Program Security & Privacy Track at ICT.OPEN 2019

March 12, 2019

Security and Privacy issues arise in nearly all stages in the digitalisation of our society. Examples include the smart home or the smart car that need to be secured against unauthorised access or malicious remote control. And the right to privacy becomes ever more important with the growing integration of digital technologies into our daily lives; think about maintaining data privacy of our electronic health records to prevent abuse and discrimination or the problem of browser/device fingerprinting and the creation of unique digital footprints with our every move online. In this track, we deal with the multidisciplinary challenges around security and privacy in the digital society; discuss current and upcoming problems as well as mitigation strategies in order to pave the road for a secure and privacy-preserving future! The track covers (a.o.) the following topics: (embedded) systems security, physical attacks, privacy enhancing technologies, network security, machine learning in security and privacy,  and (applied) cryptography.
