[PLUG] CollSec '10 Submission Deadline Approaching

We're writing to remind you that the submission deadline for 2010
Workshop on Collaborative Methods for Security and Privacy (CollSec
'10) is approaching. Please submit your work by Tuesday, April 20, 2010,
11:59 p.m. PDT.

The complexity and sophistication of security threats are expected to
increase further in the near future. Existing security solutions might
soon become useless in the face of attacks that will most likely be
launched from many computers at once (for example, the use of large
botnets). An appropriate answer to such threats should rely on
collaborative methods that harness the collective strength of many
independent units. When it comes to defending against a given threat,
different end-units as well as entire networks are essentially
performing the same work redundantly. As a result, the need to share
knowledge (for accelerating detection and response to new attacks and
threats) and resources (increasing efficiency and reducing resources
consumption) becomes clear.

While the workshop will touch on themes that are at the heart of the
USENIX Security Symposium, discussion will focus on the boundary between
collaborative algorithms and swarm intelligence and the implementation
domains of networking, privacy, and security.

Proposed topics for the workshop include but are not limited to the

* Collaborative detection of distributed network attacks
* Peer-to-peer-based security mechanisms
* Adversarial abuse of collaborative security mechanisms
* Anti-epidemic network vaccination
* Efficient implementation of security and privacy algorithms through
sharing knowledge and resources
* Increasing energy efficiency through collaboration in network security
* Use of low complexity property testing methods by decentralized
security agents
* Collaboration in future Internet security and privacy layers
* Novel collaborative network architectures for increased security and
* Trust and authentication in collaborative environments
* Collaboration-aware network protocols: security and privacy aspects
* Collaborative privacy management: access controls and permissions
* Decentralized, trusted third-party approaches and methods
* Intrusion detection in collaborative and cloud computing environments
* Security configuration based on social context groups (social
firewall, authentication protocols, etc.)
* Security algorithms inspired by human social-cooperation interactions
* Providing security and privacy for social overlay networks
* Configuring security protocol parameters based on social and
cooperative information
