Identity-Based Encryption
Identity-Based Encryption (IBE) is a new type of public key encryption that can use Identities such as Device Identifiers as public keys. Originally proposed in 1984, only recently practical implementations became available. IBE allows to build secure protocols with minimum overhead, while at the same time being highly scalable and easy to implement. In this session an overview of the technology, current standardization through IEEE and possible applications will be presented.

WEB CONFERENCING INFORMATION

We are pleased to present all OWASP meetings via conference call. To listen, the dialin number is 1-218-936-4700 (Passcode 606183). The conference line has a limited number of caller slots, so please be considerate of others and share whenever possible.

Call for Speakers

This is a call for speakers/papers. If we haven't approached you, but you believe you have a significant discovery or new research that the security community would value, or enjoy hearing about, we invite you to submit your presentation topic for serious consideration. Preference will be given to speakers who can present new and innovative technical content to a broad audience. Of course, all presentations are expected to challenge the brightest and quickest of attendees - we wouldn't have it any other way.

OWASP is not a vendor fair. Consequently, there will be very little tolerance for commercial content within presentations. Attendees will be encouraged to quell any shameless marketing that is not immediately backed up with rationale for its inclusion.

Some topics of interest for upcoming meetings include (but are not limited to):

  • Breaking CAPTCHA
  • Hacking Cardspace and Identity 2.0
  • Breaking Commercial Software for Fun and Profit
  • Tactics for breaking software licensing schemes
  • Gaming, the next overlooked security hole
  • Hacking Mainframes
  • Database rootkits
