Call For Papers

Workshop on Collaborative Security Technologies (CoSec 2009)

in conjunction with the

3rd International Conference on
Internet Multimedia Systems Architecture and Application (IMSAA-09)
Bangalore, India
9 - 11 December 2009

The increasing number of Internet-scale threats is becoming a serious concern for any organization which is connected to the Internet. With decreasing large-scale computing and networking costs,attackers are sufficiently equipped to carry out wide-ranged long-lived collaborative attacks on a single target. Attackers have learned the power of collaboration and knowledge-sharing, as proven by multiple cases wherein similar attack code or patterns (albeit at different scales) have been used to target individuals, small-medium businesses or large corporations alike.

The security community has always benefited from knowledge-sharing to work together in developing sturdy solutions. Can a similar approach be applied to define collaboration-based security technologies which can prove to be more resistive against co-ordinated attacks? This workshop on Collaborative Security Technologies (CoSec), aims to discuss whether an approach based on the ‘United we stand, but divided we fall’ can be applied to security technologies as well. This workshop is a first of its kind, focusing on discussion of how a given security concept can be exponentially more useful when used in a collaborative way across a given set of nodes, rather than working in a stand-alone mode. Some of the technical areas wherein we believe the collaborative nature of security technologies can be applicable are as follows.

- Collaborative defence against DDoS attacks
- Collaborative approaches against web-based attack (phishing etc) detection and protection
- Social networking-based collaboration for malware detection and quarantining
- Collaborative Policies definition and enforcement across administrative boundaries
- Collaborative responsibility for Privacy enforcement of multi-domain information
- Collaborative forensics
- Collaboration within Govt. and Public Safety organizations against national security concerns
- Collaborative or Distributed versions of well-known security protocols
- Multi-domain or Multi-technology-based collaboration for generating an end-to-end views of a global or large-scale attack patterns and their mitigation
- Augmentation methods for review of Security logs and information from multiple sources
