ACNS'07 -- 5th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and 
Network Security
5-8 June, 2007
Zhuhai, China
Submission deadline: 14 December 2006

ACNS'07, the 5th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and 
Network Security, brings together industry and academic researchers 
interested in the technical aspects of cryptology and the latest 
advances in the application of crypto systems. Original papers on all 
aspects of applied cryptography and network security are solicited for 
submission to ACNS '07. Topics of relevance include but are not limited to:

- Applied cryptography and provably-secure cryptographic protocols
- Design and analysis of efficient cryptographic primitives: public-key 
  and symmetric-key cryptosystems, block ciphers, and hash functions
- Network security protocols
- Techniques for anonymity; trade-offs between anonymity and utility
- Integrating security into the next-generation Internet: DNS security, 
  routing, naming, denial-of-service attacks, TCP/IP, secure multicast
- Economic fraud on the Internet: phishing, pharming, spam, and click fraud
- Email and web security
- Public key infrastructure, key management, certification, and revocation
- Security and privacy for emerging technologies: sensor networks, 
  mobile (ad hoc) networks, peer-to-peer networks, bluetooth, 802.11, RFID
- Trust metrics and robust trust inference in distributed systems
- Security and usability
- Intellectual property protection: metering, watermarking, and digital 
  rights management
- Modeling and protocol design for rational and malicious adversaries
- Automated analysis of protocols
