SPDNS 2018 : The Special Session - Security in Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing
Call For Papers
Special Session on "Security in Parallel, Distributed and Network-Based Computing" aims to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in multiple disciplines concerning security in distributed systems to exchange ideas and to learn the latest developments in this important field. We will focus on issues related to network and distributed system security, such as authentication, access control, confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, dependability and sustainability of distributed systems.
Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions to the theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems are solicited for submission.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Adaptive security
* Applied cryptography
* Authentication, authorization and access control
* Big data for security
* Cloud security
* Computer and network forensics
* Data mining, machine learning, and bio-inspired approaches for security
* Digital rights management
* Embedded system security
* Internet and web security
* Intrusion and malware detection and prevention
* Risk analysis and risk management
* Security and privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing
* Security evaluation
* Security of emerging technologies
* Security modeling and simulation
* Security policies
* Security protocols
* Software security
* Tamper resistance
* Trust management
* Trusted computing
