CPS-Sec-International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security

The International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security (CPS-Sec) will be hed in Conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) 2016 in Philadelphia, PA USA, on 17-19 October 2016.

The International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security (CPS-Sec) seeks novel submissions describing practical and theoretical solutions to the cyber security challenges facing CPS and Internet of Things. Submissions may represent any application area for CPS.  Hence, papers that are pertinent to the security of embedded systems, Internet of Things, SCADA Systems, Smart-Grid Systems, Critical Infrastructure Networks, Transportation Systems, Medical Devices are all welcome.  Work-in-progress submissions are also welcome. Example topics of interest are given below, but are not limited to:  

  • Secure CPS architectures
  • Authentication mechanisms 
  • Access control 
  • Key management 
  • Data security and privacy
