SNDS 2010 - Special Session "Security in Networked and Distributed Systems"
on 18th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and
network-based Processing (PDP 2010), Pisa, Italy, February 17-19, 2010
(Submissions due 24 August 2009)

SNDS 2010 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners involved in
multiple disciplines concerning security in distributed systems to exchange
ideas and to learn the latest developments in this important field. We will
focus on issues related to network and distributed system security.
Previously unpublished papers offering novel research contributions to the
theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems are
solicited for submission. Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer
Society. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: 
- Adaptive security 
- Applied cryptography 
- Authentication, authorization and access control 
- Computer and network forensics 
- Data mining, machine learning, and bio-inspired approaches for security 
- Deception systems and honeypots 
- Denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures 
- Digital rights management 
- Embedded System Security
- Internet and web security 
- Intrusion detection and prevention 
- Malware 
- Reputation based security
- Risk analysis and risk management 
- Security and privacy in pervasive and ubiquitous computing 
- Security evaluation 
- Security for grid computing 
- Security of emerging technologies (sensor, wireless, peer-to-peer networks) 
- Security modeling and simulation 
- Security policies 
- Security protocols 
- Software security 
- Survivability 
- Tamper resistance
- Trust management 
- Trusted computing
