1st Workshop on Security and Privacy in Big Data

Nowadays, huge amounts of data from sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things, enterprise and Internet are collected, shared and analysed. The features of Big Data such as Veracity, Volume, Variety and dynamicity bring new challenges to security and privacy protection.To protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability, traditional security measures such as cryptography, log/event analysis, intrusion detection/prevention, and access control have taken a new dimension. To protect the privacy, new pattern of measures such as privacy-preserved data analysis need to be explored. There is a lot of work to be done in this emerging field.

Recognizing Big Data security and privacy as an emerging area, this workshop intends to provide a venue for interested researchers and practitioners to get together and exchange ideas.Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:

  • Security technologies for collecting of Big Data
  • Cryptography and Big Data
  • Intrusion detection and transmission surveillance of Big Data
  • Storage and system security for Big Data
  • Integrity protection and authentication of Big Data
  • Big Data forensics
  • Access control of Big Data
  • Privacy aware analysis and retrieval of Big Data
  • Privacy aware data fusionofBig Data

We also encourage novel paradigms and controversial ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is to act as a venue for creative debate and interaction in security- and privacy-sensitive areas of computing and communication impacted by Big Data. We will favor submissions that are radical, forward-looking, and open-ended, as opposed to mature work on the verge of conference publication.
