Workshop Background and Goals
For most people, the term ”security” refers to cryptographic algorithms, biometric authentication techniques, passwords, etc. Beyond these intuitive notions, security is rather a very broad topic and may be viewed from a variety of other perspectives, including new access control models, software architectures for security systems, and security policies specifications.
Pervasive environments are the prime field for applying security due to the high frequency of attacks and incompatibilities detected in these types of environments. This situation results from the distributed nature of pervasive environments, mobility of users and devices, services heterogeneity and the different capabilities of devices used to access these services.
The aim of this workshop is to point the research community to better consider context-based security as a new trend that may face future more subtle security attacks. We believe that the force of a good security system should not rely only on the force of security protocols but also on the way it copes with new and completely unpredictable situations or at least learn from new situations and updates its behavior accordingly. This goal can be reached by making future security solutions freely adaptive.
We look for original submissions on the following topics (but not limited to):
• Dynamic security policies
Format of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of oral presentations. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book by ICEIS with ISBN.
Submission of Papers
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for oral presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only full papers in English will be accepted, and the length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages. Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available at the ICEIS web site. Postscript/RTF versions of the manuscript should be submitted thru ICEIS web-based paper submission procedure.
Full paper submission: February 15, 2005
