The 2nd International Workshop on Block chain-Oriented Cyber security Engineering (BOCE 2019) will be held in conjunction with IEEE CCECE 2019 conference, in Edmonton, Canada from May 5- 8 and aims to unite scholars, practitioners, and innovative startups from all relevant cyber security, trust, and privacy disciplines who work and study in the space of block chain technology.
The first round was held in conjunction with IEEE-block chain 2018 conference, Halifax, Canada.
Objectives and scope:
Cyber security is a pressing need of governments, businesses, and individuals that gets utmost priority for enforcement in almost any organizations. Rapid advances are being made in block chain technology (both in the number of published papers and the number of active researchers) with broadly diverse applications that promise to better meet business and individual security needs. Almost any article on block chain will point out that the cyber security could be revitalized if it is supported with block chain technology. Block chain as a popular ledger technology has the potential to be leveraged in different aspects of cyber security, digital forensics, cyber threat hunting and cyber threat intelligence. Block chain characteristics such as decentralization, verifiability and immutability may revolve current cyber security mechanisms for ensuring authenticity, reliability and integrity of data.
In order for its value to be practically and scientifically realized, the Workshop’s goal is to provide a sampling of recent advances and ideas on progresses of research and the practical usage of block chain technologies and smart contracts in addressing cyber security, forensics, cyber threat hunting and intelligence challenges and issues. The scope for this workshop will be the retrospective study of past trends and the current state of block chain-oriented cyber security in a clear context, allowing to imagine and then create future vectors in this specific domain. Of special interests are block chain-based secure data management implementations addressing privacy, integrity and other crucial security and forensics requirements.
Workshop suggested topics include, not exhaustively, empirical and theoretical studies of the following:
