This workshop desires to foster the progress in research on the scientific methodology of information security, to improve the links between sub-domains of information security research and to advance the discussion on the scientific methodology in information security. Moreover does this workshop welcome submissions that evaluate existing research results by reproducing experiments.
Call For Paper
TOPICS OF INTEREST INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO
Surveys of scientific methodology in information security.
Fundamentals for a `science of security’.
Discussion of links/similarities between scientific fundamentals of information security and other research domains, such as Economics, Psychology, Biology, Physics or Chemistry (but no papers specific to non-security domains).
Evaluation and extension of existing taxonomies and proposals for new taxonomies in cyber security.
Data collection and measurement.
Work that unifies terminological inconsistencies in cyber security.
Work that reproduces existing experiments, i.e. that confirms/disproves experimental results or that shows how replication platforms can be realized in information security.
Work that discusses the underlying criteria for the design and evaluation for cyber security research testbeds.
Evaluation of the novelty of research contributions and handling of scientific re-inventions.
Methodology in network security, cryptography, information hiding, IoT security, system security, digital forensics, and other sub-disciplines of information security.
Methodology for privacy, information sharing and collaborative work in the context of information security.
“Open science” for cyber security.
History of information security.
Scientometric analyses, e.g. citation behavior, in information security.
Policy issues that influence cyber security research
