The Internet Society
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
* 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
* Network Perimeter Controls: firewalls, packet filters, application
BEST PAPER AWARD:
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

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:

FAX: +1 (310) 823-6714
Dates, final call for papers, advance program, and registration
information will be available soon at the URL: httl//www.isoc.org/ndss2000.
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.
