FORWARD in “Future of Trust in Computing” Conference

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

The Future of Trust in Computing Conference took place in Berlin from June 30th to July 3rd 2008. FORWARD participated in the conference with a paper titled “Future threats to future trust” which was presented by Sotiris Ioannidis from FORTH-ICS. The presentation evolved around the results of the 1st FORWARD Workshop and the established working groups.

The FORWARD paper seemed to spark interest in the conference which was mostly  dedicated to analyzing the benefits and applications of Trusted Computing. An interesting proposal posed by the audience was to move beyond technical analysis of future threats into investigating the economy and motives underlying the various malicious activities.
