Hi list,

Please see below the call for papers for Security Standardization Research
2017, which I'm posting with the chairs' encouragement. This conference has
proved to be a great venue for practitioners working on security for
different standards to come together and exchange knowledge, and we'd love
to get submissions from CFRG participants. Thanks!



                              Call for Papers

  SSR 2017: 4th International conference on Security Standardisation
          18th-19th December 2017, Royal Holloway, Egham, Surrey, UK

SSR covers the full spectrum of research on security standardisation,
including, but not restricted to, work on cryptographic techniques
ANSI, IEEE, IETF, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27, ITU-T and NIST), security management,
security evaluation criteria, network security, privacy and identity
management, smart cards and RFID tags, biometrics, security modules, and
industry-specific security standards (e.g. those produced by the payments,
telecommunications and computing industries for such things as payment
protocols, mobile telephony and trusted computing).

SSR will also accept Systematization of Knowledge (SoK) papers relating to
security standardisation, which integrate experience and previous research,
drawing new comprehensive conclusions. SoK papers should evaluate,
and contextualize existing knowledge. They should provide a new viewpoint,
offer a comprehensive taxonomy, or cast doubt on long-held beliefs, based on
compelling evidence.

A wide range of standards now cover many of aspects of cyber security. These
documents have been published by national and international formal
standardisation bodies, as well as by industry consortia. Many of these
standards have become very widely used - to take just one example, the
27000 series has become the internationally adopted basis for managing
corporate information security.

Still, new security standards are proposed very frequently, and existing
security standards need revision often. Security standards are one of the
active areas for many standards bodies. There is currently intense
attention on
the methods for ensuring security within standardisation.

SSR is a forum for identifying the conclusions from this process, and
improvements to achieve transparency, more unbiased results, and higher
scientific quality.

Papers offering research contributions to all aspects of security
standardisation are solicited for submission to the SSR 2017 conference.
may present theory, applications or practical experience in the field of
security standardisation, including, but not necessarily limited to:
* access control
* biometrics
* cloud computing
* critical national infrastructure (CNI) protection
* critiques of standards
* cryptanalysis
* cryptographic protocols
* cryptographic techniques
* evaluation criteria
* formal analysis of standards
* identity management
* industrial control systems security
* internet security
* intrusion detection
* key management and PKIs
* mobile security
* network security
* payment system security
* privacy
* RFID tag security
* risk analysis
* security controls
* security management
* security protocols
* security services
* security tokens
* smart cards
* telecommunications security
* trusted computing
* web security

Submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another
conference or journal for consideration for publication. Papers must be
in English. Each submitted paper should begin with a title, a short
and a list of keywords. Papers should be at most 16 pages (excluding
bibliography and appendices) in the standard LNCS format (see
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-0-0-0 for details).
are not obliged to read appendices, so the paper must be self-contained

Papers that do not adhere to these requirements will be rejected without
consideration of their merits.

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair conference management system

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and published in the
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series
(www.springer.com/lncs). At least one author of each accepted paper must
register for the conference.

Instructions for the preparation of a final proceedings version will be
sent to
the authors of accepted papers.

Papers must be submitted using the EasyChair conference management system
Please send any enquiries to:
