4th ACM Cyber-Physical System Security Workshop (ACM CPSS’18)

4th ACM Cyber-Physical System Security Workshop (ACM CPSS’18)

Incheon, Korea, June 4, 2018 (in conjunction with ACM AsiaCCS’18)
Submission due:  Jan 20, 2018 (GMT) – firm

Conference Outline:

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) consist of large-scale interconnected systems of heterogeneous components interacting with their physical environments. There are a multitude of CPS devices and applications being deployed to serve critical functions in our lives. The security of CPS becomes extremely important. This workshop will provide a platform for professionals from academia, government, and industry to discuss how to address the increasing security challenges facing CPS. Besides invited talks, we also seek novel submissions describing theoretical and practical security solutions to CPS. Papers that are pertinent to the security of embedded systems, IoT, SCADA, smart grid, and critical infrastructure networks are all welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Attack detection for CPS
• Authentication and access control for CPS
• Autonomous vehicle security
• Availability, recovery and auditing for CPS
• Data security and privacy for CPS
• Embedded systems security
• EV charging system security
• Industrial control system security
• IoT security
• Key management in CPS
• Legacy CPS system protection
• Lightweight crypto and security
• Maritime cyber security
• Risk assessment for CPS
• SCADA security
• Security architectures for CPS
• Security by design for CPS
• Smart grid security
• Threat modeling for CPS
• Urban transportation system security
• Vulnerability analysis for CPS
• Wireless sensor network security
