WISP was founded with the goal of drawing in and showcasing the most recent findings in security and privacy research on IoT and continuous computing. The best papers will be chosen through a rigorous peer review procedure. In order to promote a deeper knowledge of how to shape the future of the Internet, WISP encourages submissions from researchers, developers, and practitioners working at the intersection of intelligent connected devices and security and privacy problems. The workshop underscores the crucial function of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) in mitigating privacy hazards associated with Internet of Things (IoT) systems and instigating an exhaustive exploration of plausible remedies for a secure and privacy-aware IoT ecosystem in the times ahead.
WISP is a one-of-a-kind event that will include panel discussions, scientific paper presentations, keynote addresses, and themed workshops. In addition to organizing a panel discussion with stakeholders to analyze the demands and expectations of the industry, WISP will accept scholarly papers in response to a call for papers. Furthermore, we are inviting position papers from the community and industry to be presented in a pitch format during a unique session (not related to publications).
Scope of Workshop
The primary obstacles to the design and development of IoT-enabled scenarios are generally acknowledged to be the enforcement of security and privacy concepts. As wireless communication technologies are widely used and IA techniques are integrated, the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming more and more autonomous in our surroundings. Further driving the need for a standardized security and privacy layer, including the inclusion of privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs), is the rapidly growing number and heterogeneity of IoT devices. The incorporation of 5G technologies will strengthen this element in order to achieve a society that is driven by data. In this scenario, potential attackers will target present physical and digital infrastructures in an attempt to gain access to the data these devices supply. The rise in security and privacy threats that comes with this hyperconnectivity trend is a result of IoT systems that frequently act as their owners' agents by releasing potentially sensitive data. To boost confidence in the next digital society, producers, regulators, legislators, and end users must work together to address these issues. To encourage the widespread use of cutting-edge connected devices and related systems, it is necessary to create collaborative methods that address the detection and mitigation of security and privacy issues.
About Workshop Committee
Experts from various EU projects focusing on cross-layer issues related to user-centric security, privacy, and trust in connected devices and its interactions with the continuum computing paradigm are to be brought together for this workshop.
This workshop is made possible by EU initiatives:
ERATOSTHENES, CERTIFY, CROSSCON, COBALT, ENCRYPT, REWIRE, DOSS, ENTRUST, TRUSTEE
Furthermore, a day will be devoted to the Cybercamp-USAL initiative, namely a conference with industry experts where profiles with cybersecurity concerns will be brought closer to the realities of cybersecurity through discussions and workshops.
