The 4th International Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile 
Information and Communication Systems

Mobisec 2012, Frankfurt, Germany
25 - 27 June 2012

* Kim Cameron, Distinguished Engineer and Chief Architect, Microsoft
* Prof. Dr. Kai Rannenberg, Deutsche Telekom Chair of Mobile Business & 
Multilateral Security, Goethe University Frankfurt
* Amardeo Sarma, Deputy General Manager, NEC Laboratories

MobiSec's focus is the convergence of information and communication 
technology in mobile scenarios. This convergence is realised in 
intelligent mobile devices, accompanied
by the advent of next-generation communication networks. Privacy and 
security aspects need to be covered at all layers of mobile networks, 
from mobile devices, to privacy respecting credentials and mobile 
identity management, up to machine-to-machine communications.

In particular, mobile devices such as Smartphones and Internet Tablets 
have been very successful in commercialization. However, their security 
mechanisms are not always able to deal with the growing trend of 
information-stealing attacks. As mobile communication and information 
processing becomes a commodity, economy and society require protection 
of this precious resource. Mobility and trust in networking go hand in 
hand for future generations of users, who need privacy and security at 
all layers of technology. In addition, the introduction of new data 
collection practices and data-flows (e.g. sensing data) from the mobile 
device makes it more difficult to understand the new security and 
privacy threats introduced.

MobiSec strives to bring together the leading-edge of academia and 
industry in mobile systems security, as well as practitioners, standards 
developers and policymakers. Contributions may range from architecture 
designs and implementations to cryptographic solutions for mobile and 
resource-constrained devices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following focus 

Smartphone Security and Privacy:

* Advanced Security Mechanisms
* Virtualisation Solutions
* Rogue Mobile Application Detection and Protection
* Forensic Analysis

Machine-to-Machine Secure Communication:

* Device Identities and Authentication
* Remote Integrity Validation and Remediation
* Remote Management and Provisioning
* Machine-to-Machine Application Layer Security
* Secure Elements and Trusted Environments

Privacy and Security in Emerging Mobile Applications and Services:

* Privacy-respecting Authentication
* Mobile Identity Management
* Mobile Wallets, Mobile Payments
* Location-based Services and Mobile Sensing
