CALL FOR PAPERS
The Internet Society Symposium on Network and Distributed System Security
Where: Catamaran Resort, San Diego, California
When: March 11-13, 1998
GOAL: The symposium will foster information exchange between hardware and
software developers of network and distributed system security services.
The intended audience is those who are interested in the practical aspects
of network and distributed system security, focusing on actual system
design and implementation, rather than theory. Encouraging and enabling
the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the state of available
security technology is the major focus of symposium. Symposium proceedings
will be published by the Internet Society. Topics for the symposium
include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Architectures for large-scale, heterogeneous distributed systems
* Security in malleable systems: mobile code, mobile agents, dynamic policy
* Special problems: e.g. interplay between security goals and other goals --
efficiency, reliability, interoperability, resource sharing, and cost.
* Integrating security services with system and application security
facilities and with application protocols, including message handling,
file transport, remote file access, directories, time synchronization,
data base management, routing, voice and video multicast, network
management, boot services, and mobile computing.
* Fundamental services: authentication, integrity, confidentiality,
authorization, non-repudiation, and availability.
* Supporting mechanisms and APIs: key management and certification
infrastructures, audit, and intrusion detection.
* Telecommunications security, especially for emerging technologies -- very
large systems like the Internet, high-speed systems like the gigabit
testbeds, wireless systems, and personal communication systems.
* Controls: firewalls, packet filters, application gateways
* Object security and security objects
* Network information resources and tools such as World Wide Web (WWW),
Gopher, Archie, and WAIS.
* Electronic commerce: payment services, fee-for-access, EDI, notary;
endorsement, licensing, bonding, and other forms of assurance; intellectual

LOCAL ARRANGEMENTS CHAIR:

SUBMISSIONS: The committee invites technical papers and panel
proposals, for topics of technical and general interest. Technical
papers should be 10-20 pages in length. Panel proposals should be two
pages and should describe the topic, identify the panel chair, explain
the format of the panel, and list three to four potential panelists.
Technical papers will appear in the proceedings. A description of each
panel will appear in the proceedings, and may at the discretion of the
panel chair, include written position statements from each panelist.
Each submission must contain a separate title page with the type of
submission (paper or panel), the title or topic, the names of the
author(s), organizational affiliation(s), telephone and FAX numbers,
postal addresses, Internet electronic mail addresses, and must list a
single point of contact if more than one author. The names of authors,
affiliations, and other identifying information should appear only on
the separate title page.
Submissions must be received by 1 August 1997, and should be made via
electronic mail in either PostScript or ASCII format. If the committee
is unable to print a PostScript submission, it will be returned and
hardcopy requested. Therefore, PostScript submissions should arrive
well before 1 August. If electronic submission is difficult,
submissions should be sent via postal mail.
All submissions and program related correspondence (only) should be
directed to the program chair: Matt Bishop, Department of Computer
Science, University of California at Davis, Davis CA 95616-8562,

Each submission will be acknowledged by e-mail. If acknowledgment is
not received within seven days, please contact the program chair as in-
dicated above. Authors and panelists will be notified of acceptance by
1 October 1997. Instructions for preparing camera-ready copy for the
proceedings will be sent at that time. The camera-ready copy must be
received by 1 November 1997.
