*The First International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Big Data *

*(BigSecurity 2013, conjunct with Globecom 2013) *

* *

*Scope and Topics of Interest*

As we are deep into the Information Age, we also witness the explosive
growth of data available on the Internet. For example, human beings create
about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day in 2012, which come from
sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things,
enterprise and Internet in all scales and formats. We face one of the most
challenging issues, i.e., how to effectively manage such a large amount of
data and identify new ways to analyze large amounts of data and unlock
information. The issue is also known as Big Data, which has been emerging
as a hot topic in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) research.

Security and privacy issue is critical for Big Data. Many works have been
carried out focusing on business, application and information processing
level from big data, such as data mining and analysis.  However, security
and privacy issues in Big Data are seldom mentioned to date. Due to its
extraordinary scale, security and privacy in Big Data faces many
challenges, such as efficient encryption and decryption algorithms,
encrypted information retrieval, attribute based encryption, attacks on
availability, reliability and integrity of Big Data.

The purpose of this workshop is to offer a timely venue for researchers and
industry partners to present and discuss their latest results in security
and privacy related work of Big Data.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

         Threat and Vulnerability Analysis in Big Data

         Architecture for Security and Privacy in Big Data

         Encrypted Information Retrieval in Big Data

         Cryptanalysis and Applications in Big Data

         Lightweight Cryptographic Algorithms in Big Data

         Trust in Big Data

         Network Security, Privacy in Big Data

         Network Forensics in Big Data

         Anonymous Communication in Big Data

         Physical Layer Security in Big Data

         Privacy and Security in Cloud Data

         Privacy and Security in Data Center Networks

         Application Level Security and Privacy in Big Data

         Attacks and Counter Measures in Big Data

         Information Forensics in Big Data

         Secure Cross-layer Design in Big Data

         Identity Management and Key Management in Big Data

         Intrusion Detection and Response in Big Data

         Security and Privacy in Complex Networks

         Malware and Virus Detection in Big Data

         Biometric Security and Forensics in Big Data

         Reliability and Availability in Big Data

         Network Security in Big Data

         Network Privacy in Big Data

         Security and Privacy Theories in Big Data
