The Security Track will address all the security aspects of design, implementation, deployment, architectures and modelling of heterogeneous wired and wireless computer networks, of the virtualization technology, as well as of the pervasive computer applications. It will also provide dynamic forums for researchers, students and professionals to present their research results and development in these areas and will offer the opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation of on-going research relevant to information and system security.

Topic areas of interest of this track include, but are not limited to:

  • Authentication protocols and services authorization
  • Data and system integrity and confidentiality
  • Availability of secure services
  • Key Distribution and management, PKI and security management
  • Trust models and Trust establishment
  • Identity management, authentication and access control
  • Deployment and management of computer/network security policies
  • Monitoring Design for security, distributed Intrusion Detection Systems & Countermeasures
  • Single and multi-source intrusion detection and response
  • Traffic filtering and Firewalling
  • IPv6 security, IPSec, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs)
  • Privacy, contract agreements, and payment systems
