SSR conference, 7-8 Nov 2019, London, UK

Security Standardisation Research Conference 2019

The 5th Conference on Security Standards Research will be held in London, UK, 7-8 Nov 2019. The purpose of this conference is to discuss the many research problems deriving from studies of existing standards, the development of revisions to existing standards, and the exploration of completely new areas of standardisation. Indeed, many security standards bodies are only beginning to address the issue of transparency, so that the process of selecting security techniques for standardisation can be seen to be as scientific and unbiased as possible.

This year, we would also like to encourage active law researchers in data protection and privacy to submit to the conference. This aligns with the presence of the GDPR in the EU. Submissions about regulation-related aspects of blockchain technology and the IoT are particularly welcomed. We would also love to see more standardisation efforts being open to interaction with academics. This follows in the footsteps of IETF’s design approach for TLS 1.3, which has seen substantial academic input. Similarly, several post-quantum efforts have seen interaction between academia and industry.

This conference is intended to cover the full spectrum of research on security standardisation, including, but not restricted to, work on cryptographic techniques (including ANSI, IEEE, IETF, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27, ITU-T and NIST), security management, security evaluation criteria, security policy, network security, privacy and identity management, smart cards and RFID tags, biometrics, security modules, and industry-specific security standards (e.g. those produced by the payments, telecommunications and computing industries for such things as payment protocols, mobile telephony and trusted computing).

Please note that Security Standardisation Conference 2019 is co-located with ACM CCS this year. They will both be in London, UK. SSR will be held the week before CCS to give the authors and attendees who are travelling from overseas to attend both conferences.
