Matthias Wählisch has been invited to participate in the Dagstuhl Seminar "Information-centric Networking and Security".
In recent years, Information-centric Networking (ICN) has received a lot attention from both academic and industrial sectors. ICN offers a means of inter-networking that is radically different from today's IP-based Internet which is host- or address-centric. Security and privacy issues in ICN have become increasingly important, as ICN technology gradually matures and nears real-world deployment. As is well known, in today's Internet, security and privacy features were originally not present and had to be incrementally and individually retrofitted (with varying success) over the last 35 years. In contrast, since ICN-based architectures (e.g., NDN, CCNx, etc.) are still evolving, it is both timely and important to explore ICN security and privacy issues as well as devise and assess possible mitigation techniques. Therefore, the general purpose of this Dagstuhl seminar is to discuss and explore potential ICN security features, attacks, privacy leaks, and potential means of mitigating vulnerabilities.
Schloss Dagstuhl is the world's premier venue for informatics. World-class scientists, promising young researchers, and practitioners come together to exchange their knowledge and to discuss their research findings.
