Authors

The Table below provides a searchable overview of the top ranking authors in systems security (and the top crypto conferences) based on the total number of papers they published (also see Davide Balzarotti's Systems Security Circus). For this ranking, we include all publications at Tier 1 systems security conferences (IEEE S&P, CCS, USENIX & NDSS), Tier 2 systems security conferences (ACSAC & RAID) and Tier 1 crypto conferences (CRYPTO, EUROCRYPT). Each entry shows the total number of papers published, as well as the number of first authored papers, in brackets. Click here for an explanation of how this list was compiled. For an overview of influential security papers, Konrad Rieck keeps a great list.

How was this list compiled?

The publications on which this list is based were retrieved from dblp.org for the years 1980 onwards. Unfortunately, the dblp database does not contain entries for the following venues, and I am too lazy to add them manually:

Venue Edition Year
ACSAC 1st 1985
ACSAC 2nd 1986
ACSAC 3rd 1987
ACSAC 4th 1988
ACSAC 11th 1995
RAID 1st 1998
