ACM WiSec 2009

Call for Papers (PDF)

As wireless networks become ubiquitous, their security gains in importance. The ACM Conference on Wireless Network Security (WiSec) aims at exploring attacks on wireless networks as well as techniques to thwart them. The considered networks encompass cellular, metropolitan, local area, vehicular, ad hoc, satellite, underwater, cognitive radio, and sensor networks as well as RFID.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Naming and addressing vulnerabilities
  • Key management in wireless/mobile environments
  • Secure neighbor discovery / Secure localization
  • Secure PHY and MAC protocols
  • Trust establishment
  • Intrusion detection, detection of malicious behavior
  • Revocation of malicious parties
  • Denial of service
  • User privacy, location privacy
  • Anonymity, prevention of traffic analysis
  • Identity theft and phishing in mobile networks
  • Charging
  • Cooperation and prevention of non-cooperative behavior
  • Economics of wireless security
  • Vulnerability and attack modeling
  • Incentive-aware secure protocol design
  • Jamming/Anti-jamming communication
  • Cross-layer design for security
  • Monitoring and surveillance
  • Cryptographic primitives for wireless communication
  • Formal methods for wireless security
  • Mobile platform and systems (OS and application) security

ACM WiSec results from the merger of three workshops: ESAS (European Workshop on the Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks), SASN (ACM Workshop on the Security of Ad Hoc and Sensor Networks) and WiSe (ACM Workshop on Wireless Security). The proceedings will be published by the ACM.
