Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research's 2004-05 Speaker Series Continues

Secure e-mail has struggled with significant obstacles to adoption, among them the low usability of encryption software and the cost and overhead of obtaining public key certificates. Key continuity management (KCM) has been proposed as a way to lower these barriers to adoption by making key generation, key management, and message signing essentially automatic. Garfinkel will present the results of the first user study of KCM-secured e-mail, conducted on naive users who had no previous experience with secure e-mail.

Professor Geyh Sings for Summer Salaries; PILF Raises More Than $4,000
Many thanks to Professor Charles Geyh, who came prepared for his ascension to the PILF "Singing for Summer Salaries" stage. Decked out in stylish glasses and a feather boa, the talented troubadour trolled "Lawyers, Guns, and Money." More important than the discovery of this awesome talent is the fact that Professor Geyh's performance was the culmination of an event that raised more than $4,000 for PILF summer fellowships! This amount will be matched by the school. On behalf of PILF and the communities these summer fellowships will benefit, thanks so much to all of you who contributed to the cause.
