SSL tours East Asia

Stop 1: ACM AsiaCCS 2022 in Nagasaki, Japan

After a long time without conference travel, Dr. Richard Baker, Martin Georgiev and Sebastian Köhler were able to present their work in person at the 17th ACM Asia Conference on Computer and Communications Security (ACM AsiaCCS 2022) in Nagasaki, Japan.

Martin presented his work on common evaluation pitfalls in touch-based authentication systems, while Sebastian gave a presentation about his work on signal injection attacks against CCD image sensors. Although the conference was organised as a hybrid conference, more than 80 attendees participated in person, creating an enjoyable environment for discussing the latest trends in security.

Stop 2: SysSec KAIST

As part of their trip to the far east, the group members also visited Professor Yongdae Kim and his System
Security Lab at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, South Korea, where
they presented their newest work. Because of the closely related research in the SSL and Professor Kim’s research group, interesting conversations and discussions ensued. We would like to thank Professor Kim for
the friendly reception of our group members and hope that we can return that hospitality by welcoming members of SysSec to Oxford.
