Securing Internet of Things

June 30 - July 02, 2014, Heraklion, Greece - www.wistp.org




Future ICT technologies, such as the concepts of Ambient Intelligence, Cyber-physical Systems and Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society in which: a) people and physical systems are surrounded with intelligent interactive interfaces and objects, and b) environments are capable of recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals or events in a seamless, unobtrusive and invisible manner. The success of future ICT technologies will depend on how secure these systems may be, to what extent they will protect the privacy of individuals and how individuals will come to trust them. WISTP 2014 aims to address security and privacy issues of smart devices, networks, architectures, protocols, policies, systems, and applications related to Internet of Things, along with evaluating their impact on business, individuals, and the society.


The workshop seeks original submissions from academia and industry presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy of Internet of Things, as well as experimental studies of fielded systems, the application of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned. We encourage submissions from other communities such as law, business, and policy that present these communities' perspectives on technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


* Security and Privacy in Smart Devices

- Biometrics, National ID cards

- Embedded Systems Security and TPMs

- Interplay of TPMs and Smart Cards

- Mobile Codes Security

- Mobile Devices Security

- Mobile Malware

- Mobile OSes Security Analysis

- New Applications for Secure RFID Systems

- RFID Systems

- Smart Card

- Smart Devices Applications

- Wireless Sensor Node


* Security and Privacy in Networks

- Ad Hoc Networks

- Delay-Tolerant Network

- Domestic Network


- Peer-to-Peer Networks

- Security Issues in Mobile and Ubiquitous Networks

- Sensor Networks: Campus Area, Body Area, Sensor and Metropolitan Area Networks

* Security and Privacy in Architectures, Protocols, Policies, Systems and Applications

- BYOD Contexts

- Cloud-enhanced Mobile Security

- Critical Infrastructure (e.g. for Medical or Military Applications)

- Cyber-Physical Systems

- Digital Rights Management (DRM)

- Distributed Systems and Grid Computing

Paper Submission due: March 7, 2014

Notification to authors: April 7, 2014

Author registration: April 21, 2014

Camera ready due: April 21, 2014




Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or conference/workshop with proceedings. Each submission should be at most 16 pages in total in the Springer’s LNCS format (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0). All submissions should be anonymous (i.e., no author names/affiliations and obvious citations). Submissions are to be made to the submission web site (http://www.wistp.org/submission-details/). Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (http://www.springeronline.com/lncs), and the proceedings will be available at the workshop. The camera-ready version of the accepted papers must follow Springer guidelines (a Latex source file will be required). 


If a submitted paper is mainly the work of a student author, this paper is eligible for the best student paper award. To participate in this selection process, please add the word "STUDENT" in the affiliation field in the submission form.


Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register with the workshop and present the paper. For authors presenting multiple papers, one normal registration is valid for up to two papers.
