== About OSW 2018 ==
The OAuth Security Workshop (OSW) aim is to improve the
security of OAuth and related Internet protocols by a direct
exchange of views between academic researchers, IETF
OAuth Working Group members and industry. The workshop
is hosted by the Security and Trust research unit of the
Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK).
While the standardization process of OAuth ensures extensive reviews
(both security and non-security related), further analysis by security
experts from academia and industry is essential to ensure high quality
specifications. Contributions to this workshop can help to improve the
security of the Web and the Internet.
== Scope and Topics ==
We seek position papers related to OAuth, OpenID Connect, and other
technologies using OAuth under the hood. Contributions regarding
technologies that are used in OAuth, such as JOSE, or impact the
security of OAuth, such as Web technology, are also welcome.
Areas of interest where OAuth can be used as enabler of innovative
- IoT, SmartCities and Industry 4.0.
- Mobile and Strong authentication.
- Federated Identity.
- Privacy-enhancing technologies.
