The goal of the LASER 2012 workshop is to provide an outlet for
publication of the results of all properly conducted experimental
(cyber) security research. This will encourage people to share not
only what works, but also what doesn't. Given the increased
importance of computer security, the security community needs to
quickly identify and learn from both success and failure. This is the
primary goal of this workshop. The specific technical results of the
experiments are of secondary importance for this workshop.
Topics include, but are not limited to
- Unsuccessful research in experimental security
- Methods and designs for security experiments
- Experimental confounds, mistakes, mitigations
- Successes and failures in reproducing the experimental techniques
and/or results of earlier work
The workshop focuses on research that has a valid hypothesis and
reproducible experimental methodology, but where the results were
unexpected or did not validate the hypotheses, where the methodology
addressed difficult and/or unexpected issues, or that identified
previously unsuspected confounding issues.
