The First International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Big Data
(BigSecurity 2013, conjunct with Globecom 2013)

http://www.nsp.org.au/CFP/BigSecurity/

Scope and Topics of Interest
As we are deep into the Information Age, we also witness the explosive
growth of data available on the Internet. For example, human beings create
about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day in 2012, which come from
sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things,
enterprise and Internet in all scales and formats. We face one of the most
challenging issues, i.e., how to effectively manage such a large amount of
data and identify new ways to analyze large amounts of data and unlock
information. The issue is also known as Big Data, which has been emerging
as a hot topic in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)
research.

Security and privacy issue is critical for Big Data. Many works have been
carried out focusing on business, application and information processing
level from big data, such as data mining and analysis.  However, security
and privacy issues in Big Data are seldom mentioned to date. Due to its
extraordinary scale, security and privacy in Big Data faces many
challenges, such as efficient encryption and decryption algorithms,
encrypted information retrieval, attribute based encryption, attacks on
availability, reliability and integrity of Big Data.

The purpose of this workshop is to offer a timely venue for researchers and
industry partners to present and discuss their latest results in security
and privacy related work of Big Data.
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Threat and Vulnerability Analysis in Big Data
- Architecture for Security and Privacy in Big Data
- Encrypted Information Retrieval in Big Data
- Cryptanalysis and Applications in Big Data
- Lightweight Cryptographic Algorithms in Big Data
- Trust in Big Data
- Network Security, Privacy in Big Data
- Network Forensics in Big Data
- Anonymous Communication in Big Data
- Physical Layer Security in Big Data
- Privacy and Security in Cloud Data
- Privacy and Security in Data Center Networks
- Application Level Security and Privacy in Big Data
- Attacks and Counter Measures in Big Data
- Information Forensics in Big Data
- Secure Cross-layer Design in Big Data
- Identity Management and Key Management in Big Data
- Intrusion Detection and Response in Big Data
- Security and Privacy in Complex Networks
- Malware and Virus Detection in Big Data
- Biometric Security and Forensics in Big Data
- Reliability and Availability in Big Data
- Network Security in Big Data
- Network Privacy in Big Data
- Security and Privacy Theories in Big Data
