Call For Papers


4th IEEE/IFIP International Workshop on
Security for Emerging Distributed Network Technologies (DISSECT)

In conjunction with IEEE/IFIP
Network Operations and Management Symposium (NOMS 2018)

23 April 2018 // Taipei, Taiwan

* 5th Jan 2018 Paper Submission Deadline


*** Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
version to a Special Issue of the International Journal on Network
Management on Security for Emerging Open Networking Technologies ***

The computer networking landscape is subject to a multitude of changes
that occur very rapidly. First, paradigm shifts such as fog computing,
mobile edge computing, Named Data Networking (NDN) and emerging open
networking technologies such as Software-Defined Networking (SDN),
Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Programmable Networks are
reshaping the way networks are designed, deployed, and managed. The
benefits are manifold, including an unprecedented flexibility for
network operation and management, and a favorable environment for
delivering innovative network applications and services. However,
those paradigm shifts bring a multitude of security challenges that
have to be addressed in order to provide secure, trustworthy, and
privacy-preserving data communication and network services. Second,
large scale and distributed deployment of mobile communications,
Internet-of-Things (IoT), Intelligent Transport Systems, smart grids
or industrial systems has become real but also emphasizes particular
privacy and security issues to be overcome, especially when
interconnected with Internet.

Addressing all these challenges may require not only revisiting
existing solutions (e.g., for intrusion detection, privacy preserving,
and resilience against attacks), but also designing novel security and
resilience schemes tailored to the specific design of open networking
technologies and infrastructures. New types of attacks and threats
also appear against usual services over Internet such as DNS or
routing. DISSECT 2018 follows the track of its four previous editions,
and will put focus on security issues and challenges arising with the
emergence of novel networking technologies and paradigms but also on
new threats emerging against former services and technologies, towards
a secure cognitive management in a cyber-world. The workshop will shed
light on new challenges and present state-of-the-art research on the
various security aspects of next-generation networking technologies
and service management frameworks.

DISSECT will offer a venue for bringing together students,
researchers, and professionals from academia and industry sharing
common interest on security challenges related to the design and
management of the distributed networks and infrastructures. DISSECT is
intended to (1) discussing these challenges as well as future trends
on security management, (2) presenting and discussing work-in-progress
security-related research on cutting-edge technologies, and (3)
strengthening collaboration and research ties among peers.

Topics of Interest:

The industry and academia research community will be invited
to contribute with manuscripts describing novel, work-in-progress
research on the design of solutions to relevant security issues on a
wide variety of next generation networking technologies. The topics of
interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to

- Secure and resilient design and deployment of open networking
- Privacy-preserving solutions
- Security models and threats
- Security and privacy properties and policies
- Verification and enforcement of security properties
- Trust and identity management
- NFV-based security functions and services
- Security of software-defined infrastructures, protocols and
- Threat modeling
- Security measurement and monitoring
- Industrial Control System security
- Security and availability management
- Security for Internet of Things
- Intrusion detection, tolerance, and prevention
- Network forensics and auditing
- Detection and resilience against large-scale distributed attacks
- Security of programmable components
- Security-related business and legal aspects
- Security challenges and trends for open networking technologies
- Secure programmable data plane
- Collaborative intrusion detection
- Security for 5G technology
- Blockchain and distributed consensus
