SETOP 2009 : Second SETOP International Workshop on Autonomous and Spontaneous Security
Call For Papers
With the need for evolution, if not revolution, of current network architectures and the Internet, autonomous and spontaneous management will be a key feature of future networks and information systems. In this context, security is an essential property that must be thought at the early stage of conception of these systems and designed to be also autonomous and spontaneous.
Future networks and systems must be able to automatically configure themselves with respect to their security policies. The security policy specification must be dynamic and adapt itself to the changing environment. Those networks and systems must be able to interoperate securely when they respective security policies are heterogeneous and possibly conflicting. They must be able to autonomously evaluate the impact of an intrusion in order to spontaneously select the appropriate and relevant response when a given intrusion is detected.
Of course, autonomous and spontaneous security is a key issue to address in different wireless and mobile technologies available today such as RFID, Wifi, Wimax, 3G, etc...Other technologies such as ad hoc or sensor networks are also very interesting for new type of services, and security in these networks needs to be managed in an autonomous and spontaneous way. The SETOP Workshop seeks submissions that present research results on all aspects related to spontaneous and autonomous security. Submissions by PhD students are encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
* Security policy deployment
* Self evaluation of risk and impact
* Distributed intrusion detection
* Autonomous and spontaneous response
* Trust establishment
* Security in ad hoc networks
* Security in sensor/RFID networks
* Security of Next Generation Network
* Security of Service Oriented Architecture
* Security of opportunistic Networks
* Privacy in self-organized networks
* Secure localization
* Context aware and ubiquitous computing
* Secure interoperability and negotiation
* Self-organization in secure routing
* Identity management
Submissions must be in English. Maximum length for submissions is 15 pages (A4 format, one column, 11-point font). Papers must be submitted in PDF and for the final version the sources of the contribution in LaTeX will also be required.
The proceedings of the SETOP Workshop will be published by Publibook in the collection "Information and Communication" with an ISBN reference. A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for publication in a special issue of the "Annals of Telecommunications" journal.
