Program Security & Privacy Track at ICT.OPEN 2020

February 26, 2020

Security and Privacy issues arise in nearly all stages in the digitalisation of our society. Examples include the smart home or smart car that need to be secured against unauthorised access or malicious remote control. Consequently, the right to privacy becomes ever more important with the growing integration of digital technologies into our daily lives. For instance, 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.


ICT.OPEN2020 will take place at MartiniPlaza in Groningen on Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 March. On March 18 2020 the ICT.OPEN 2020 Security and Pricacy Track is presented by Track Chairs Veelasha Moonsamy (Radboud University) and Andreas Peter (University of Twente). In the Track, current and upcoming problems, multidisciplinary challenges as well as mitigation strategies in order to pave the road for a secure and privacy-preserving future will be discussed. The track covers (among others) the following topics: (embedded) systems security, software security, physical attacks, privacy enhancing technologies, network security, machine learning in security and privacy, and (applied) cryptography. In addition to the broad coverage of the topics mentioned, this year’s track will have a special focus on research valorization in security and privacy.
