Third International Workshop on Lightweight Cryptography
for Security & Privacy (LightSEC 2014)

September 1-2, 2014
Istanbul, Turkey

Submission Deadline : June 1, 2014

*ABOUT LightSEC 2014*
LightSEC 2014 promotes and initiates novel research on the security &
privacy issues for applications that can be termed as lightweight
security, due to the associated constraints on metrics such as available
power, energy, computing ability, area, execution time, and memory
requirements. As such applications are becoming ubiquitous, providing an
immense value to society, they are also affecting a greater portion of
the public & leading to a plethora of economical & security and privacy
related concerns.
