Workshop on Industrial Internet of Things Security (WIIoTS)

Bilbao, Spain, June 4-7, 2018 (in conjunction with Global IoT Summit 


Submission due:  Feb 28, 2018 (GMT)

Conference Outline:

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an emerging paradigm in 
today’s (control) industry, comprising Internet-enabled cyber-physical 
devices with the ability to couple to the new interconnection 
technologies such as cloud/fog computing. Under this perspective, the 
new industrial cyber-physical “things” can be accessible and 
available from remote locations, the information of which can be 
processed and stored in distributed locations, favouring the 
cooperation, the performance in field, and the achievement of 
operational tasks working at optimal times. However, the incorporation 
of the IIoT in the new scenarios of the fourth industrial revolution, 
also known as Industry 4.0, entails having to consider the new security 
and privacy issues that can threaten the wellbeing of the new IIoT 
ecosystem and its coexistence with the existing industrial technologies, 
with a high risk of impact on the end-users.

Therefore, this workshop will create a collaboration platform for 
experts from academia, governments and industry to address the new IIoT 
security and privacy challenges. Papers related to security and privacy 
of embedded systems working in industrial and control environments, such 
as SCADA, smart grid, smart cities, manufacturing systems, water 
systems, and in critical infrastructures in general, are all welcome at 
WIIoTS 2018. The technical topics of interest for this workshop include, 
but are not limited to:

• Interoperable IIoT ecosystem-level security and privacy challenges
• IIoT governance, regulation and standards
• Cross-layer threat modelling in IIoT and risk assessment
• Lightweight cryptography and key management
• Lightweight IIoT security protocols and AAA services for IIoT
• Collaborative and trustworthy IIoT frameworks and architectures
• Privacy-preserving models and anonymization techniques for IIoT
• Secure IIoT data storage and Big Data
• Location privacy and trust management
• Intrusion detection, anomaly diagnosis and situational awareness for 
• Response and resilience to IIoT cyber-attacks
• Incident management and IIoT forensics
• Case studies and practical validations: SCADA, energy, water, smart 
factory, etc.
