SETOP 2012

Pisa, Italy, September 13-14


Scope: Security and reliability have become a major concern for service-oriented applications as well as for communications systems and networks. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers addressing the automated configuration of security policies in the context of dynamic, heterogeneous and mobile environments. Aiming at secure and interoperable networks and systems, major challenges related to policy conflict detection and resolution must be addressed. Papers related to autonomous assessment and intrusion mitigation are particularly invited for submission.

The workshop is structured in two tracks: a research track and an industrial track.


The SETOP Workshop seeks submissions that present research results on all aspects related to spontaneous and autonomous security. Submissions by PhD students are encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Security policy deployment
  • Self evaluation of risk and impact
  • Distributed intrusion detection
  • Autonomous and spontaneous response
  • Trust establishment & lightweight cryptography
  • Selfish behavior and collaboration enforcement
  • Security in autonomous ad hoc networks
  • Security in sensor & RFID networks
  • Security of Next Generation Networks
  • Security in Cloud Computing
  • Security of Service Oriented Architectures
  • Security of opportunistic networks
  • Privacy in self-organized networks
  • Secure localization & context aware ubiquitous computing
  • Secure interoperability and negotiation
  • Self-organization in secure routing
  • Identity management, modeling and validation of security
