           Year 2000 Network and Distributed System Security 
                         Symposium (NDSS 2000)

             Catamaran Resort Hotel, San Diego, California
                           February 2-4, 2000


  Paper and panel submissions due: June 16, 1999
  Author notification: August 17, 1999
  Final versions of papers and panels due: October 15, 1999


  This symposium aims to foster information exchange among researchers
  and practitioners of network and distributed system security
  services.  The intended audience includes those who are interested
  in practical aspects of network and distributed system security,
  with the focus on actual system design and implementation, rather
  than theory. A major goal of the symposium is to encourage and
  enable the Internet community to apply, deploy, and advance the
  state of available security technology.  The proceedings of the
  symposium will be published by the Internet Society.

  Submissions are solicited for, but are not limited to, the
  following topics:

  * Secure Electronic Commerce, e.g., payment, barter, EDI,
    notarization/timestamping, endorsement and licensing.
  * Intellectual Property Protection: protocols, schemas,
    implementations, metering, watermarking, other forms of rights
  * Implementation, deployment and management of network security
  * Integrating Security in Internet protocols: routing, naming,
    TCP/IP, multicast, network management, and, of course, the Web.
  * Attack-resistant protocols and services.
  * Special problems and case studies: e.g. interplay and tradeoffs
    between security and efficiency, usability, reliability and cost.
  * Security for collaborative applications and services: tele- and
    video-conferencing, groupwork, etc.
  * Fundamental services: authentication, data integrity,
    confidentiality, authorization, non-repudiation, and availability.
  * Supporting mechanisms and APIs: key management and certification,
    revocation, audit trails and accountability.
  * Integrating security services with system and application security
    facilities and protocols, e.g., message handling, file
    transport/access, directories, time synchronization, data base

    management, boot services, mobile computing.
  * Security for emerging technologies -- sensor networks, specialized
    testbeds, wireless/mobile (and ad hoc) networks, personal
    communication systems, and large heterogeneous distributed systems.
  * Intrusion Avoidance, Detection, and Response: systems, experiences
    and architectures
  * Network Perimeter Controls: firewalls, packet filters, application


  A best paper award will be introduced at NDSS 2000. This award will
  be presented at the symposium to the authors of the best paper to
  be selected by the program committee.

  The committee invites both technical papers and panel proposals.
  Technical papers should be at most 20 pages long. Panel proposals
  should be at most 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 the panelists.

  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, e-mail addresses, and must specify
  the contact author in case of multi-author submissions. The names
  of authors, affiliations, and other identifying information should
  appear only on the separate title page.

  Submissions must be received by June 16, 1999, and must be made
  via electronic mail in either PostScript or ASCII format.  If
  the committee is unable to print a PostScript submission, a
  hardcopy will be requested. Therefore, PostScript submissions
  must arrive well before the deadline.

  All submissions and program related correspondence (only) should
  be directed to the program chair:

  Dates, final call for papers, advance program, and registration
  information will be available soon at the URL: httl//

  Each submission will be acknowledged by e-mail.  If acknowledgment
  is not received within seven days, please contact the program
  chair as indicated above.  Authors and panelists will be notified

  of acceptance by August 17, 1999.  Instructions for preparing
  camera-ready copy for the proceedings will be sent at that time.
  The camera-ready copy must be received by October 15, 1999.
