In the past decade, computer networks have fundamentally influenced the ways in which information is exchanged and handled. Pervasive electronic devices make our everyday life easier, e.g., by helping us to connect with other people while mobile, to use services available online, or to pay and use tolls and tickets. Many of the components employed routinely manage and distribute large amounts of data for different purposes. As these processes involve sensitive information, protecting information and the network with suitable security measures is more important than ever.
The objective of this one-day conference is to bring together researchers in the field of network security to discuss the open problems and future research directions. To this end, we solicit papers describing interesting unsolved problems and issues in (a certain area of) network and infrastructure security.
This year, iNetSec takes place in Luzern, Switzerland, and is co-located with the IFIP SEC 2011 conference and the final events of the EU-funded projects PrimeLife and PICOS. The latter are two research projects on privacy and identity management and each will present their results and discuss the remaining challenges.
