                                Call for papers

Opportunistic Networks are considered as an evolution of the Mobile
Ad-hoc Networking paradigm, in which the assumption of an existing
end-to-end connectivity is relaxed. The evolving topologies are expected
to resemble the actual social networks of the communicating users and
information on their characteristics can be a powerful aid for any
network operation. Online services that assist social networks (facebook,
linkedin, xing, etc.) in consequence are able to provide additional
information on contacts and their relations. The lack of end-to-end
connectivity and the use of personal information for the networking
operations raise entirely new privacy concerns and require new reflections
on security problems.

The aim of this workshop is to encompass research advances in all areas of
security, trust and privacy in Opportunistic and Social Networks.

Topics of Interest

- new aspects of trust
- privacy concerns
- availability and resilience
- community based secure communication
- data confidentiality, data integrity
- anonymity, pseudonymity
- key management
- secure bootstrapping
- security issues in forwarding, routing
- security aspects regarding cooperation
- reputation systems for opportunistic/social networks
- new security issues, new attack paradigms
- new requirements for software security
- malware analysis in opportunistic/social networks
