Title: The Case for (and against) Science of Security
Abstract: Developing of Secure System has always been a hard problem and not so well understood. In light of this I will review the notion of "Science of Security" and will try to challenge the goals, needs, and thus methodologies in the area. What is "Science" and how to approach it has always been an interesting and controversial issue (regardless of area of study), let alone an area like security that is in itself itself not so well defined and quite broad). I will touch upon what we can learn from the philosophy of science, and what can we learn from the goals of security in actual systems (will try to give an example about some discussion points I will make). Then will discuss issues and non-issues in this very young sub-area.
