NSS 2009 -

3rd International Conference on Network and System Security (NSS 2009)

October 19-21, 2009, Gold Coast, Australia

In technical co-sponsorship with the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing

(( Call For Papers ))


While the attack systems have become more easy-to-use, sophisticated, and powerful, interest has greatly increased in the field of building more effective, intelligent, adaptive, active and high performance defense systems which are distributed and networked. We will focus our program on issues related to Network and System Security, such as authentication, access control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability of computer networks and systems. The aim of this conference is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the network and system security communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry and governments.

NSS 2009 is the next event in a series of highly successful events of Network and System Security (NSS), previously held as IFIP International Workshop on Network and System Security: NSS 2008 (Shanghai, China, October 2008) and NSS 2007 (Dalian, China, September 2007), respectively. NSS 2009 is in technical co-sponsorship with the IEEE and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Scalable Computing.

NSS 2009 will be held in Gold Coast, Australia. Gold Coast is renowned for its sunny subtropical climate, popular surfing beaches, expansive waterway and canal systems, a skyline dominated by high-rise apartment buildings, active nightlife and wide variety of tourist attractions.

Topics include, but not limited to:

* Active Defense Systems
