Terry Benzel, Francesco Stajano, Apollo-University Of Cambridge Repository
The IEEE Euro S&P Symposium series was established in 2016 as the European counterpart of the prestigious and long-standing IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy. In recent years it has become one of the top venues for security research in Europe and worldwide. The fourth edition of the conference was held at the KTH campus in Stockholm, Sweden from the 17th to the 19th of June 2019. It attracted 210 submissions, more than in any previous year. Based on the results of a rigorous doubleblind

The accepted papers covered many different areas within the broad field of security and we have picked five of them for this special issue as representative samples, spanning from machine-learning-assisted discovery of web vulnerabilities through high performance and high security smart contracts on blockchains, secure enclaves, password guessing countermeasures, all the way to the improper use of benchmarks in security papers.
