Workshop description: 

LSPEN workshop aims to promote and initiate novel research on security & cryptography issues for emerging networks that suffer from different performance and security constraints in terms of power, computing, and memory resources in addition to real-time imposed constraints (e.g., low latency). Emerging networks and systems are becoming ubiquitous; examples include but are not limited to the Internet of Everything (IoE) such as the Internet of Drones, Internet of Robotics, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), 5G, cyber-physical systems, and smart grids. Their increasing and widespread use in different human life aspects led to a plethora of security and privacy-related issues. However, the cost of the traditional security solutions that can handle these issues is relatively high. Therefore, defining new lightweight security and privacy solutions for these emerging networks becomes more than mandatory. Furthermore, lightweight countermeasures against physical attacks become increasingly fundamental, especially to deal with these constrained devices that can be deployed in public spaces or private lives. LSPEN is a workshop organized in conjunction with IEEE IWCMC 2022 in the area of lightweight security, privacy, digital forensics, and ethical hacking that addresses the challenge of designing secure and robust lightweight solutions for constrained emerging networks while preserving high-performance and scalability. The goal of LSPEN is to attract security researchers, industry practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange ideas, techniques, and tools, and share experiences related to all practical and theoretical aspects of network security and privacy. Moreover, this workshop aims to create a framework to address these concerns and to discuss and evaluate the recently proposed lightweight security solutions. Thus, the objective of this workshop is to solicit papers that investigate lightweight security, privacy, digital forensics, and ethical hacking solutions using state-of-the-art security techniques. Papers regarding the modeling, design, implementation, deployment, and testing of the listed solutions, are welcome. 


Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE IWCMC 2022 proceedings and will be submitted to the IEEE digital library (IEEE Xplore). Authors are welcome to submit papers with topics that include, but are not limited to: 

· Security & privacy solutions for emerging networks
