Call For Papers

The 8th International CARO Workshop will be held on the 15th and 16th of May 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Melbourne, FL. The main theme of the workshop will be:

Mobile Space: Malware in a mobile world

Please remember this is a technical malware workshop, and there will be no 'corporate' or marketing papers. The sessions are closed to the media and there is a strict “no recording” policy enforced. The organizers reserve the right to reject participants and speakers if their affiliation cannot be verified as trustworthy.


CARO was founded on the principle of exchanging information with trusted partners, so as usual, we are soliciting any papers concerning this topic.

This year, the focus of the workshop will be the “mobile space” in the widest sense of the term. Topics can include:

 Case studies of Mobile Attacks

 Real Life Attack Demonstrations (PoC’s accepted)

 Rootkits and low level subversion of mobile platforms

 Disinfection of mobile platforms, at the handset and carrier level

 Reverse engineering on mobile platforms

 (Targeted) Advanced Persisting Threats (APT)

 (Dedicated) Advanced Evasion Techniques (AET)

 Mitigation to all of the above

 Identification and investigation of coordinated mobile threats

 Testing concerns for security software on mobile platforms

 COINTEL (Counter Intelligence) on determined adversaries (e.g., detecting the attacker, running honeypots, etc.)


Any topic with some relevance to mobile applications and hardware will be considered.

There will be a series of 45- and 20-minute presentations.
