International Workshop on Trustworthy Wireless Industrial Sensor Networks (TWISNet 2013)

To be held on September 5, 2013 in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2013 – http://www.ares-conference.eu).

September 2nd – 6th, 2013
University of Regensburg
Regensburg, Germany

The deployment of sensor networks in industrial environments has attracted much attention in several business domains. An increasing number of applications have been developed, ranging from defense, public security, energy management, traffic control to health care. Sensor networks are particularly interesting due to their ability to control and monitor physical environments.

Wireless Sensor Networks provide applications in monitoring and controlling of industrial processes, workers, environmental phenomena, and many more. Because sensors typically communicate over the air, there is always a danger that information can be accessed and modified by unauthorized parties. Several technical (e.g. remote management, deployment) and security (e.g. user’s privacy, data confidentiality and reliability) challenges deter their integration in industrial processes.

Within the EU FP7 project TWISNet (Trustworthy Wireless Industrial Sensor Networks) security issues when applying wireless sensor networks to industrial environments have been addressed. A modular and adaptive security architecture able to address the security concerns raised by the deployment of wireless sensor networks into industrial environments has been developed.

This workshop aims on presenting and discussing the results of the research and development that has been done on WSN security in TWISNet. The focus of the workshop lies on the concrete application of the designed security framework to IPv6 sensor environments, where certain scenarios and threat models are investigated to define requirements on a secure wireless sensor network for industrial application.

Topics of interest comprise:

  • Trustworthiness in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
  • Limitations and Chances of WSNs regarding Security
  • Scenarios and Threat Models for WSN Environments
  • 6LoWPAN enabled WSN Security
  • Automatic Configuration and Reconfiguration
  • Identity Management, Authentication and Access Control
  • Shared Information and Resources
  • Availability for Communications, Information and Services
  • Adaptive Security
  • Secure and Trusted Mediation Layer for enablement of Business applications
  • Application of the Security Framework to specific Sensor Hardware
