Also, great to see several UVA folks at the conference including:
- Sam Havron (BSCS 2017, now a PhD student at Cornell) presented a paper on the work he and his colleagues have done on computer security for victims of intimate partner violence.
Serge Egelman (BSCS 2004) was an author on the paper 50 Ways to Leak Your Data: An Exploration of Apps' Circumvention of the Android Permissions System (which was recognized by a Distinguished Paper Award). His paper in SOUPS on Privacy and Security Threat Models and Mitigation Strategies of Older Adults was highlighted in Alex Stamos' excellent talk.
Yuan Tian (UVA professor) presented her work on Chinese password guessability (since the student author who was planning to present was unfortunately unable to obtain a visa in time). Chinese passwords are different from those of English speakers in many interesting ways, but everyone agrees that
123456is a great password.
