The aim of the Fall 2007 Seminar of Network Security is to take a look at the many technologies and schemes used today to protect end hosts and information from malicious users on the Internet. The focus is on end devices, e.g., user terminals, servers, sensors, and other equipment that is connected to the Internet, and on information and applications, e.g., how to trust applications to behave properly, and how to trust information and resources in general.

These proceedings hold very interesting papers on a wide range of topics. We have papers on network applications, and the security of information and resources. Security threats for the mobile world are also analyzed. Many of the papers discuss methods for detecting and preventing malicious network behavior and network traffic, other papers discuss mechanisms for protecting systems, and networks. We have technical papers describing actual and possible threats, while other papers go directly into the solution space and present techniques that are being used to make the computing environment safer and more trustworthy.

A few papers in these proceedings are truly making new scientific contributions in the field, which is an excellent achievement for the students and their tutors. I'm looking forward to enjoying great presentations.

Finally, I would like to thank, once again, Laura Takkinen for being such a tremendous help in pulling this seminar together, and making sure everything goes smoothly and follows our schedule.
