Call for papers. The 4th Workshop on Internet of Things Security and Privacy (WISP)

The 4th Workshop on Internet of Things Security and Privacy (WISP) (in conjunction with Global IoT Summit 2022 and the IoT Week 2022

The enforcement of security and privacy notions are widely considered as the main barriers for the design and development of IoT-enabled scenarios. With the massive deployment of wireless communication technologies and the integration of IA techniques, IoT devices are becoming more autonomous and pervasive in our surrounding environment.

On top, the already increasing number and heterogeneity of IoT devices is further increasing needs on a harmonized security and privacy layer.

This aspect will be reinforced with the integration of 5G technologies to realize a data-driven society. In this context, current digital and physical infrastructures will be the target of potential attackers, in order to get access to the information provided by such devices. This trend toward hyperconnectivity also means an increase of security and privacy risks, since IoT systems will often operate on behalf of their owners by disclosing potentially sensitive data.. These concerns must be tackled by joint efforts involving manufacturers, regulatory bodies, policy makers and end users to increase trust in the future digital society. For that reason, there is a need to develop joint strategies addressing the identification and mitigation of security and privacy risks to promote the deployment of IoT systems on a broad scale.
