PETS in real time: commemorating Andreas Pfitzmann

27 July 2011

Andreas Pfitzmann has sadly passed away last year, and a special pannel session is taking place right now at PETS 2011 commemorating his work on anonymous communications and privacy. Andreas’ technical contribution span about 30 years, and as such he can be considered a founding father of the field of anonymous communications. His work in educating policy makers, and advocating privacy in the public sphere had a profound impact on German technology policy.

The pannel includes a short excerpt from an interview with Andreas, as well as recorded contributions, by collaborators (Michael Waidner and Marit Hansen), former students (Anna Krasnova and Hannes Federrath) and people in the PET community (Paul Syverson and Caspar Bowden).
