International Workshop on Security and Forensics of IoT (IoT-SECFOR)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Internet-of-Things (IoT) are becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, as the backbone of interconnected smart homes, smart hospitals, smart cities, smart wearables and other smart environments. IoT leverage embedded technologies equipped with sensors and communication capabilities; they are able to broadcast their presence to other objects and interact with them using different protocols. Gartner predicts that, by 2020, 21 billion IoT endpoints will be in use. Along with usability, efficiency, and cost savings benefits, increasingly, the use of IoT pose security risks and raise challenges to digital forensics. The massive DDoS caused by the Mirai botnet which exploited IoT devices is a recent example.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from both communities – security and forensics – to discuss problems and solutions regarding IoT.
