Latest News

  • 30 Jun 2011: The CFP is now closed.


The Linux Security Summit (LSS) is a technical forum for collaboration between Linux developers, researchers, and end users. Its aim is to foster community efforts in analyzing and solving Linux security challenges.

The format of the summit will be:

  • Selected brief presentations
  • Lightning talks
  • Q&A panel sessions


The Linux Security Summit for 2011 will be held on the 8th of September in Santa Rosa, CA, USA. It will be co-located with Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC).

Note that Linux Security Summit attendees and speakers must be registered to attend LPC. See the LPC site for details on registration, travel, and accommodation.

The event is open to all registered LPC attendees.

You do not have to be a "security person" to attend -- we're seeking a diverse range of attendees, and welcome the participation of general developers, researchers, operations, and end-users.

There will be several panel sessions in addition to brief, selected presentations, with a strong focus on discussion.

CFP Details

The program committee currently seeks proposals for:


Brief technical talks in 30 minute slots, including at least 10 minutes of discussion (i.e. the maximum length of the presentation alone is 20 minutes). Papers are encouraged, and slides should be minimal.

  • Cryptography
  • Integrity control
  • Hardware security
  • Networking
