SIXTH WORKSHOP IN INFORMATION SECURITY THEORY AND PRACTICE (WISTP 2012)

SIXTH WORKSHOP IN INFORMATION SECURITY THEORY AND PRACTICE (WISTP 2012)
Security and Trust in Computing Systems and Ambient Intelligence Ecosystem
June 19-22, 2012, London, UK – http://www.wistp.org/

WISTP 2012 BACKGROUND AND GOALS
Future ICT technologies, like the concepts of Ambient Intelligence and 
Internet of Things provide a vision of the Information Society where 
the emphasis is on surrounding people by intelligent interactive 
interfaces and objects and on environments that are capable of 
recognising and reacting to the presence of different individuals 
in a seamless, unobtrusive and invisible manner. 
The success of future ICT technologies, some of which are set as 
priorities by the European Union, will depend on how secure they 
will be made, how privacy and individuals' rights will be protected 
and how individuals will come to trust the intelligent world that 
will surround them and through which they will move. 
WISTP 2012 aims to address the security and privacy issues that are 
increasingly exposed by mobile and wireless communications and related 
services, along with evaluating their impact on business, 
individuals, and the society.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting 
novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security 
and privacy of mobile and smart devices, as well as experimental studies 
of fielded systems based on wireless communication, the application 
of security technology, the implementation of systems, and lessons learned. 
We encourage submissions from other communities such as law, 
business and policy that present these communities' perspectives on 
technological issues. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 

* Security, Privacy and Trust in the Internet of Things
* Security and Trustworthiness in mobile and wireless networks
 including Mobile ad hoc networks, RFID systems, 
 Wireless sensor networks and Vehicular networks  
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Smart Environments
* Security, Privacy and Trust in Social Networks and Social Worlds
* Trustworthy life-logging
* Security, Privacy and Trust in e-Government and Mobile Commerce
 including Biometrics and national ID cards 
* Human behaviour and psychological aspects of security
 including User centric security and privacy
* Lightweight cryptography
* Privacy enhancing technologies (PETs)
* Mobile code security
* Mobile devices security
* Smart card security
* Embedded systems security
* Security models and architectures
 including Security and privacy policies, 
 Authentication and Access Control, and Security protocols
