The First IEEE LCN Workshop on Network Security (WoNS 2005)
                   Sydney, Australia, November 15-17, 2005.

The First International Workshop on Network Security (WoNS), will be a
one-day workshop, held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Local
Computer Networks (LCN). The workshop will bring together networking
researchers, engineers, and practitioners with participants from
industry, academia, and government.

The workshop will be a full-day event on Tuesday November 15th. (Please

Topics of Interest:

The proliferation of commercial activities over different networked
systems has brought security concerns on an unprecedented scale. From
traditional Internet-based applications to newly emerging ubiquitous
services over 3G, Wireless LAN, and mobile ad hoc networks, there is an
increasing demand of measures to guarantee the confidentiality,
integrity, and availability of system services.

The main purpose of this workshop is to promote further research
interests and activities on network security. It is also aimed at
increasing the synergy between academic and industrial researchers
working in this area. We are interested in experimental,
systems-related, and work-in-progress papers in all aspects of network
security. The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

      * Novel and emerging secure architecture
      * Study of attack strategies, attack modeling
      * Key management
      * Intrusion detection techniques
      * Intrusion response, alarm management, and correlation analysis
      * Study of tradeoffs between security and system performance
      * Intrusion tolerance systems
      * Secure protocols
      * Security for emerging network technologies (e.g., ad hoc
networks, sensor networks, WiMAX, WPAN, etc.)

Papers should describe original, previously unpublished work, not
currently under review by another conference, workshop, or journal.
Paper length should not exceed 20 pages. Papers should be submitted
electronically in PDF format via EDAS.

Accepted papers will appear in the IEEE LCN conference proceedings.
