While there are many definitions of the Internet of Things (IoT), all of them revolve around the same central

concept: a world-wide network of interconnected objects. These objets will make use of multiple technological

building blocks, such as wireless communication, sensors, actuators, and RFID, in order to allow people and

things to be connected anytime anyplace, with anything and anyone. However, before this new vision takes its

first steps, it is essential to consider the security implications of billions of intelligent things

cooperating with other real and virtual entities over the Internet. In fact, we need to plan well in advance

what kind of technological mechanisms, protocols and standard infrastructures we will need in order to protect

the IoT. Failure to do so will result in a weak infrastructure, which will be surely exploited by malicious

entities performing attacks such as accessing personal information or manipulating the elements of the real

world. The setback caused by the lack of trust on the IoT can be disastrous for the realization of this vision.

Securing the IoT is a very complex task, because there are plenty of factors that must be taken into account.

Not only it is necessary to protect its different building blocks, but it is also vital to consider how these

blocks will work together and what kind of interoperable security mechanisms must be created. Besides, there

will be multiple actors, such as human beings, machines, and the very own objects, that will use the services

provided by the IoT, and it is necessary to assure a certain level of security during their cooperation.

Moreover, the management of all the information produced by these interactions raises many security concerns,

such as privacy issues, that must be addressed and solved. Therefore, the goal of this workshop is to bring

together researchers and industry experts in areas relevant to the security of the Internet of Things. As this

workshop is the first in this area, it is also its objective to serve as a forum for not only presenting state

-of-the-art research, but also for debating the role of security and its practical implications in the

development of the IoT.

Topics of interest for the workshop include the following:

* New security problems in the context of the IoT.
* Privacy risks and data management problems.
* Identifying, authenticating, and authorizing entities.
* Development of trust frameworks for secure collaboration.
* New cryptographic primitives for constrained "things".
* Connecting heterogeneous ecosystems and technologies.
* Legal Challenges and Governance Issues.
* Resilience to external and internal attacks.
* Context-Aware Security.
* Providing protection to an IP-connected IoT.
* Web services security and other application-layer issues.

Submission Guidelines:

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously

submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an

undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference

and present the work. All accepted workshop papers will be published in a single workshop proceedings volume.

Papers must be submitted using the workshop web site and following the requirements stated there. All Paper

submissions should be anonymized to facilitate blind review. Submission should be in IEEE 8.5x11 conference

format and should not exceed 8 pages. Submission should be formatted in strict accordance with the IEEE

Computer Society author guidelines:
