MOBISEC 2011 : 3rd International ICST Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems
Conference Series : Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems
Call For Papers
MobiSec's focus is the convergence of information and communication technology in mobile scenarios. This convergence is realised in intelligent mobile devices, accompanied by the advent of converged, and next-generation, communication networks. As mobile communication and information processing becomes a commodity, economy and society require protection of this precious resource. Mobility and trust in networking go hand in hand for future generations of users, who need privacy and security at all layers of technology. MobiSec strives to bring together the leading-edge of academia and industry in mobile systems security, as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers.
Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. MobiSec solicits original, high-quality research contributions in the form of full papers. The focus is on the security of information and communication systems including mobile networks, devices and applications. Papers from other areas, e.g., formal methods, cryptography, database security, operating system security, will be considered if a clear connection to one of the topics below is demonstrated.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following focus areas:
Focus: Machine-to-Machine Communication Security
Device Identities and Authentication
Remote Integrity Validation and Remediation
Remote Management and Provisioning
Machine-to-Machine Application Layer Security
