Workshop PASS4IoT

4th Workshop on Privacy, Data Assurance, Security Solutions in the Internet of Things (PASS4IoT)

colocated to COLLABORATECOM 2019

August 19-22, 2019
London, Great Britain

The Internet of Things (IoT) are unleashing the next wave of innovations due to its inherent capability of interconnecting everything in physical world. The IoT does have the massive potential of providing social and economic benefits, however, the privacy, data assurances, and security are main concerns in IoT, and many challenging issues need to be tackled quickly and effectively. One significant challenge is the exposed security and privacy concerns since the globally connected devices pose more hidden security and privacy risks. On the other hand, it is very difficult to deploy advanced cryptographic algorithms and protocols due to hardware constraints. To pave the way for a brighter Cloud-IoT future, many technological aspects need to be considered, such as data security, privacy, access control, information assurance, trust management, secure service interoperability, and mobility. This workshop is focusing on exploiting feasible ways of improving privacy, security, and data assurance in Cloud computing, IoT and promoting IoT applications.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Dynamic trust management for IoT applications
  • Privacy and security issues in IoT
  • Physical-layer security
  • Cyber-physical system
  • SCADA system security
  • Trustworthy users interfaces
  • Blockchain in IoT
  • Lightweight cryptography for IoT
  • Secure Machine-to-machine communications
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Vulnerability, exploitation tools, Malware, Botnet, DDoS attacks
  • Mobile security, Android security, and trusted devices
  • Security metrics and performance evaluation, traffic analysis techniques
  • Social, economic and policy issues of trust, security and privacy
  • Security on low-power computing devices;
  • Trust establishment in IoT users;
  • Forensics in IoT;


Workshop papers will published together with COLLABORATECOM proceedings.
