SECSI - Secure Component and System Identification

April 26-27, 2010
Cologne, Germany


Call for Papers [pdf]

The secure identification of devices, a seemingly specific problem, is a major concern for a large number of applications. Counterfeiting of all kinds of product - ranging from textiles over pharmaceuticals to bank notes and replacement parts (from printer cartridges over ICs to spare parts for heavy machinery) - make secure device identification a pressing problem. Secure identification is also important for applications such as access control.

The goal of the 2nd SECSI workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in this emerging area. The main focus will be on technical solutions for the problem of device identification. Thus, we invite researchers from academia and industry as well as people from the application areas of device identification to contribute to SECSI. Especially welcome will be papers dealing with the following aspects:

Contributions summarizing the state-of-the-art and those with new solutions are welcome. Should you have questions about the suitability of your contribution for SECSI, you are welcome to contact the Program Co-Chairs Christof Paar and Pim Tuyls at The workshop will consist of invited and contributed presentations.

The workshop is organized by eurobits and ECRYPT, the European Network of Excellence in Cryptography. The workshop is an activity of ECRYPT's VAMPIRE - Virtual Application and Implementation Research Lab.
