Call for Papers
The 7th International Workshop on Security and Forensics of IoT
(IoT-SECFOR 2023)
to be held in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2023 –
August 29 – September 01, 2023 (Benevento, Italy)

Workshop Description
Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, as the backbone of interconnected smart homes, smart hospitals, smart cities, smart wearables and other smart environments. IoT leverage embedded technologies equipped with sensors and communication capabilities; they are able to broadcast their presence to other objects and interact with them using a plethora of protocols and technologies. It was estimated by Gartner and Statista that a number of devices between 20.4 and 31 billion was in use in 2020, which may rise to 75 billion devices by 2025. Along with usability, efficiency, and cost savings benefits, increasingly, the use of IoT pose security risks and raise challenges to digital forensics. The constantly growing IoT botnets, such as Dark Nexus, emphasize the need to focus on these aspects. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both communities – security and forensics – to discuss problems and solutions regarding IoT.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Adaptive security in IoT
Challenges related to IoT forensics and security
Coexistence of different security protocols in IoT
Covert communication in IoT
Cryptographic protocols and algorithms for IoT
Cybercrimes exploiting IoT
Data analysis of IoT for forensic investigation
Data ownership and attack simulation methods for IoT networks and devices
Identification/preservation of evidence for digital forensic investigations involving IoT
Intrusion and malware detection/prevention technologies for IoT
Legal and human aspects of security and forensics of IoT
Models for risk identification and assessment in IoT networks
Privacy and trust in IoT
Security and forensic aspects in cyber physical IoT systems
Security applications and management of IoT
Security architectures and protection mechanisms for IoT
Security in Wireless Sensor Networks applied to IoT
Threat models and attack strategies for IoT
Applications of Artificial Intelligence in security and forensics in IoT
Adversarial attacks for Artificial Intelligence in IoT

Best Paper Award
The best paper award will be sponsored by the Institute of Cyber Security for Society (iCSS), University of Kent, UK. The decision criterion will consider both the paper quality and the oral presentation quality.

Submission Guidelines
The submission guidelines can be found at (6-8 pages, a maximum of 10 pages is tolerated). Double blind review: All papers submitted to EasyChair should be anonymized (no names or affiliations of authors should be visible in the paper) with no obvious self-references. Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the workshop. Proceedings will be published by ACM.
