16th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing (PDP 2008)

February 13-15 2008
Toulouse, France

Special Session on "Security in Networked and Distributed Systems"

Paper submission deadline: August 1, 2007

Security has become a vital issue in networked and distributed systems. While attack tools, such as worms, viruses, DDoS, spyware, and other malware have become more powerful and easy-to-use, interest has greatly increased in the field of building distributed, adaptive, active and intelligent defense systems. Finding effective ways to protect networked and distributed systems and data is a very challenging research problem. Special Session on "Security in Networked and Distributed Systems" aims to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in multiple disciplines concerning security in distributed systems to exchange ideas and to learn the latest developments in this important field. We will focus on issues related to network and distributed system security, such as authentication, access control, confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, dependability and sustainability of distributed systems. Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions to the theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems are solicited for submission.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive security
  • Applied cryptography
  • Authentication, authorization and access control
  • Computer and network forensics
  • Data mining, machine learning, and bio-inspired approaches for security
  • Deception systems and honeypots
  • Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
  • Digital rights management
  • Internet and web security
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Malware
  • Risk analysis and risk management
  • Security and privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing
  • Security evaluation
  • Security for grid computing
  • Security of emerging technologies (sensor, wireless, peer-to-peer networks)
  • Security modeling and simulation
  • Security policies
  • Security protocols
  • Survivability
  • Trust management
