SPIFEC 2017: 1st European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Fog and
Edge Computing (In conjunction with ESORICS 2017)

Oslo, Norway, September 14-15, 2017

Website: https://www.nics.uma.es/pub/spifec



The main goal of Fog Computing and other related Edge paradigms, such
as Multi-Access Edge Computing, is to decentralize the Cloud and bring
some of its services closer to the edge of the network, where data are
generated and decisions are made. Cloud-enabled edge platforms will be
able to cooperate not only with each other but with the cloud,
effectively creating a collaborative and federated environment. This
paradigm shift will fulfill the needs of novel services, such as
augmented reality, that have particularly stringent requirements like
extremely low latency. It will also help improve the vision of the
Internet of Things by improving its scalability and overall
functionality, among other benefits.

To enable this vision, a number of platforms and technologies need to
securely coexist, including sensors and actuators, edge-deployed
systems, software-defined networks, hardware virtualization, data
mining mechanisms, etc. However, this paradigm shift calls for new
security challenges and opportunities to leverage services for new
scenarios and applications. The field of edge computing security is
almost unexplored, and demands further attention from the research
community and industry in order to unleash the full potential of this


This workshop expects original research papers on, but not limited to,
the topics described below:

 o  Edge devices security
 o  Attacks and Countermeasures to Edge computing platforms
 o  Authentication and Access control in Edge computing
 o  Accountability and Accounting in Edge computing
 o  Identity management systems in Edge computing
 o  Secure federation of Edge computing devices
 o  Secure Orchestration and Management of Edge devices
 o  Secure Software-Defined Networking for Edge computing
 o  Secure Virtualization in Edge Computing
 o  Secure Migration of resources in Edge Computing
 o  Data and Computation integrity in Edge Computing
 o  Trust and Reputation Management in Edge computing
 o  Privacy in Edge Computing
 o  Intrusion Detection and Prevention systems for Edge computing
 o  Digital Forensics in Edge Computing
 o  Risk Analysis in Edge Computing
 o  Incident Management in Edge Computing
