Overview/Scope:
---------------

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 objects 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, mainly due to the inherent heterogeneity
of this vision and its broad scope, there will not be a single silver bullet
security solution that will fulfill all the security requirements of the IoT.
Therefore: How we can include security as a core element of the IoT? How the
IoT will interact with other security mechanisms of the Future Internet?
What security requirements will be truly challenged by the ultimate vision of
the IoT?

It is precisely the goal of this workshop to bring together researchers and
industry experts in areas relevant to the security of the Internet of Things
to discuss these and other significant issues. Moreover, this workshop also
has the objective to serve as a forum for not only presenting cutting-edge
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.
* Distributed policy enforcement and rights management.
* Usability of Security and Privacy Technologies in the context of the IoT.

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.

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. Submissions must not exceed 10 single-spaced,
double-column pages using 10 pt size fonts on 8.5 x 11 inch pages in IEEE
style format. Only PDF or Postscript files will be accepted. Submissions
not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of
their merits.

All papers included in the iThings 2011 workshops will be published by
IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected best papers from iThings 2011
workshops will be recommended for publication in special issues of
several SCI-indexed international journals.
