Steven Murdoch, Saar Drimer, Mike Bond and I have just won the IEEE Security and Privacy Symposium’s Best Practical Paper award for our paper Chip and PIN is Broken. This was an unexpected pleasure, given the very strong competition this year (especially from this paper). We won this award once before, in 2008, for a paper on a similar topic.
Update (2010-05-28): The photo now includes the full team (original version)

Congratulations guys, this is well-deserved!
Lucky Ross took his award-acceptance shirt along.
Congratulations; it’s an excellent paper (but then again so is most of the output of the Cambridge labs; Prof Wilkes must be proud 🙂
By the way, is the final version of the paper available yet?
Hi Ben, thanks a lot 🙂
I’ve just discovered Steven has updated the old link to the paper to point at the new version. So you should be able to find the updated one here:
The substantive new section is section IX “Response” on pages 10-11.
Keep your head up!
We all are proud of you and waiting for updates in your research. By the way, my personal opinion is the same as IEEE.
“Cambridge Computer Laboratory Security Group” is the best in the world sui generis!
Well done. Great paper – not sure about that shirt.
Well done guys.
I’ve just finished to read it. It’s awesome ! I really enjoyed the reading. Hope to see some follow up.
The new photo looked a bit too dark, so using some photoshop magic I brightened up the foreground a bit, apologies if it looks a bit amateurish but at least you can see our faces now.
Nothing else is photoshopped, we did all the stuff in the paper for real… didn’t we?
Yes, the transactions we put through were genuine forgeries!
The shirt was not that bad – or perhaps it was.
