SDIM 2020: The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Secure Digital Identity Management  In Conjunction with the 44th IEEE Computer Society Signature International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications (COMPSAC 2020) July 13-17, 2020 in Madrid, Spain 

Call for Papers:

Secure digital identity management, required by cloud services, federated services, or newest distributed and decentralized technologies such as blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, is receiving increasing attention from both service providers' and end users' perspectives, in terms of protection of enterprise assets and customers' privacy in the
cloud, respectively.  This workshop solicits contributions describing state-of-the-art methodology and technology innovations in the field of secure identity management, encourages experience sharing (both positive and negative ones), and also welcomes work-in-progress ideas towards future concepts.

The workshop is dedicated to the security and privacy aspects of identity management (IDM) in smart devices, the cloud, or blockchain and distributed ledger environment. Topics are articulated around several important themes as "concept design," "enabling technologies," "federated identities," "decentralized identities" and "applications." It is expected they will attract both theoretical and empirical work from the IDM society, the cloud computing society, and the decentralized identity management society. Scope of the Workshop:

Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of secure identity management will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics
will be particularly welcome. Practically-oriented approaches will also be appreciated.

  •  identity-based access control and remote personal data management    (authentication, authorization, accounting and access management, single sign on for Web services and non-web applications, etc.) 
  •  data provenance
  •  identity attributes processing and analysis in a protected domain
  •  service-oriented architecture for IDM in cloud
  •  identity federations & trust fabrics
  •  cryptographic methods for IDM
  •  identity management in the IoT environment
  •  IDM on a blockchain, self-sovereign identity or other   decentralized identity platform
  •  anonymization, pseudonymization, and other privacy/data    protection methods
  •  legal, ethical, and socioeconomic aspects

Important Dates:

  •  Full paper submission deadline: April 9th, 2020
  •  Acceptance notification: May 1st, 2020
  •  Camera ready submission and advance author registration: May 15th, 2020
  •  Workshop date: one day (TBD) during the COMPSAC week
