Workshop on Security for Embedded and Mobile Systems (SEMS 2017) 
Paris, France, 
30 April 2017 
(co-located with Eurocrypt and EuroS&P)



Embedded and mobile devices that provide security and crypto
functionalities, and manage private and confidential data are
omnipresent in our daily lives. Examples of such devices range from
smart cards and RFID tags, to mobile phones, tablets, and IoT
devices. Ensuring the security and privacy of these devices is a
challenging problem, as witnessed by recent breaking of crypto and
security systems used in mobile phones, car keys, and RFID-enabled
cards. Typical threats to extract the keys include side-channel and
fault analysis. Additionally, the vulnerabilities of the devices imply
also privacy concerns. The operating systems supporting some of those
devices, particularly mobile phones and tablets, but also IoT ones,
have become very complex. Various sorts of malware present a constant
threat for users. Although measures like application sandboxing take
place, they also open the court for new attacks by constantly
collecting and organizing sensitive information about the u!  ser.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research results on the following topics of interest:

 -  Security architectures for embedded and mobile systems
 -  Physical (side-channel and fault) attacks on embedded and mobile systems
 -  Hardware security of mobile devices
 -  (mobile) Malware detection and prevention
 -  Machine learning applications to highlight possible threats to user
 -  Privacy-preserving issues for mobile devices
 -  Secure localization and location privacy for mobile devices
 -  Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
 -  Secure execution environments (e.g., TrustZone, TPMs) on mobile devices
 -  Sensor spoofing attacks

The one-day workshop will include presentation of peer-reviewed papers
and two renowned keynote speakers, Prof. Srdjan Capkun (ETH Zurich,
Switzerland) and Prof. Bart Preneel (KU Leuven, Belgium).

*Accepted papers will be published by IEEE as the proceedings in "IEEE
EuroS&P Workshops".
