WESS 2009 : 4th Workshop on Embedded Systems Security
Call For Papers
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 the following:
* Security planning and provisioning for embedded systems.
* Security of Internet-enabled embedded systems.
* Power-related attacks and countermeasures.
* Timing-related attacks and countermeasures.
* Novel attacks and countermeasures.
* Security of sensor networks both wired and wireless.
* Security engineering.
* Case studies.
The proceedings of the workshop will be published by the ACM.
Paper must be submitted in PDF form through the EDAS system. Submitted papers
should present original research that is unpublished and not submitted
elsewhere. Papers should be no more than 10 pages 2-column in ACM format.
Templates for the submission of papers can be found at the ACM website:
