Special Session “Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things” (GIIS 2018)

August 15, 2018

Special Session "Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things" Global Information Infrastructure and Networking Symposium (GIIS 2018) Thessaloniki, Greece, October 23-25, 2018

Aims and Scope
The technological and industrial revolution brought by the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with new forms of threats and attacks that exploit the inherent complexity and heterogeneity of IoT networks. There are many recent examples of attacks that exploit IoT devices to perform large-scale distributed denial of service attacks, to spy on people, and to hijack communication links, therefore delivering full control of anything that is remotely accessible to an attacker. The special session focuses on both the theoretical & practical aspects of the security, privacy, and trust of IoT networks, devices, applications, and services as well as novel ways of dealing with their vulnerabilities and mitigating sophisticated cyber-attacks.


Topics of interest
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Blockchain applications in IoT
  • Cyber-threat intelligence
  • Game-theoretic security for IoT
  • Identity management and access control for IoT
  • IoT and cloud forensics
  • Lightweight cryptography for IoT
  • Malware detection and mitigation
  • Network intrusion detection/mitigation
  • Privacy and data protection in IoT
  • Security in mobile applications
  • System and data integrity
  • Trust management for IoT

Important Dates

  • Paper submission due: August 19, 2018 (extended, firm)
  • Acceptance notification: September 5, 2018
  • Camera-ready copies: September 15, 2018
