WS09: Workshop on Enabling Security, Trust, and Privacy in 6G Wireless Systems

The IEEE Globecom Workshop on Enabling Security, Trust, and Privacy in 6G Wireless Systems will take place on 4th December 2023 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The objective of the workshop is to both foster and develop the ground-breaking technique to provide trustworthy and resilient wireless communications. In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in topics of interest to include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Physical layer security for 6G
  • Trust and trustworthiness in 6G
  • Secure signal processing
  • Information theoretic security
  • Security verification and performance metrics
  • Cross-layer security solutions
  • 5G/6G security (false base station attacks, sidelink security, integration of new services)
  • Zero-touch security solutions
  • Context-aware, semantic security
  • Covert wireless communications
  • Physical layer authentication and key agreement
  • Security and privacy of joint communications and sensing/integrated sensing and communication
  • Hardware security
  • Interplay between emerging technologies (intelligent reflecting surface, joint communication and sensing, AI) and their role towards trustworthy communication
  • Attack/defense modelling (active and jamming attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, etc.)
  • Post-Quantum security and cryptography
  • Security challenges for AI/ML technologies
  • Security of space information systems
  • Optical wireless technology for secure connectivity
  • Security mechanisms for zero-energy devices
  • Security-aware access control
  • AI-based security solutions for wireless systems
  • Prototype, practical testbeds, and performance evaluation
  • Security and privacy for IoTs, HetNets, massive MIMO systems, and mm-wave, THz transmission

Stefano Tomasin received the Ph.D. degree from the University of Padova, Italy. During his studies he did internships with IBM Research (Switzerland) and Philips Research (Netherlands). He then joined the University of Padova where he is now Full Professor. He was visiting faculty at Qualcomm, San Diego (CA), the Polytechnic University in Brooklyn (NY) and the Mathematical and Algorithmic Sciences Laboratory of Huawei in Paris (France). His current research interests include physical layer security, security of global navigation satellite systems, signal processing for wireless communications, synchronization, and scheduling of communication resources. He is a senior member of IEEE and a member of EURASIP. He is an Editor of the EURASIP Journal of Wireless Communications and Networking and a Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security.


We would like to thank the network of proposers of the COST Action CA22168 for their participation in organizing this Workshop.
