Call for Papers: 2019 ACM IoT S&P Workshop (in conjunction with CCS'19)
IoT S&P 2019

2nd Workshop on the Internet of Things Security and Privacy

Aim and scope

The Internet of Things (IoT) is believed to be the next generation of
the Internet and has deeply influenced our daily lives (e.g., smart
homes, smart cities, smart wearables, and other smart
environments). While bringing convenience to our lives, IoT also
introduces potential security hazards. Since increasing IoT devices
directly process user-generated data, once compromised, leave users or
even the entire smart society at risk. Furthermore, large-scale data
generated by IoT devices also gives opportunities to attackers. For
instance, ever since the first Mirai attacks took place in 2016, IoT
botnets have taken over more powerful DDoS attacks recently.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from academia,
government, and industry to discuss the challenge and solutions
regarding practical and theoretical aspects of IoT security and
privacy. We hope that this workshop will be the main conference for
IoT security of ACM CCS community.

Call for papers

IoT S&P 2019 welcomes original and innovative research on IoT Security
and Privacy from the academia, industry and government. Topics of
interest comprise, but are not limited to:

    Privacy and trust in IoT
    Cryptography protocols and algorithms for IoT
    Data confidentiality, integrity and availability analysis for IoT
    Identity and access management in IoT
    Intrusion and anomaly detection in IoT
    Secure operating systems in IoT
    Models for risk identification and assessment in IoT networks
    Security architecture for the IoT application
    Sensor and actuator attacks
    IoT denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures
    IoT malware analysis
    Security analysis on IoT firmware
    Security analysis on IoT platform
    Vulnerabilities analysis tools for IoT
    Automated exploiting method for IoT vulnerabilities
    Hardware-assisted IoT security
    IoT attacks with novel insights, techniques, or results
    IoT ecosystem-level security analysis
    Other related areas

Paper submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a
conference with proceedings.

Submissions are sought in the following categories:
(i) short papers (6 pages ACM double-column format excluding
references and appendices), and (ii) posters (2 pages).

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at Only PDF files will
be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection
without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the
deadline of (TBD according to the CCS 2019 schedule) to be
considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to
authors by (TBD according to the CCS 2019 schedule). Authors of
accepted papers must guarantee that one of the authors will register
and present the paper at the workshop. Proceedings of the workshop
will be available on a CD to the workshop attendees and will become
part of the ACM Digital Library.
