2nd Workshop on the Internet of Things Security and Privacy

Aim and scope

The Internet of Things (IoT) is believed to be the next generation of the Internet and has deeply influenced our daily lives (e.g., smart homes, smart cities, smart wearables, and other smart environments). While bringing convenience to our lives, IoT also introduces potential security hazards. Since increasing IoT devices directly process user-generated data, once compromised, leave users or even the entire smart society at risk. Furthermore, large-scale data generated by IoT devices also gives opportunities to attackers. For instance, ever since the first Mirai attacks took place in 2016, IoT botnets have taken over more powerful DDoS attacks recently.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from academia, government, and industry to discuss the challenge and solutions regarding practical and theoretical aspects of IoT security and privacy. We hope that this workshop will be the main conference for IoT security of ACM CCS community.

Call for papers

IoT S&P 2019 welcomes original and innovative research on IoT Security and Privacy from the academia, industry and government. Topics of interest comprise, but are not limited to:

  • Privacy and trust in IoT

  • Cryptography protocols and algorithms for IoT

  • Data confidentiality, integrity and availability analysis for IoT

  • Identity and access management in IoT

  • Intrusion and anomaly detection in IoT

  • Secure operating systems in IoT

  • Models for risk identification and assessment in IoT networks

  • Security architecture for the IoT application

  • Sensor and actuator attacks

  • IoT denial-of-service attacks and countermeasures

  • IoT malware analysis

  • Security analysis on IoT firmware

  • Security analysis on IoT platform

  • Vulnerabilities analysis tools for IoT

  • Automated exploiting method for IoT vulnerabilities

  • Hardware-assisted IoT security

  • IoT attacks with novel insights, techniques, or results

  • IoT ecosystem-level security analysis

  • Other related areas

Paper submissions

Submitted papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.

Submissions are sought in the following categories:
(i) short papers (
6 pages ACM double-column format excluding references and appendices), and
(ii) posters (
2 pages).

Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of (TBD according to the CCS 2019 schedule) to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by (TBD according to the CCS 2019 schedule). Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that one of the authors will register and present the paper at the workshop. Proceedings of the workshop will be available on a CD to the workshop attendees and will become part of the ACM Digital Library.
