About the Symposium

After the grand success of the first ever Security & Privacy Symposium held in 2013 at IIT Kanpur, we now move towards its second edition.

Any average Internet user today has multiple online accounts-with Online Social media, with Third-party Cloud service providers, with On-line banking services etc. With such a lifestyle, it is always possible for an individual or a group to become vulnerable to various online security breaches and privacy threats. Researchers are constantly trying to find out solutions to these problems. Last year, we began this endeavor to bring all the topics related to security and privacy under one roof and build a close-knit community. With the Security & Privacy Symposium 2014, we continue this effort of strengthening our community of researchers, faculty, and students in security and privacy area in India.

SPS’14 features invited talks, panel discussions, and poster presentations on various aspects of security and privacy issues. The symposium seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government presenting novel research on all aspects of security and privacy in the form of a poster.

This year, we are excited to bring you three interesting Workshops at SPS'14. Please apply for the Workshops when you register for SPS. The titles of the Workshops are:

  • Security Threat Analytics for Large Scale Peer-to-Peer Networks (by Prof. Chittaranjan Hota)
