The Computer Security Foundations Symposium is an annual conference for researchers in computer security, to examine current theories of security, the formal models that provide a context for those theories, and techniques for verifying security. It was created in 1988 as a workshop of theIEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Security and Privacy, in response to a 1986 essay by Don Good entitled "The Foundations of Computer Security - We Need Some." The meeting became a "symposium" in 2007, along with a policy for open, increased attendance.Over the past two decades, many seminal papers and techniques have been presented first at CSF. In 2008, CiteSeer listed CSF as 38th out of more than 1200 computer science venues (top 3.11%) in impact based on citation frequency. CiteSeerX lists CSF 2007 as 7th out of 581 computer science venues (top 1.2%) in impact based on citation frequency.
