Call for papers:

SECITC brings together computer security researchers, cryptographers, industry representatives and graduate students interested in any aspect of information security and privacy. One of SECITC’s primary goals is to bring together security and privacy researchers and professionals from different communities and provide a forum allowing the informal exchanges necessary for the emergence of new scientific and industrial collaborations. Regarding the scientific papers dissemination, SECITC 2017 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10543, SECITC 2016 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 10006 and for SECITC 2015 post-proceedings was published by Springer as LNCS vol. 9522 in a book titled “Innovative Security Solutions for Information Technology and Communications”. The paper submission and refereeing for SECITC 2018, will take place via EasyChair: and the post-proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. In the year 2018, the board is targeting to have a stronger focus on the technologies from the Cyber Security field without impacting the Crypto focus.

The conference topics comprise all aspects of information security, including but not limited to the following areas:

  • Access control,
  • Cryptography, biometric and watermarking
  • Application security,
  • Attacks and defences,
  • Blockchain Security and Security aspects of alternative currencies,
  • Censorship and censorship-resistance,
  • Cloud and Web Security,
  • Distributed systems security,
  • Embedded systems security,
  • Digital forensics,
  • Hardware security,
  • Information flow analysis,
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Security,
  • Intrusion detection and prevention system,
  • Language-based security,
  • Malware and Ransomware,
  • Mobile security,
  • Network security,
  • New exploits,
  • Policy enforcements,
  • Privacy and anonymity,
  • Protocol security,
  • Reverse-engineering and code obfuscation,
  • Security architectures,
  • Side channel attacks,
  • Surveillance and anti-surveillance,
  • System security,
  • Trust management.

Paolo D’Arco
Bio: Paolo D’Arco was born in Salerno (Italy) on July 7, 1972. He received a Master degree (with honors) in Computer Science in May 1997, and a PhD in Computer Science in February 2002, both from the University of Salerno. During the PhD program he attended a few schools for PhD students on algorithms and cryptography: he was visiting researcher for a semester at the University of Waterloo, in Ontario, (Canada). He also had two short-term visits at the University of Catalunya (Spain), and at Telcordia Technologies – DIMACS- (USA). From November 2001 to October 2002, he was a post-doctoral fellow at the Centre for Applied Cryptographic Research (CACR), in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization (University of Waterloo), under the supervision of professor Douglas Stinson. In 2003 he won a competition for a permanent position as assistant professor at the University of Salerno. In 2014 he received the national scientific qualification (the Italian ASN) as associate professor in two academic areas: Computer Science (cod. 01/B1) and Engineering (cod. 09/H1). Since March 2015, he is associate professor at the Dipartimento di Informatica. His main research interests are cryptography, algorithms and data security. He has worked on the design and the analysis of unconditionally secure (e.g., secret sharing schemes, key distribution, oblivious transfer, private information retrieval from a database) and on some computationally secure (e.g., robust and distributed broadcast schemes, anonymous communication, RFID authentication) cryptographic primitives and protocols. He has also done some crypto-analysis of lightweight protocols. Currently, he is interested in efficient and user-friendly protocols for secure multi-party computation. Title of the presentation: “Ultra-lightweight authentication protocols”
Jean-François LALANDE
Bio: Jean-François Lalande is Associate Professor in the CIDRE team (CentraleSupélec / Inria), in the IRISA laboratory. His research interests are access control policies, software security, and malware analysis for embedded systems. In the last years is has published papers about Android malware in TIFS, Malcon’15 and ’17, LASER’16. He has also participated to the Kharon project ( that uses information flows techniques for analyzing malware behaviours at runtime. Title of the presentation: “Android Malware Analysis: from technical difficulties to scientific challenges”
Denis Jean-Michel BAHEUX
Bio: Denis Baheux had received a master degree in engineering and a master degree in computer science. In 2012 he graduated from École Supérieure d’Électricité (Supélec), a french engineering school (Grande École) with a selective recruiting process. Between 2012 and 2015 he worked for Supélec on state of the art Machine learning algorithms. Skilled in cryptanalysis and low-level software reversing, he integrated the data extraction unit of the IRCGN forensic laboratory in 2015. The Institut de Recherche Criminelle de la Gendarmerie Nationale (IRCGN) is the national forensic laboratory for the french Gendarmerie (law enforcement). Title of the presentation: “Implications of applied cryptography for digital forensics investigations”
