Following the first successful PLLS workshop in Darmstadt in 2016, the second Workshop on the Protection of Long-Lived Systems, PLLS 2018, will take place in Pärnu, Estonia, September 17-19, 2018.The workshop is organized by CROSSING in collaboration with Tallinn University of Technology.

With increasing digitization, the number of long-lived systems and services increases rapidly. Digital archives, such as electronic health record databases or land registry databases, will have to operate for many decades or even centuries. The protection of such long-lived systems against security risks is indispensable.

Most of the security technology used today appears inappropriate for protecting long-lived systems. This is particularly true for many cryptographic solutions. Keys chosen today may be too short and new attacks may be found against schemes that are considered secure today. Therefore, the protection of long-lived digital systems is an important scientific and technological problem.

This website is a platform aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the relevant technology and application areas in order to discuss important scientific challenges that need to be addressed and to find theoretically sound and practical solutions for the protection of long-lived systems.
