Published: July 18, 2006
Abstract: NIST hosted the fifth annual Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) Research Workshop on April 4-6, 2006. The two and a half day event brought together PKI experts from academia, industry, and government to explore the remaining challenges in deploying public key authentication and authorization technologies. This proceedings includes the 7 refereed papers, and captures the essence of the keynote, four invited talks, five panels and interaction at the workshop. The workshop also included a work-in-progress session and, new this year, an informal rump session. Attendees included presenters from the USA, United Kingdom, Israel, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Germany and Canada. Due to the success of this event, a sixth workshop is planned for Spring 2007.
