Call For Papers

Workshop to be held in conjunction with the 10th IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2017:


Internet-of-Things (IoT) are becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, as the backbone of interconnected smart homes, smart hospitals, smart cities, smart wearables and other smart environments. IoT leverage embedded technologies equipped with sensors and communication capabilities; they are able to broadcast their presence to other objects and interact with them using different protocols. Gartner predicts that, by 2020, 21 Billion IoT endpoints will be in use. Along with usability, efficiency, and cost savings benefits, increasingly, the use of IoT pose security risks and raise challenges to digital forensics. The massive DDoS caused by the Mirai botnet which exploited IoT devices is a recent example.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both communities – security and forensics – to discuss problems and solutions regarding IoT.

Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:

Security architectures and protection mechanisms for IoT
Threat models and attack strategies for IoT
Security applications and management of IoT
Intrusion and malware detection/prevention technologies for IoT
Cyber physical IoT systems
Security in Wireless Sensor Networks applied to IoT
Challenges related to IoT Forensics and security
Privacy and trust in IoT
Adaptive security in IoT
Identification/preservation of evidence for digital forensic investigations involving IoT
Data analysis of IoT for forensic investigation
Models for risk identification and assessment in IoT networks
Data ownership and attack simulation methods for IoT networks and devices
Legal and human aspects of security and forensics of IoT
IoT protocols (e.g, ZigBee) and implications for security and forensics
Coexistence of different protocols in IoT environments
