Embedded computing systems are continuously adopted in a wide range of
application areas and importantly, they are responsible for a large number
of safety-critical systems as well as for the management of critical information.
The advent of Internet-enabled embedded systems introduces a large number
of security issues: the Internet can be used to attack embedded systems
and embedded systems can be used to attack the Internet. Furthermore,
embedded systems are vulnerable to many attacks not relevant to servers
because they are physically accessible. Inadvertent threats due to bugs,
improper system use, etc. can also have effects that are indistinguishable
from malicious attacks.
This workshop will address the range of problems related to embedded
system security. Of particular interest are security topics that are unique
to embedded systems. The workshop will provide proceedings to the participants
and will encourage discussion and debate about embedded systems security.
Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Security planning and provisioning for embedded systems.
- Security of Internet-enabled embedded systems.
- Power-related attacks and countermeasures.
- Timing-related attacks and countermeasures.
- Novel attacks and countermeasures.
- Security of sensor networks.
- Case studies.
