PED vulnerability paper receives "Most Practical Paper" award at Oakland

In February, Steven Murdoch, Ross Anderson and I reported our findings on system-level failures of widely deployed PIN Entry Devices (PED) and the Chip and PIN scheme as a whole. Steven is in Oakland presenting the work described in our paper at the IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (slides).

We are very pleased that we are the recipients of the new “Most Practical Paper” award of the conference, given to “the paper most likely to immediately improve the security of current environments and systems”. Thanks to everyone who supported this work!
