Call for Papers

RFIDSec 2014 will run from July 21 to July 23, 2014. It will be co-located with WiSec 2014. RFIDsec is the premier workshop devoted to security and privacy in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) with participants throughout the world. RFIDsec brings together researchers from academia and industry for topics of importance to improving the security and privacy of RFID, NFC, contactless technologies, and the Internet of Things. RFIDsec bridges the gap between cryptographic researchers and RFID developers through invited talks and contributed presentations.

Topics of the conference include:

  • New applications for secure RFID, NFC and other constrained systems
  • Resource-efficient implementations of cryptography
  • Attacks on RFID systems (e.g. side-channel attacks, fault attacks, hardware tampering)
  • Data protection and privacy-enhancing techniques
  • Cryptographic protocols (e.g. authentication, key distribution, scalability issues)
  • Integration of secure RFID systems (e.g. infrastructures, middleware and security)
  • Data mining and other systemic approaches to RFID security
  • RFID hardware security (e.g. Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) , RFID Trojans)
  • Case studies

Authors are invited to submit papers (PDF or PS format) with novel contributions. Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to other conferences/workshops that have proceedings or journals. The submissions must be written in English, and must be at most 15 pages in LNCS format (template available here), excluding references and appendices, and maximum of 18 pages, i.e., up to 3 pages of references/appendices. Papers not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration. All submissions will be blind-refereed. Submission implies willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.
