This is one of the first times we’ve heard the term: Mal-IoT (Malicious Software and Hardware in Internet of Things). If IoT is your thing and you’re living and working in Catania, Italy – or indeed in Southern Europe (Malta too!) then this would be an excellent conference to attend. Good luck to the organizers and please drop a review if you attend this event.
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Sunday, February 23rd 2020, or created by us.
Smart and Cyber-physical embedded systems, which are already highly networked, will be even more connected in the near future to form the Internet of Things, handling huge amounts of safety and private critical data. The pervasive diffusion of these devices will create several threats to privacy and could open new possibilities for attackers since the security of even big portions of the Internet of Things could be harmed by compromising a reduced number of components. The possibility of securely updating devices should be ensured and it should be possible to verify and assert the root of the trust of components. With respect to this context, contributions in various areas of security in the Internet of Things are expected.
Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
- Malicious firmware design and detection
- Malware in the Internet of Things applications
- Hardware root of trust
- Privacy issues of smart-home systems and complex systems
- Hardware Trojans and their effects on systems
- Hardware authentication and IP protection
- Secure communication and key-management
- Implementation attacks and countermeasures
- Emerging threats and attack vectors in the Internet of Things
- Supply chain security
