The attendees were authors of accepted position papers/presentations as well as invited guests. A limited number of grants were available to assist presenters who might otherwise be unable to attend the workshop.

WOOT '08 was co-located with the 17th USENIX Security Symposium (USENIX Security '08), July 28–August 1, 2008.
