Thanks for attending

Thanks for attending the Workshop on Web Applications and Secure Hardware!

The day was a great success. There were fascinating presentations from researchers, academics and developers from a wide variety of backgrounds. This generated a lot of discussion on topics such as usability, web standards, challenges facing deployment of authentication systems and the difference between mobile and PC security architectures.

I will publish a longer article summarising the day and some of the discussion next week. Presentation slides and full proceedings will also be available shortly – check the Programme page for more information.

Finally – thanks to our hosts Imperial College London (Professor Huth in particular) and to our sponsors Gemalto. This would also not be possible without support from the webinos project.
