22nd USENIX Security Symposium

Here we are, attending once again USENIX Security Symposium (22nd edition) this time organized in Washington DC, US.

It really attracts that kind of research that lets you dream of what computer security can be, without losing contact with reality. It is also a wonderful way to catch up with former colleagues from academia, especially if they are presenting some of their ongoing research (but I will get to that later).
