ISG Researchers win prestigious NDSS 2012 Best Paper Award

Posted on 10/02/2012

ISG researchers Nadhem AlFardan and Kenny Paterson have jointly won the best paper award at the 2012 Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS 2012), held this week in San Diego, California. The award, sponsored by Google, was given for "outstanding contributions in the field" and relates to Nadhem and Kenny's paper "Plaintext-Recovery Attacks Against Datagram TLS".

Datagram TLS is an increasingly important secure protocol, and is used widely in the industry in Virtual Private Networking products. In their paper, Nadhem and Kenny show that the OpenSSL and GnuTLS implementations of Datagram TLS are vulnerable to efficient, practical plaintext recovery attacks. Their work has already lead to new versions of the code being released by OpenSSL and GnuTLS. Read their paper here. A copy of the certificate can be viewed here.
