IEEE INFOCOM 2020  BigSecurity Workshop: Security and Privacy in Big Data
April 27, 2020
Beijing, China

*Scope and Topics of Interest*

We are in the age of big data. The availability of big data sets
significantly promoted the advancement of artificial intelligence and
machine learning. Moreover, the appearance of big data also introduces
unprecedented challenges to numerous fields, such as information storage,
networking for big data transportation, small probability research, and so
on. We have witnessed the extensive applications of big data in practice,
including automatic manufacturing, driverless cars, Internet of Things,
social networks, and so forth.

Security and privacy issue is a critical problem in this big data age. Many
works have been carried out focusing on business, application and
information processing level of big data, such as data mining and data
analysis. We have seen many activities in these fields.  However, security
and privacy issues in big data from communications and networking
perspective are not extensively explored yet to date. Due to its
extraordinary scale, security and privacy in big data faces many
challenges, such as generative adversary networks, efficient encryption and
decryption algorithms, encrypted information retrieval, attribute based
encryption, attacks on availability, reliability and integrity, privacy
aware machine learning, privacy protection in big data information

The purpose of this workshop is to offer a timely venue for researchers and
industry partners in communications and networking domains to present and
discuss their latest results in security and privacy related work of big

We focus on the security and privacy issues in communications and
networking fields from the following perspectives, but are not limited to:

 -     Generative adversary networks
 -     Machine learning
 -     Artificial intelligence
 -     Differential privacy
 -     Driverless vehicular systems
 -     Internet of Things
 -     Social networks
 -     Block chain systems.
 -     Cloud and fog systems
 -     Threat and vulnerability analysis
 -     Cryptography systems
 -     Trust and forensics
 -     Anonymous communication
 -     E-health and aged care
 -     Attacks and counter measures
 -     Complex networks
