The 2011 IEEE International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Internet of Things

(IEEE SPIoT 2011)

In conjunction with

The 10th IEEE International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications (IEEE TrustCom-11)

November 16-18, 2011, Changsha, China



Call for Papers

With the extensive research and development of computer, communication and control technologies, it is possible to connect all things to the Internet such that the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) can be formed. These things may be equipped with devices such as sensors, actuators, and RFID tags, in order to allow people and things to be connected anytime and anywhere, with anything and anyone. IoT will enable collaborations and communications among people and things, and among things themselves, which expand the current Internet and will radically change our personal, corporate, and community environments. When more and more things connect to the Internet, security and privacy issues become more serious, especially in the case that these things are equipped with actuators and can support control. It is essential to consider the security and privacy implications of billions of intelligent things cooperating with real and virtual entities over the Internet. SPIoT 2011 aims at providing a forum for discussing the latest academic and industrial research results in all aspects of security and privacy in IoT. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

l  Security and privacy architectures for IoT

l  Security and privacy platforms for IoT

l  Security and privacy applications for IoT

l  Cryptographic primitives for constrained things

l  Resilience to external and internal attacks in IoT

l  Identifying, authenticating, and authorizing entities in IoT

l  Information accountability in IoT

l  Privacy risks and massive data management in IoT

l  Context-aware security in IoT

l  Web services security and other application-layer issues in IoT



All accepted papers from this workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society in TrustCom-11 conference/workshop proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP). Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in two special issues: (1) Elsevier's Journal of Computer and System Sciences (JCSS); (2) Wiley's Security and Communication Networks (SCN), both to be indexed by SCI and EI.
