Information theoretic security has emerged as a promising new approach for achieving secure network communications at various protocol layers. In particular, it holds promise for wireless networks that have little or no infrastructure, possess limited computational resources, and are subject to dynamically changing environments. In recent years, this topic has been studied extensively for wireless networks with a view to providing guidelines for implementing associated techniques in current and future systems.
Information theoretic security has intriguing connections to important areas of research including cryptography, signal processing, networking, and quantum computation. Thus, advancement of information theoretic security will benefit substantially from interaction with researchers from these diverse communities. The Workshop will be a collective forum for researchers and practitioners in network security, from academia as well as industry, which seeks to motivate and explore interdisciplinary collaborations.
The Workshop will consist of invited talks by leading researchers and practitioners, and invited poster presentations by postdoctoral researchers and graduate students, punctuated by adequate time for discussion. Topics will include information theoretic security, secure coding, cryptography, wireless network security, quantum approach to security, and security in practical networks.
General participation in the Workshop is open subject to seating limitations.
