IFIP International Conference on 
 Network and Service Security 
 June 24 - 26, 2009 - Paris - France 

N2S'2009 is the First International Conference on Network and Service
Security that will be held from 24 to 26 June, 2009 in Paris, France.

N2S'2009 conference is technically sponsored by IFIP TC6 WG and IEEE
Section France.  The proliferation of heterogeneous and distributed
computer networks and the advanced deployment of pervasive
applications have led to an urgent need for constructing reliable and
efficient approaches where both applications and networking security
issues are addressed jointly. The N2S International Conference will
address all the security aspects of design, implementation,
deployment, architectures and modelling of heterogeneous wired and
wireless computer networks, of the virtualization technology, as well
as of the pervasive computer applications. It will also provide
dynamic forums for researchers, students and professionals to present
their research results and development in these areas and will offer
the opportunity for a more focused exchange of ideas and presentation
of on-going research relevant to information and system security.
Original papers are invited in the area of computer and network
security. Papers must represent high-quality and previously
unpublished work. The research sessions will include presentations of

latest research projects, papers, posters, tutorials, panels, demos, 
industrial track and exhibitions around, but not limited to, the 
following topics: 

- Authentication protocols and services authorization 
- Data and system integrity and confidentiality 
- Availability of secure services
