  Download Call for Papers: pdf (2 pages, 468 kB).

RFIDsec is the premier workshop devoted to security and privacy in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) with participants throughout the world. RFIDsec brings together researchers from academia and industry for topics of importance to improving the security and privacy of RFID, NFC, contactless technologies, and the Internet of Things. RFIDsec bridges the gap between cryptographic researchers and RFID developers through invited talks and contributed presentations. The Workshop on RFID Security and Privacy 2013 is the ninth edition of a series of workshops. This year’s edition will be organized by the Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communications (IAIK), Graz University of Technology and take place in Graz, Austria. Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
  • New applications for secure RFID, NFC and other constrained systems
  • Resource-efficient implementations of cryptography
  • Attacks on RFID systems (e.g. side-channel attacks, fault attacks, hardware tampering)
  • Data protection and privacy-enhancing techniques
  • Cryptographic protocols (e.g. authentication, key distribution, scalability issues)
  • Integration of secure RFID systems (e.g. infrastructures, middleware and security)
  • Data mining and other systemic approaches to RFID security
  • RFID hardware security (e.g. Physical Unclonable Functions (PUFs) , RFID Trojans)
  • Case studies
Authors are invited to submit papers (PDF or PS format) with novel contributions. Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous and not submitted to other conferences/workshops that have proceedings or journals. Submissions must be written in English and should be at most 15 pages in total. Papers not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration. All submissions will be blind-refereed. Submission implies willingsness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper.

Papers can be submitted via the EasyChair submission system.
