The International Workshop on
Security and Privacy of Sensing Systems

The First International Workshop on Security and Privacy of Sensing Systems (Sensors S&P 2023) will be held in conjunction with ACM SenSys 2023.

As sensing systems become increasingly ubiquitous in various safety-critical IoT applications, such as smart cities, healthcare, environmental monitoring, and industrial automation, providing security and privacy guarantees becomes increasingly elusive. The widespread deployment of networked sensors and the rapid advancements in black-box deep learning models capable of encoding large amounts of information into embeddings have led to heightened concerns about the potential misuse of sensitive data and the vulnerability of these systems to malicious attacks. The shift from specialized, domain-specific sensors to universal sensor paradigms necessitates novel approaches to ensuring security and privacy in these complex IoT ecosystems.

The Sensors S&P workshop addresses the above and other unique challenges to providing security and privacy guarantees in IoT sensor systems. We will provide a forum for researchers, practitioners, and industry partners to exchange ideas, present novel research findings, and foster collaborations among participants related to sensor security and privacy. The event will cover a wide range of topics related to security and privacy in sensing systems, including but not limited to:

Keynote Speaker

We are excited to announce Berkay Celik as our keynote speaker for Sensors SP 2023. Dr. Celik is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Purdue University, co-director of the PurSec Lab and member of CERIAS. He earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from the Penn State University, where he was advised by Professor Patrick McDaniel and led graduate students of the Systems and Internet Infrastructure Security Labratory (SIIS). His research investigates the design and evaluation of security for software and systems, specifically on emerging computing platforms and the complex environments in which they operate. Through systems design, program analysis and formal methods, his research seeks to improve security and privacy guarantees in commodity computer systems. His research approach is best illustrated by my extensive work in safety, security and privacy of IoT systems.
