Open Workshop on Trusted Computing

Jointly hosted by the Information Security Group, Royal Holloway, University of London and the Virtual Centre of Excellence in Mobile and Personal Communications (Mobile VCE)

30th March 2004

As computers are increasingly embedded, ubiquitous and always (wirelessly) connected, security becomes imperative; this has led to the development of the notion of a 'trusted platform'. The workshop introduces recent technology developments and describes application examples from current research.


All presentations will take place in the Bourne Lecture Theatre 1, Royal Holloway, University of London, Egham, Surrey TW20 0EX. Directions and a campus map are available at the college web site (www.rhul.ac.uk/visitors-guide/).
