Call For Papers [PDF] [DOC]

The strong growth in mobile devices, networked embedded systems, wireless sensors, in/inter-vehicular computing applications, the ever increasing information computing power offered by computing clusters and information services over networks (stationary and mobile) presents new challenges, especially with respect to the security of integrated applications and environments. Security solutions need to address cost, resource constraints, enterprise/embedded interconnectivity, real time deadlines, multi-vendor integration issues, potentially unreliable mobile systems with low-bandwidth communication, and physical constraints often found in embedded applications.

We solicit previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions in these aspects of computer security that focus on network computing, embedded and mobile/ubiquitous systems. Papers may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, or empirical evaluation of secure systems, infrastructure, architectures, algorithms and protocols.

The major areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Embedded System and hardware Security/Trust
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Security for transport systems (cars, rail, aerospace, etc.)
  • Security in safety-critical systems
  • Methods for Key Management and Access Control
  • Robust Secure Protocols and Cryptographic Methods
  • Embedded control network authentication and integrity
  • Secure embedded device software updates
  • Cryptanalysis Methods
  • Power/Timing based attacks and mitigation
  • Design for security
  • Security of Cyberphysical Systems (enterprise+embedded composites)
  • License management for disconnected embedded systems
  • Tamper resistance
