Track 2: Security



The Security Track will address all the security aspects of design, implementation, deployment, architectures and modeling of heterogeneous wired and wireless computer networks, of  virtualization technology, as well as of  pervasive computer applications. It will also provide dynamic forums for researchers, students and professionals to present their research results and development in these areas and will offer the opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of on-going research relevant to information and system security.

Topic areas of interest of this track include, but are not limited to the following:

Thematic areas:


  • Security engineering. Methodologies, formalisms, modeling, tools, code instrumentation ....
  • Cryptography. Algorithms, protocols, attacks...
  • Security in distributed systems.
  • Cryptographic Hardware and Embedded Systems.
  • Light-weight cryptography.
  • Information Hiding. Steganography ...
  • Privacy and Anonymity.
  • Security assurance. Evaluation, testing, formal proofs, certification.
  • Quantum Cryptography and QKD.
  • Trusted computing. Analyses and attacks, practical applications...
  • Surveillance and monitoring. Intrusion detection, monitoring techniques, architectures,...
  • Infrastructure. Middleware, proxies, PKIs, AAAs, SSO, credentials...
  • Social and psychological aspects of security. User-centered security evaluation, perception of security and threats...
  • Security and usability.


Application areas:


  • Service Oriented Computing. Platform security, access control, Security of the SOC processes (Negotiation, Orchestration), Identification of services...
  • Cloud computing. Platform security, data protection, software protection, surveillance and dynamic reaction.
  • Ubiquitous computing, pervasive computing and ambient intelligence. Secure system models, development support, dynamic reaction, self-* systems
