IEEE Percom Workshop on Security, Privacy, and Trust in the Internet of Things (SPT-IoT)
- Kassel, Germany
- Mar 22, 2021 - Mar 26, 2021
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel design paradigm, envisioned as a network of billions or trillions of “Things” communicating with one another and rapidly gaining global attention from academia, industry, and government. Pervasive computing is at the heart of IoT and forms a fundamental building block necessary to realize the IoT.
Equipped with pervasive technologies such as RFID and smart dust together with tiny sensors, actuators, and machine-to-machine (M2M) communication technologies, IoT has the potential to offer innovative solutions to global challenges faced by aging populations, growing cost of healthcare, climate change, biosecurity, as well as how we manage our environment and natural resources.
The heterogeneous nature of the IoT, as well as the computational constraints of many of the building blocks of the IoT, make security, privacy, and trust an extremely challenging problem to solve on one hand, while security, privacy, and trust play a critical role for most, if not all, applications of IoT in domains such as surveillance, healthcare, security, transport, food safety, manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management. Without effective solutions for security, privacy, and trust, reliable data fusion and mining, qualified services with context-aware intelligence and enhanced user acceptance and experience cannot be achieved.
The IEEE Percom Workshop on Security, Privacy and Trust for IoT aims to provide a forum that brings together researchers from academia as well as practitioners from industry, standardization bodies, and government to meet and exchange ideas on recent research and future directions for the IoT with a specific focus on IoT security, privacy, and trust.
The technical discussion will be focused on the communications and network security aspects of IoT and the key enabling technologies for IoT, especially M2M communications and networking, RFID technology and Near Field Communications (NFC), the challenges to security, privacy and trust presented, and novel approaches to solving these challenges. The technical topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- IoT secure access network technologies and capillary networks
- IoT secure network infrastructure
- IoT security protocols nd IoT networking and communication security
- Methods for secure by design IoT
- Methods for IoT security analysis and audit
- Identification and biometrics in IoT
- Security of big data in IoT
- Privacy and anonymization techniques in IoT
- Cyber-physical systems security
- Circuit and system design for secure “Things”
- Secure firmware and secure firmware update for “Things”
