Security & Privacy (LightSec 2016, In Cooperation with IACR)

General Information

LightSec is a crypto workshop aiming at promoting and initiating novel research on the security & privacy issues for applications that can be termed as lightweight security, due to the associated constraints on metrics such as available power, energy, computing ability, area, execution time, and memory requirements. As such applications are becoming ubiquitous, definitely providing an immense value to the society, they are also affecting a greater portion of the public & leading to a plethora of economical & security and privacy related concerns. The goal of this workshop is to create a platform where these concerns can be addressed and proposed solutions are discussed and evaluated.
