September 24-26, 2017 At the Hyatt Regency, Cambridge, MA

IEEE Secure Development Conference

Registration Coming Soon


Posted on: March 3rd, 2017 by Jessica Hedges

SecDev is a venue for presenting ideas, research, and experience about how to develop secure systems.

SecDev is distinguished by its focus on how to “build security in” (and not simply to discover the absence of security). Its goal is to encourage and disseminate ideas for secure system development among both academia and industry. Developers have valuable experiences and ideas that can inform academic research, and researchers have concepts, studies, and even code and tools that could benefit developers. We anticipate that attendees from academic conferences like IEEE S&P, USENIX Security, PLDI, FSE, ISSTA, SOUPS, and many others could contribute ideas to SecDev, as could attendees of industrial conferences like AppSec, RSA, Black Hat, and Shmoocon.

We’re seeking donors to the 2017 conference.  Last year we had terrific invited talks, presentations, and tutorials. Below is a video from Prof. Jonathon Katz’s talk, “How to Think about Cryptography: Common Crypto Flaws and How to Avoid Them”.
