Welcome to MobiSec 2009

Mole Antonelliana

The First International ICST Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems

June 3-5, 2009 - Turin, Italy

Sponsored by ICST
Technically-sponsored by Create-Net


The convergence of information and communication technology is most palpable in the form of intelligent mobile devices, accompanied by the advent of converged, and next-generation, communication networks. As mobile communication and information processing becomes a commodity, economy and society require protection of this precious resource. MobiSec brings together leading-edge researchers from academia and industry in the field of mobile systems security and privacy, as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers.


Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another conference or journal, are solicited. MobiSec solicits original, high-quality research contributions in the form of full papers. The focus is on the security of information and communication systems including mobile networks, devices and applications. Papers from other areas, e.g., formal methods, cryptography, database security, operating system security, will be considered if a clear connection to one of the topics below is demonstrated.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following focus areas, as applied to mobile ICT:

  • Security architectures for next-generation, new-generation, and converged communication networks
  • Trusted mobile devices, hardware security
  • Network resilience
  • Threat analyses for mobile systems
  • Multi-hop authentication and trust
  • Non-repudiation of communication
  • Context-aware and data-centric security
  • Protection and safety of distributed mobile data
  • Mobile application security
  • Security for voice and multimedia communication
  • Machine-to-machine communication security
  • Trust in autonomic and opportunistic communication
  • Location based applications security and privacy
  • Security for the networked home environment
  • Security and privacy for mobile communities
  • Mobile emergency communication, public safety
  • Lawful interception and mandatory data retention
  • Security of mobile agents and code
  • Idenity management
  • Embedded security


LNICST Accepted papers will be published by Springer in the MobiSec Conference Proceedings, and published by Springer in the Lecture Notes of the Institute for ComputerSciences, Social-Informatics and Tele-communications Engineering (LNICST) series. The content of the proceedings will be reviewed by various indexing services such as the DBLP database, ZBlMath/CompuServe, MATHSCINET, EI-INSPEC, IET, RPS, Computer Science Bibliography Administrator, Elsevier Bibliographic Databases Source Management, ULRICH, CSA, ProQuest.

SCN IJMCMC Selected high-quality papers will be invited to Special Issues in the Journals Security and Communication Networks (SCN) (Wiley). and the International Journal of Mobile Computing and Multimedia Communications (IJMCMC) (IGI Global).


Andrei Gurtov, Adjunct Professor, Helsinki Institute for Information Technology (HIIT) Finland, will present a half-day tutorial at MobiSec on the Host Identification Protocol (HIP).


The MobiSec 2009 Workshop Chairs and the MobiSec Organizing Committee invite proposals for workshops to be held with the First Annual International Conference on Security and Privacy in Mobile Information and Communication Systems (MobiSec).
