Revolution in digital information has evolved drastically and it has far broader applications and implications than we can imagine. Electronic infrastructure serves as the communication backbone of this. Cyber security in today’s world encompasses everything that pertains to providing security in IT infrastructure and ecosystem, software and computer networks, communications, cryptography and various other disciplines. From critical infrastructure of a state to the health monitoring of an individual with an IoT device, the dependence on digitalization and its cyber security in both the public and private domains is on rise. This reliance demands reliability and security of cyberspace and information flow. Moreover, cyberspace attacks show a direct threat to banking institutions, energy infrastructure, state agencies and even social affairs. Therefore, security and reliability have become vital.

The aim of the track is to bring together researchers working in different aspects of cyber security to make meaningful progress in this body of knowledge and solve real-world security related problems. Particular focus is given to the research areas involving latest topics & emerging cyber security concepts, techniques, technologies and trends like Internet of Things(IoT), Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) applications in Cyber Security, Software Defined Networks, Blockchain and CryptoCurrency, etc.

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

  • Emerging Cyber Security Trends: Threats and Countermeasures
  • Hardware and Software Security
  • System and Network Security
  • Security, Privacy and Risk Management
  • Supply Chain Security
  • Virtualization Security
  • Security of Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Security of Industrial Control System (ICSs)
  • Anonymity and Identity Management
  • Digital Forensics
  • Data Loss Prevention Techniques
  • Malware and Malicious Code Analysis
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems
  • Artificial Intelligence based Cyber Security
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Security
  • Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
  • Mathematical Evaluation of Security Solutions
