4th Annual PKI R&D Workshop: Multiple Paths to Trust April 19-21, 2005 NIST -- Gaithersburg, MD Website: http://middleware.internet2.edu/pki05/ Registration Fee: $125.00 This workshop considers the full range of public key technology used for security decisions and supporting functionalities, including authentication, authorization, identity (syndication, federation,and aggregation), and trust. This year, the workshop has a particular interest in how PKI and emerging trust mechanisms will interact with each other at technical, policy and user levels to support trust models that lack a central authority. This workshop has three goals: 1. Explore the current state of public key technology and emerging trust mechanisms in different domains including web services; grid technologies; authentication systems, et. al., in academia, research, government, and industry. 2. Share & discuss lessons learned and scenarios from vendors and practitioners on current deployments. 3. Provide a forum for leading security researchers to explore the issues relevant to PKI space in areas of security management, identity, trust, policy, authentication, and authorization. CALL FOR PAPERS We solicit papers, case studies, panel proposals, and participation from researchers, systems architects, vendor engineers, and users. Submitted works should address one or more critical areas of inquiry. Topics include (but are not limited to): - Federated versus Non-Federated trust models - Standards related to PKI and security decision systems such as x509, SDSI/SPKI, PGP, XKMS, XACML, XRML, XML signature, and SAML. - Cryptographic and alternative methods for supporting security decisions, including the characterization and encoding of data - Intersection of policy based systems and PKI - Privacy protection and implications - Scalability of security systems - Security of the components of PKI systems - Security Infrastructures for constrained environments - Improved human factor designs for security-related interfaces including authorization and policy management, naming, use of multiple private keys, and selective disclosure - New paradigms in PKI architectures - Reports of real-world experience with the use and deployment of PKI, including future research directions Deadlines for conference paper and panel submissions are: - Papers and Proposals Due: October 29, 2004 - Authors Notified: December 10, 2004 - Final Materials Due: February 18, 2005 Submissions should be provided electronically, in PDF, for standard US letter-size paper (8.5 x 11 inches). Paper submissions must not exceed 15 pages (single space, two column format with 1" margins using a 10 pt or larger font) and have no header or footer text (e.g., no page numbers). Proposals for panels should be no longer than five pages and include possible panelists and an indication of which panelists have confirmed availability. Please submit the following information to email@example.com: - Name, affiliation, email, phone, postal address for the primary contact author - First name, last name, and affiliation of each co-author - The finished paper in PDF format as an attachment. All submissions will be acknowledged. Submissions of papers must not substantially duplicate work that any of the authors have published elsewhere or have submitted in parallel to any other conferences or journals. Accepted papers will be published in a proceedings of the workshop. REGISTRATION The registration fee of $125 per person includes workshop materials, coffee breaks, lunches, and a dinner. There will be no on-site registration. Please pre-register by April 12, 2005 at https://rproxy.nist.gov/CRS (scroll to the meeting).
