6TH IEEE/IFIP Workshop on Security for Emerging Distributed Network
Technologies (DISSECT)
Co-located with IEEE/IFIP NOMS 2020. Budapest, Hungary
The computer networking landscape is subject to a multitude of changes
that occur very rapidly. First, paradigm shifts such as fog computing,
mobile edge computing, Blockchain, Named Data Networking (NDN) and
emerging open networking technologies such as Software-Defined
Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and
Programmable Networks are reshaping the way networks are designed,
deployed, and managed. The benefits are manifold, including an
unprecedented flexibility for network operation and management, and a
favorable environment for delivering innovative network applications
and services. However, those paradigm shifts bring a multitude of
security challenges that have to be addressed in order to provide
secure, trustworthy, and privacy-preserving data communication and
network services. Second, large scale and distributed deployment of
mobile communications, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Intelligent Transport
Systems, smart grids or industrial systems has become real but also
emphasizes particular privacy and security issues to be overcome,
especially when interconnected with Internet.

Addressing all these challenges may require not only revisiting
existing solutions (e.g., for intrusion detection, privacy preserving,
and resilience against attacks), but also designing novel security and
resilience schemes tailored to the specific design of open networking
technologies and infrastructures. New types of attacks and threats
also appear against usual services over Internet such as DNS or
routing. DISSECT 2020 follows the track of its four previous editions,
and will put focus on security issues and challenges arising with the
emergence of novel networking technologies and paradigms but also on
new threats emerging against former services and technologies, towards
a secure cognitive management in a cyber-world. The workshop will shed
light on new challenges and present state-of-the-art research on the
various security aspects of next-generation networking technologies
and service management frameworks.
DISSECT will offer a venue for bringing together students,
researchers, and professionals from academia and industry sharing
common interest on security challenges related to the design and
management of the distributed networks and infrastructures. DISSECT is
intended to (1) discussing these challenges as well as future trends
on security management, (2) presenting and discussing work-in-progress
security-related research on cutting-edge technologies, and (3)
strengthening collaboration and research ties among peers.

Topics of Interest
The research community will be invited to contribute with manuscripts
describing novel, work-in-progress research on the design of solutions
to relevant security issues on a wide variety of next generation
networking technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following

Secure and resilient design and deployment of open networking  technologies
Privacy-preserving solutions
