Proposal topics

Regarding the schedule it won't be a classical split between days dedicated to workshops or talks. We will instead have half a day dedicated to either attack or defense workshops and the second half to talks on the opposite subject. This will allow attendees to better follow specific topics.

We expect an event offering a wide range of topics ranging from software security to cyber security, data protection, legal, technical and organizational aspects of software, hardware, networks, infrastructures, systems, and others. Topics could be:

  • Secure applications, design, and implementation;
  • Applications security (software, Web apps, Web services, mobile apps, etc.);
  • Network security (protocols, attacks, firewalls, appliances, etc.);
  • Intrusion detection and monitoring (IDS, security operation centers, etc.);
  • Security governance;
  • Cryptography;
  • Risks and threats analysis;
  • Identity management, authentication mechanisms, and identity federation;
  • Specific topics such as: e-voting, e-health, e-banking, e-commerce, and wider domains such as defense, finance, industry, services, and human resources;
  • Cloud computing, distributed systems, critical systems (SCADA), and social networks;
  • Legislation, regulations, standards;
  • Cybercrime, organized crime.
