2nd Workshop on Communication Security (WCS 2017)
affiliated with EUROCRYPT 2017
Paris (France), April 30, 2017



In the last few years we have seen a rising interest and dialogue between two distinct approaches to security: the well-established field of cryptography and the recently explored field of physical-layer (or information-theoretic) security.
The two approaches are based on different assumptions and have developed
their own performance metrics and methodologies, as well as their own
implemented solutions.
A seminal work by Bellare, Tessaro and Vardy in 2012 plays the role of a Rosetta
Stone by putting side by side metrics and languages of the two fields and
establishing a bridge between them.
Furthermore, engineers have been studying how to integrate solutions from both
fields in their products rather than relying exclusively on one of the two,
confirming the interest in bridging the two approaches.
This workshop aims at getting together experts from both fields to continue this
promising joint research path of physical-layer security and cryptography.
The one-day event will include the presentation of peer-reviewed papers and
two prominent keynote talks by Jean-Claude Belfiore (Telecom ParisTech), and
by Stefano Tessaro (University of California, Santa Barbara).

Contributions are solicited on topics including (but not limited to):
- Semantic security for the wiretap channel
- Coding strategies for semantic security
- Adversarial wiretap channels
- Joint physical layer-cryptography solutions for secure wireless communications
- Cross-disciplinary solutions for authentication
- Secure cross-layer design techniques
- Physical-layer enhanced cryptography

Prospective authors are invited to submit novel, previously unpublished
scientific contributions for peer review at:

Contributions will be published as chapters of a Springer book in the LNEE series.
