Internet users expect the net to be secure. However without 
secure protocols it is hard to develop secure systems. Yet what 
does it mean to produce "secure" protocols?

This session will discuss what the problem is, and the several
approaches that exist to deal with it. We will discuss existing 
secure protocols in the RFC suite (TLS, IPSec) with an eye 
toward the problems that they can solve. We will also discuss

The emphasis will be on practical solutions that can be deployed 
in protocols today.
