"Ethics in Security Research - Which Lines Should Not Be Crossed?";
Talk: Cyber-security Research Ethics Dialog & Strategy Workshop (CREDS 2013),
Recently, several research papers in the area of
information security were published that may or may not be
considered unethical. Looking at these borderline cases is relevant
as today´s research papers will influence how young researchers
conduct their research. In this paper we discuss fundamental
ethical principles and their role in recent literature.We argue that
the establishment of ethical guidelines or frameworks without
prior discussion and consensus in the research community
probably would not lead to clarity on which lines in academic
research should not be crossed.
