Workshop Description and Scope

The International Workshop on Secure Internet of Things 2015 (SIoT 2015) will be held in conjunction with the European Symposium on Research in Computer Security (ESORICS 2015) in Vienna, Austria, at the Vienna University of Technolog, on 21st of September 2015.

SIoT 2015 is a community where interested stakeholders, from academia and industry, can present their original work on providing a secure environment for connecting systems in an Internet-specific structure. The wide spread of mobile and embedded devices, able to connect to a network and share information, requires a careful look at the security risks taken by end users. In this context, the workshop will focus on contributions related to the security of mesh and machine-to-machine networks, secure software stacks running on ubiquitous network nodes, and algorithms used to provide secure end-to-end communication between nodes.

Call for Papers

You are welcome to send the CFP (available TXT format) to your friends and colleagues working in the field.
