WISI 2020

2nd Workshop on Industrial Security and IoT (WISI)

to be held in conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2020 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 25 – August 28, 2020, University College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

The factory of the future requires an effective interconnection of machinery, robots, lines, products, sensors and operators to each other and to back-end systems. The industrial propagation environment may also be harsh, mostly metalized, and suffering from man-made, impulsive interference. Industrial IoT priorities are security, low latency, reliability and low cost. However, smart factories are also looking for enhanced services for people and machines that create an added value that is beyond the limits of the production environment, such as indoor localisation, smart logistic support, remote maintenance and access to machine data and advanced IT infrastructure, smart tracking of connected components and products.

In this workshop we invite papers to discuss security demands of Industry 4.0, as well as specific security tools and methods, which enable interconnection of engineering activities at multiple levels of security and safety, in order to improve system resilience and to support security lifecycle management.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Dependability design methods for IoT
Resilient system architecture pattern and concepts and HW-based solutions for safe & secure IoT
Scalable and efficient crypto algorithm for IoT
Useable security
Strategic Security Assurance
Automated test case generation

Operational Security Assurance
Life-cycle data management for IIoT
Secure Connectivity
Traceability of components and systems throughout life-cycle
Security by Isolation
