International Workshop on IoT Security and Quality of Service


The Internet of Things (IoT) has been defined as a global infrastructure for the information society. This new type of infrastructure makes it possible to offer advanced services by interconnecting objects (physical and/or virtual). This interconnection is made possible by using information and communications technologies that are already existing or still evolving to allow more interoperability. This Internet of Things environment also presents new research challenges, particularly in terms of security concerning IoT objects and their interactions with their environments as well as Quality of Service guarantee while providing IoT applications. By exploiting the capabilities of identification, data capture, processing and communication, the IoT must allow a complete and optimized use of objects in order to offer services to different types of applications, while ensuring security requirements (in terms of confidentiality of IoT communications, authentication of IoT services users, integrity of IoT objects, non-repudiation, access control and availability of IoT resources) but also privacy, trust and Quality of Service guarantee.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Security services provisioning within IoT environments
  • Confidentiality and integrity guarantee for IoT
  • Authentication and access control methods for IoT
  • IoT Trust and Privacy challenges
  • Blockchain based IoT security services
  • Cryptocurrency based technologies for IoT security guarantee
  • Security based IoT architectures
  • Edge and fog computing for IoT security
  • IoT security services self-management
  • QoS guarantee within IoT environments
  • QoS based IoT architectures
  • QoS parameters for IoT environments
  • Energy consumption challenges for IoT environments
  • Edge and fog computing for IoT QoS guarantee
  • IoT QoS self-management
  • IoT and Autonomic Computing
