Abstract

The byproduct of today’s massive interconnectivity is that basically nothing and no-one is immune to cyber attacks any longer. Sadly, this can be demonstrated rather trivially. It is therefore not surprising that there is no other research area in computer science with as much social and political impact as computer security. We all know that ‘perfect security’ does not exist. However, when it comes to our IT security research agenda we forget this and dedicate our energies to delivering ‘provably secure’ technology. This a limiting factor: including insecurity in our security research is a great challenge which will open new application areas. Taking advantage of this multidisciplinary terrain, ‘Nice to Know’ talks about old lessons we have not learned in the past and a few crucial challenges we have to tackle in the future, both in research and in education.
