Sanya, China, October 10 - 12, 2012

We are living in the ubiquitous cyber networking environments and communicate on the move (COM). The cyber communication intervolves with the Internet, cellular networks, city/community Wi-Fi mesh, air satellite, vehicle networks, body networks, personal networks, enterprise and private networks, and many others. Some wireless communications are even covert and prevent to be detected or intercepted by the regular energy detectors. Cyber attacks are currently prevailing in all these networks, user networking devices, and the applications. They are even more complex and malicious. Consequently, the detections and preventions of these cyber attacks are unprecedentedly complicated. Eavesdropping, signaling jamming, DoD, sinkholes, Sybil, wormholes, spoofing, flooding, trust poisoning are old security problems but they are still challenging our brain. On the other hands, new vulnerabilities such as ClickBot.A are emerging every day and they are even more stealthy and intelligent. Moreover, new network protocols and applications open new channels for adversaries to take advantage. Clouds bring us new application along with new vulnerabilities that we have to investigate. CSP solicits previously unpublished research papers in any aspect of network communication, application, and computer security or privacy in the theory, design, implementation, prototype, analysis, evaluation, testing, verification, or empirical results of secure systems.

Authors are invited to submit original technical papers covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below:

• Cryptography and key algorithms
• Security modeling and vulnerability analysis
• Intrusion detection, traffic analysis and decision making of security
• Information integrity, assurance, trustworthy, authentication, and access control
• Distributed data storage and secure data management outsourcing (e.g., database as a service)
• Protocol security and privacy policies
• Distributed systems security
• Embedded systems security and forensics
• Network security and malware
• Networking protocols and security trace back
• Accountability and anonymity
• Security architectures, policy, and regulatory
• Hardware, application, and system security
• Censorship and censorship-resistance
• Language-based security
• Privacy-preserving systems
• Usability/energy/cost/efficiency of security in the network
• Security protocols and strategies in clouds, sensor, cognitive, ad hoc, mesh, and satellite networks
