FC'05 (the conference) posts the programme!

FC'05 - the Financial Cryptography conference to be held in Dominica, first week of March - has posted a preliminary programme. I haven't seen it announced yet, so maybe this is a 'leak' :-)

There are lots of interesting papers, and it looks like this year they may have actually brought in more relevant stuff. Also, two panels:

A Panel on Phishing! Well, it makes sense. The only thing that will protect users from being phished will be good relationship management ... as based on caching of certs. That's finance and crypto, right there.

And, a Panel on Financial Technology in the Developing World. Another fine topic where much has been done, much could be done, and much more is being asked of us.

Re phishing, on December 3 you wrote, 'Phishing has gone way way way beyond the "don't click on that link" level.'

Could you elaborate? Why can't the problem be basically addressed by teaching people not to trust links in random emails? Do you get phished via another medium?
