The 14th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2019) was held from August 26 to 29 August 2019 at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.
Keynotespeaker at ARES
The International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES”) has been bringing together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability since 2006 and aims at a full and detailed discussion of the research issues of security as an integrative concept that covers, amongst others, the issues of availability, safety, confidentiality, integrity, maintainability and security in the different fields of applications.
International Workshop on Security of Mobile Applications (IWSMA 2019)
In addition to their duties as PC-members, Sebastian Schrittwieser and Peter Kieseberg organized the International Workshop on Security of Mobile Applications (IWSMA) for the 8th time, again sporting well-selected research papers on the topic of mobile security. The camera ready versions of these publications can of course be found in the ARES conference proceedings.
Furthermore, Peter Kieseberg, head of the Institute of IT Security Research, was a keynote speaker at BASS 2019 – the 2nd International Workshop on Behavioral Authentication for System Security (BASS) held in conjunction with ARES for the first time. In this talk he highlighted the problems of privacy and deletion surrounding the important field of behavioral authentication that is expected to play a key role in the development of continuous authentication systems.
It was especially important for the Institute of IT Security, that Tobias Dam presented his joint work with Lukas Daniel Klausner, Damjan Buhaov and Sebastian Schrittwieser (all from St. Pölten UAS) on ‘Large Scale Analysis of Pop-Up Scam on Typosquatting URLs’ at the International Workshop on Cyber Crime (IWCC). This workshop also was held in conjunction with ARES. This was a great opportunity to draw a lot of international attention to the St. Pölten UAS’ research.
Congratulations to the IT Security Research-team to not only participate in but also shape such an important and international conference!
