Call For Papers

Malicious Software and Hardware in the Internet of Things
Co-located with ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2016
Como, Italy, 16-18 May 2016

Aim and Scope:
Cyber-physical and smart embedded systems, already highly networked, will be even more connected in
the near future to form the Internet of Things, handling large amount of private and safety critical data.
The pervasive diffusion of these devices will create several threats to privacy and could open new
possibilities for attackers, since the security of even large portions of the Internet of Things could be
harmed by compromising a reduced number of components. The possibility of securely updating devices
should be guaranteed and it should be possible to verify and assert the root of trust of components. With
respect to this context we expect contributions in different areas of security in the Internet of Things.
Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

* Malicious firmware design and detection
* Malware in Internet of Things applications
* Hardware root of trust
* Privacy issues of smart-home systems and complex systems
* Hardware Trojans and their effects on systems
* Hardware authentication and IP protection
* Secure communication and key management
* Implementation attacks and countermeasures
* Emerging threats and attack vectors in the Internet of Things
* Supply chain security

Prospective authors are invited to submit novel contributions, work in progresses, and positional papers
(4 to 6 pages for regular papers, 2 pages for extended abstracts, double-column ACM SIG alternate style).
Submissions must be anonymous with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious
references. Computing Frontiers 2016 has obtained the technical sponsorship of the ACM Association for
Computing Machinery. All the papers will be published on the ACM Digital Library.
