This book contains the papers presented at the Eighth Annual IFIP TC-6 TC-11 Conference on Communications and Multimedia Security, held in Windermere, The Lake District, UK, on 15-18 September 2004. This was a working conference that facilitated lively debate and discussions between the participants and presenters. Thirty three papers were submitted with one being withdrawn prior to review. The reviews were conducted by an international program committee with acknowledged expertise in communications and multimedia security, many being well known authors of books, papers and Internet RFCs. They were aided by a small group of external volunteer reviewers. As a result, eighteen papers were shortlisted and fifteen were presented. In addition, there was a keynote speech and a Panel Session. The keynote speech was given by Karl-Heinz Brandenburg, the inventor of MP3, who talked about issues in Digital Rights Management. The Panel Session addressed security in the Microsoft .Net architecture, and the threats that builders of web services applications need to be aware of. The Panel Session consisted of six short papers followed by a question and answer session. The papers were a result of research sponsored by Microsoft at five European University research centres, and the authors presented the results of their findings. This session provoked a very lively discussion. Holding a successful working conference requires the hard work of many. The conference was organised by a group of staff and research students from the University of Salford. The editors would like to thank the authors for their submitted papers, the program committee and external reviewers for their conscientious efforts during the review process, the organising committee for their tireless efforts to ensure the smooth running of the conference, and the Beech Hill Hotel, Windermere, for their helpful service in providing the conference facilities and the wonderful food which was some of the most delicious we have tasted at a conference.
