CARDIS has been the venue for security experts from industry and academia to exchange on security of smart cards and related applications since 1994. Smart cards play an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life through their use in banking cards, SIM cards, electronic passports, and IoT devices. It is thus naturally of utmost importance to understand their security features and to develop sound protocols and countermeasures while keeping reasonable performance. In this respect, CARDIS aims to gather security experts from industry, academia, and standardization bodies to make steps forward in the field of embedded security.

The 20th edition of CARDIS is organized by the Institute for IT Security of the Universität zu Lübeck, Germany. The conference website is accessible at

The program committee is seeking original papers on the design, development, deployment, evaluation, penetration testing and application of smart cards and secure embedded systems. Submissions across a broad range of the development phase are encouraged, from exploratory research and proof-of-concept studies to practical applications and deployment.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Security and applications of:
Smart cards: identification, access control, pay TV
IoT devices: automotive, medical, mobile payment, mobile connected devices
Trusted computing: mobile TPM, Trusted Execution Environments
Embedded systems: operating systems, memory, virtual machines
Cryptographic implementations of:
Lightweight cryptographic algorithms
Post-quantum cryptographic algorithms
Random number generators, PUFs
White-box cryptography
Attacks and countermeasures:
Side-channel (timing, power, cache) attacks and countermeasures
Fault and combined attacks and countermeasures
Reverse engineering, (anti-)cloning, (anti-)tempering, (anti-)counterfeiting
Automated analysis
Formal verification and secure design
Machine learning analysis
Paper Submission
Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PDF format using the submission form available on Submissions must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to journals or other conferences with proceedings. Submissions must be written in English and should be at most 20 pages in total (including references and appendices). Papers not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration. All submissions will be blind-refereed. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper. The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Both submissions and accepted papers must follow the LNCS default author instructions accessible on the Springer webpage: .
