Securing and Trusting Internet Names (SATIN 2011)

The inaugural SATIN workshop was held at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) on Monday/Tuesday this week. The workshop format was presentations of 15 minutes followed by 15 minutes of discussions — so all the 49 registered attendees were able to contribute to success of the event.

Many of the papers were about DNSSEC, but there were also papers on machine learning, traffic classification, use of names by malware and ideas for new types of naming system. There were also two invited talks: Roy Arends from Nominet (who kindly sponsored the event) gave an update on how the co.uk zone will be signed, and Rod Rasmussen from Internet Identity showed how passive DNS is helping in the fight against eCrime. All the papers, and the presenters slides can be found on the workshop website.

The workshop will be run again (as SATIN 2012), probably on March 22/23 (the week before IETF goes to Paris). The CFP, giving the exact submission schedule, will appear in late August.
