ISCA 2017: " Ignore the warnings about the certificate."It seems wrong that the webpage for ISCA, the International Symposium on Computer Architecture, which has two sessions on security and also includes a workshop on Hardware and Architectural Support for Security and Privacy, cannot do certificate based security properly.
I haven't looked at the certs, but I understand why: creating a cert for a subdomain which such a relatively short active life is a pain. Yes, even with the EFFs free certs. (Note that conference websites often survive years, sometimes decades - but nobody gets credit for securing such a site after the conference ends. (Hmm, maybe bad guys who want to attack the sorts of people who go to such conferences should make such stale sites infectious.) )
Still: computer architects should know enough to get valid certs.
And I wish that the world was more comfortable in allowing domain owners to issue signing certs fir subdomains, and so on.
