Welcome To The 1st Workshop on Secure IoT, Edge and Cloud systems (SIoTEC) 2020

It's Nice To Meet You

MAY 11 - 14, 2020. Melbourne, Australia.


The Cloud/Edge paradigm fosters the deployment of digital services over multiple physical (both private and public) infrastructures even across different administrative boundaries. In its turn, the IoT advent has determined the proliferation of smart devices connected to the Internet and injecting into it a vast amount of data that may traverse several network boundaries and undergo many computational stages before they get consumed. If, on the one hand, the benefits brought by these technologies are well known, it is clear as well that, in the envisaged scenario, the exposure of data, services and infrastructures to malicious attacks has definitely grown. Even a single breach on any of the links of the data-service-infrastructure chain may seriously compromise the security of the end-user application. With such a wide attack surface, security must definitely approached in a holistic way and addressed in any layer where concerns may potentially arise. The workshop solicits novel and innovative ideas, proposals, positions and best practices that address the modelling, design, implementation, and enforcement of the security in Cloud/Edge/IoT environments.
