Call For Papers

The Internet is the main information exchange means nowadays. It has become the core communication environment, not only for business relations, but also for social and human interaction. Yet, the immense success of Internet has created even higher hopes and expectations for new immersive and real-time applications and services, without guarantees that the Internet as we know it today will be able to support them. The new demands can be addressed to a certain degree through incremental infrastructure investment (i.e. more and more bandwidth in wireline, wireless and mobile networks) combined with “over-dimensioning”. However, analyses have shown that increasing the bandwidth to peta-bps on the backbone network will not suffice due to new qualitative requirements in, for example, highly critical services such as e-health applications, clouds of services and clouds of sensors, new social network applications like collaborative 3D immersive environments, new commercial and transactional applications, new location-based services and so on. Therefore, research efforts have been considering fundamental modifications to the current Internet and hence, novel communication architectures and new trends have been recently proposed under the umbrella of Future Networks. Research areas that could be seen as components of Future Networks include new communication models such as Information Centric Networks, Software Defined Networks, Network Virtualization and Cloud Networking. In addition to other trends that could be deployed with minimal modifications to the current TCP/IP suite such as the Internet of Things, Peer-to-Peer and Device-To-Device networks.

Our experience of the Internet as an unsecure environment is mainly due to the fact that security has not been taken into consideration earlier in the design stage; security protocols and mechanisms are adds-on to the TCP/IP suit and they have always been devised as reactions to attacks. Learning from the lessons of the Internet, research in Future Networks should view security as a key part of the network architecture and consider to integrate security at the design stage. The fact that Future Networks introduce novel communication models which are different from the Internet’s model implies that current security mechanisms and protocols might not be appropriate for or compatible with the new communication models. Therefore, modifications to current mechanisms or even new security approaches have to be considered. In addition to the security threats found in the current Internet, Future Networks will have to deal with new threats. A key challenge here is how to integrate security into system without compromising the flexibility, dynamics and ubiquity of Future Networks.
The International Workshop on the Emerging Future Internet and Network Security is intended to bring forth the recent advancements in these areas; it invites original contributions on emerging internetworking and communication models with an emphasis on Security, Privacy and Trust in issues in these models. Topics of interest includes but not limited to:

 Accountability verses anonymity and privacy
 Application level trust, privacy and security
 Architectures related to trust, privacy and security
 Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) for future networks
 Cross-layer security
 Key management issue and solutions
 Identity management
 Privacy, anonymity and traceability
 Threat and vulnerability analysis for future networks
 Trust technologies, technologies for building trust in future networks
