19th Annual Network & Distributed System Security Symposium

Network security technologies must respond to ever more complex issues and malicious behaviors. The purpose of NDSS is to bring the global Internet community together to learn about and discuss cutting-edge advances in the science and application of network and distributed systems security. The three day program features refereed paper presentations, punctuated by selected invited talks on security as it is applied in the field.

Leaders in Cyber Security

The Network and Distributed System Security Symposium fosters information exchange among researchers and practitioners of network and distributed system security. The target audience includes those interested in practical aspects of network and distributed system security, with a focus on actual system design and implementation. A major goal is to encourage and enable the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available network and distributed systems security technology.
