The IEEE Computer Security Foundations (CSF) series brings together researchers in computer science to examine foundational issues in computer security. Over the past two decades, many seminal papers and techniques have been presented first at CSF. CiteSeer lists CSF as 38th out of more than 1200 computer science venues (top 3.11%) in impact based on citation frequency. CiteSeerX lists CSF 2007 as 7th out of 581 computer science venues (top 1.2%) in impact based on citation frequency.

CSF was originally a Workshop, the IEEE Computer Security Foundations Workshop (CSFW). CSF was upgraded to a Symposium in 2006.
