IEEE SERVICES Workshop on 
Cyber Security and Resilience in the Internet of Things
Milan, Italy, July 8-13, 2019


The technological and industrial revolution brought by the Internet of
Things (IoT) comes with new forms of threats and attacks that exploit the
inherent complexity and heterogeneity of IoT networks. There are many
recent examples of attacks that exploit IoT devices to perform large-scale
distributed denial of service attacks, to spy on people, and to hijack
communication links, therefore delivering full control of anything that is
remotely accessible to an attacker. Those attacks deeply affect the
operation of a number of services that are vital for the society
functioning as energy, transport, communications, and so on. Moreover, IoT
is largely used in monitoring activities of complex systems as smart city,
industrial plant, health systems, bridges, and so forth. Because of that,
if an IoT system experiences an attack, it should still exhibit resilience
in the form of grateful degradation and/or survival and fast recovery
(bounce-back/bounce-forward) of the functionality from the eventual failure
or misbehavior. IoT resilience is here to understand the strategies and
methods for a cyber-attack absorption and infrastructure operational
recovery and needs to be considered as an integral part of the IOT Cyber
Security landscape. The workshop focuses on both the theoretical &
practical aspects of the security, privacy, trust and resilience of IoT
networks, devices, applications, and services as well as novel ways of
dealing with their vulnerabilities and mitigating sophisticated

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Blockchain applications in IoT
* Cyber-threat intelligence
* Game-theoretic security for IoT
* Identity management and access control for IoT
* IoT and cloud forensics
* Lightweight cryptography for IoT
* Malware detection and mitigation
* Network intrusion detection/mitigation
* Privacy and data protection in IoT
* Security in mobile applications
* System and data integrity
* Trust management for IOT
* Operation recovery and continuity in IOT
* Cyber-attack resiliency IoT architecture
* Cyber Threat adaptive capacity in IOT
