CYSARM 2019: 1st Workshop on Cyber-Security Arms Race, 
November 15, 2019, 
London, UK, 
co-located with the 26th ACM Conference on Computer 
and Communications Security. 
(Submission deadline: 14 July 2019, 11:59 PM (AoE, UTC-12))

Cybersecurity is a complex ecosystem that is based on several
contradicting requirements. For this reason, it is often defined as an
arms race between attackers and defenders: for example, when a new
security model or algorithm is devised, it could act as a double-edged
sword since it might both enhance the security posture of a system and
introduce additional vulnerabilities. The goal of CYSARM workshop is
to foster collaboration and discussion among cyber-security
researchers and practitioners to discuss the various facets and
trade-offs of cybersecurity and how new security technologies and
algorithms might impact the security of existing or future security

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-Advanced cryptographic techniques (e.g., homomorphic encryption, secure 
  multi-party computation and differential privacy)
-Arms races and trade-offs in cyber-security (e.g., attackers vs 
  defenders, security vs privacy, security vs trust, security vs 
  usability, etc.)
-Double-edged sword techniques in cyber-security (e.g., artificial 
-Impact of quantum computing on cyber-security (not limited to cryptography)
-Next-generation trustworthy computing security solutions and attacks 
  (e.g., TPMs, TEEs, SGX, SE), and their impact
-Novel attacks and protection solutions in mobile, IoT and Cloud
-Post-quantum cryptography
-Security analysis of protocols, including use of formal techniques
-Standardization of cyber security and trust techniques
-Validation of cyber-security technologies
