The NordSec workshops were started in 1996 with the aim of bringing together researchers and practitioners within computer security in the Nordic countries. The theme of the workshops has been applied security, i.e., all kinds of security issues that could encourage interchange and cooperation between the research community and the industrial/consumer community. 

NordSec 2002 is organised by the Department of Computer Science at Karlstad University in Sweden in cooperation with SIG Security, SCINT and Ericsson AB. A main theme of NordSec 2002, to which a special track within the workshop will be devoted, is  Privacy Enhancing Technologies.  NordSec 2002 will also specifically address the areas of Software Engineering and Quality of Service in relation to IT security.
