                 5th Workshop on Secure Network Protocols

The 5th workshop on Secure Network Protocols (NPSec) is a one-day event
held in conjunction with with the 17th IEEE International Conference on
Network Protocols (ICNP 2009). NPSec focuses on two general areas.  
The first focus is on the development and analysis of secure or hardened
protocols for the operation (establishment and maintenance) of network
infrastructure, including such targets as secure multidomain, ad hoc, sensor
or overlay networks, or other related target areas.  This can include new
protocols, enhancements to existing protocols, protocol analysis, and new
attacks on existing protocols.  The second focus is on employing such secure
network protocols to create or enhance network applications. Examples include
collaborative firewalls, incentive strategies for multiparty networks, and
deployment strategies to enable secure applications.  

NPSec 2009 particularly welcomes new ideas on security in the context of
future Internet design, such as architectural considerations for future
Internet security and new primitives for supporting secure network protocol
and application design.  

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
1. security in future Internet architectures
 - role of security in future architectures
 - integrating security into future protocols and applications
2. secure and/or resilient network protocols, e.g.:
- internetworking/routing
- LANs and WLANs
- mobile/cellular data networks
- p2p and other overlay networks
- federated trust systems
- sensor networks
3. vulnerabilities of existing protocols and applications (both theoretical and case studies), including attacks
4. key distribution/management
5. intrusion detection and response
6. incentive systems for p2p systems and MANETs routing
7. secure protocol configuration and deployment
