in conjunction with

International Conference on Information Technology: Coding and Computing
(ITCC 2004)
The Orleans, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Information assurance is now a top research priority. Finding effective
ways to protect information systems, networks and sensitive data within the
critical information infrastructure is challenging even with the most
advanced technology and trained professionals. This track aims to bring
together individuals involved in multiple disciplines of information
security and assurance to foster exchange of ideas. This special track
invites authors to submit original contributions of not more than 8 pages
which include, but are not limited to the following topics of interest:

* Authentication
* Data protection
* Computer forensics
* Internet and www security
* Information and data integrity
* Intrusion detection
* Data and system integrity
* Authorization and access control
* Information warfare and cyber-terrorism
* Security models and architectures
* Risk analysis and risk management

* Cryptography and coding
* Cryptographic protocols
* E-commerce protocols
* Agent and mobile code security
* Security in sensor networks
* Biometrics
* Key management
* Steganography
* Homeland security
