Let’s talk a bit about ISSISP, the reason why I was in Ghent the entire week…
It’s a summer school, organised by Prof. Bjorn De Schutter from the University of Ghent.
ISSISP stands for “International Summer School on Information Security and Protection”, it’s now organised for the 2nd time and is supported by IEEE, ACM, Irdeto and some others…
We have all kind of cool guest speakers:
✓ Christian Collberg (University of Arizona, USA)
✓ Jack Davidson (University of Virginia, USA)
✓ Roberto Giacobazzi (Università di Verona, Italy)
✓ Yuan Xiang Gu (Irdeto, Canada)
✓ Bjorn De Sutter (Ghent University, Belgium)
And they all talked about different techniques on protection software from third-party users. Like for code that checks licensing information and how hackers try to get around it…
Code obfuscation, watermarking, virtualisation, tamperproofing, … All pretty cool techniques for hiding information of your code and making sure nobody else could use it 🙂
It where nice courses, it where (the one more than the other) fascinating speakers, cool people around, very good organisation, …
Actually, I don’t have any negative points! =)
It was fun and I learned really a lot!
Way to go!
