IoT/CPS-Security 2015

The First IEEE International Workshop on

Security and Privacy for Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems

Organized in conjunction with

IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC 2015)

8-12 June 2015, London, UK


Recent advances in networking, communications, computation, software, and hardware technologies have revolutionized the way humans, smart things, and engineered systems interact and exchange information. The Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), which are the major contributors to this area, will fuel the realization of this new, globally interconnected cyber-world. Yet, the success, prosperity, and advancement of IoT and CPS systems strongly depend on the security, privacy and trust of the IoT and cyber-physical devices as well as the sensitive data being exchanged. While these technologies offer a lot of new possibilities, the increasing complexity of hardware and software as well as the worldwide access increase the vulnerability to security attacks. Successful attacks targeted to IoT devices and CPS systems have in common that not only a single computer is affected, but also interconnected technical systems allowing interaction with the physical world are influenced leading to malfunction of devices and control systems with severe financial, environmental and health losses. This fact highlights the need to develop novel tools that will constitute the heart of a much-needed science of security for IoT and CPS. The goal of the 2015 IoT/CPS-Security workshop is to bring together internationally leading academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results aimed at addressing all aspects of security and privacy for IoT and CPS.


To ensure complete coverage of the advances in this field, the 2015 IoT/CPS-Security workshop solicits original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topical areas:

  • Security, Privacy and Trust for IoT and CPS Systems
  • Secure IoT and CPS architectures
  • Security vulnerabilities in IoT and CPS systems
  • Security in Machine-to-Machine (M2M) systems
  • Detecting and preventing attacks in IoT devices and CPS systems
  • Evaluation of the Threats, Attacks and Risks in IoT and cyber-physical devices
  • Data Security and Privacy in the IoT
  • Game theory for IoT and CPS security
  • Security and Privacy in IoT applications and services (health care, smart cities, smart grid, safety and surveillance systems, etc.)
  • Security and Privacy for RFID, sensors, actuator technologies
  • Security in Smart Grids and Smart Spaces
  • Network-distributed signal processing for security solutions in CPS
  • Joint security and privacy aware protocol design
  • Test-bed and performance metrics of security solutions in CPS
  • Deployment and performance studies of secure CPS
  • Secure network control systems for CPS applications
  • Secure implementation of cyber-physical systems
  • Architectures for secure hardware/software CPS systems


The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers. Papers should be written in English with a standard length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with extra charge if accepted). You may use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found here. For more information, please visit the following URL:
