                               CALL FOR PAPERS
         The International Workshop on Secure Smart Objects
            co-located with IEEE iThings/CPSCom/GreenCom 2013
                           August 19-22, 2013
                           Beijing, China
             SUBMISSION DEADLINE : April 28, 2013

 With the emergence of new information and communication technologies, 
 smart objects combined with communication infrastructures such as 
 Internet and mobile networks enable accessing to things anywhere 
 anytime, and collecting data secretly. To avoid emergence of a Big 
 Brother world, stringent control on the applications involving this kind 
 of objects is highly required with the need for objects to support 
 security functions. The challenging issue is that smart objects are 
 extremely constrained in terms of energy, computational power and 
 memory, so support of strong security is made arduous.
 Smart cards, crypto-keys, mobile telephony, RFID and NFC, TPM or TEE are 
 examples of these devices where complex hardware and software are 
 designed to solve major constraints of security, safety, reliability, 
 efficiency, quality of service, and price. Many applications with high 
 social and business impact are part of IoT/SSO domain, including 
 personal healthcare, intelligent transportation, home automation, mobile 
 payment, e-passport, surveillance, etc. The most important challenges are:
 i) the definition of architectures, protocols and algorithms to secure 
 smart objects and their connection to the information system on the 
 and ii) the creation of platforms and services that are open, secure, 
 and interoperable to interconnect things/smart objects.
 The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and 
 researchers from both academia  and industry in order to have a forum 
 for discussion and technical presentations on the recent
 advances in theory, application and implementation of the SSO concept: 
 technologies, protocols,algorithms, applications and services, 
 standardisation initiatives, user experience.
 Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 - RF & hardware for the IoT/SSO
 - System architectures for the IoT/SSO
 - Communication protocols for the IoT/SSO
 - Security and Testing for the IoT/SSO
 - New applications, services and their deployment for the IoT/SSO
 - Mobility management for the IoT/SSO
 - Experimental prototypes for the IoT/SSO
 - Performance evaluation for the IoT/SSO
