ACNS 2009 - 7th International Conference on Applied Cryptography and
Network Security, Paris, France, June 2-5, 2009. (Submissions due
January 12, 2009)

ACNS is an annual conference concentrating on current developments that
advance the areas of applied cryptography and its application to systems
and network security. The goal is to represent both academic research
works as well as developments in industrial and technical frontiers.

Original research papers pertaining to all aspects of cryptography and
network security are solicited for submission to ACNS'09. Relevant
topics 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
* 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
* 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
