SECITC brings together computer security researchers, cryptographers, industry representatives and graduate students interested in any aspect of information security and privacy. One of SECITC’s primary goals is to bring together security and privacy researchers and professionals from different communities and provide a forum allowing the informal exchanges necessary for the emergence of new scientific and industrial collaborations. SECITC 2016 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10006 and for SECITC 2015 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 9522 in a book titled “Innovative Security Solutions for Information Technology and Communications”. Paper submission and refereeing for SECITC 2017 will take place via EasyChair and the post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
One originality of SECITC is its Exploits Session. In this session, new exploit authors will be invited to explain how exploits were discovered and submit a formal research paper describing their discoveries. While the discovery of new exploits is a high-risk high-gain investment that requires creativity and tenacious work, exploits are usually difficult to publish in mainstream research conferences. Exploit paper acceptance criteria will be the exploit’s nature, novelty and impact.
The conference topics comprise all aspects of information security, including but not limited to the following areas:
Access control, Algorithmic tools for security and cryptography, All aspects of cryptography, Application security, Attacks and defences, Authentication biometry, Censorship and censorship-resistance, Cloud Security, Distributed systems security, Embedded systems security, Digital forensics, Hardware security, Information flow analysis, Internet of Things (IoT) Security, Intrusion detection, Language-based security, Malware, Mobile security and privacy, Network security, New exploits, Policy enforcements, Privacy and anonymity, Protocol security, Reverse-engineering and code obfuscation, Security architectures, Security aspects of alternative currencies, Side channel attacks, Surveillance and anti-surveillance, System security.
