Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS)

The Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) is a top venue that fosters information exchange among researchers and practitioners of computer, network and distributed system security. The target audience includes those interested in practical aspects of network and distributed system security, with a focus on actual system design and implementation. A major goal is to encourage and enable the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of practical security technologies.

Areas/Topics of Interest

  • Anti-malware techniques: detection, analysis, and prevention
  • Cyber-crime defense and forensics (e.g., anti-phishing, anti-blackmailing, anti-fraud techniques)
  • Security for future Internet architectures and designs (e.g., Software-Defined Networking)
  • Implementation, deployment and management of network security policies
  • Integrating security in network protocols (e.g., routing, naming, and management)
  • Cyber attack (e.g., APTs, botnets, DDoS) prevention, detection, investigation, and response
  • Software/firmware analysis, customization, and transformation for systems security
  • Privacy and anonymity in networks and distributed systems
  • Security and privacy for blockchains and cryptocurrencies
  • Public key infrastructures, key management, certification, and revocation
  • Security for cloud/edge computing
  • Security and privacy of mobile/smartphone platforms
  • Security for cyber-physical systems (e.g., autonomous vehicles, industrial control systems)
  • Security for emerging networks (e.g., home networks, IoT, body-area networks, VANETs)
  • Security for large-scale, critical infrastructures (e.g., electronic voting, smart grid)
  • Security and privacy of systems based on machine learning and AI
  • Security of Web-based applications and services (e.g., social networking, crowd-sourcing)
  • Special problems and case studies: e.g., tradeoffs between security and efficiency, usability, cost, and ethics
  • Usable security and privacy
  • Trustworthy Computing software and hardware to secure networks and systems
