2nd Workshop on Embedded Systems Security (a Workshop of ACM EMSOFT'2007)
Salzburg, Austria, October 4, 2007

Embedded computing systems are widely adopted in application areas
ranging from safety-critical systems to vital information
management. The inherent characteristics of embedded systems and the
advent of Internet-enabled devices introduce a large number of
security issues. Embedded systems are vulnerable to remote
intrusion, power and timing attacks, hijacking, etc. These
vulnerabilities are different from traditional workstation security
issues due to the physical properties, applications, and performance
limitations of embedded systems.

This workshop provides a forum for researchers to present novel
ideas on addressing security issues that arise in embedded systems.
Of particular interest are security topics that are unique to
embedded systems. Such topics include but are not limited to:

  * Security architectures for embedded systems
  * Security of Internet-enabled embedded systems
  * Security planning and provisioning in embedded systems
  * Power-related attacks and countermeasures
  * Timing-related attacks and countermeasures
  * Novel attacks and countermeasures
  * Security of sensor networks
  * Benchmarks for embedded system security
  * Case studies

Accepted papers will be provided as proceedings to workshop
participants. The best papers will be selected for publication in a
special issue of the Springer Journal of Design Automation for
Embedded Systems.
