IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COMPSAC 2022 AUTHORS 

Because of uncertainties related to Covid 19, COMPSAC 2022, currently planned as an in-person event to be held in Turin, Italy, may be conducted in a hybrid format – with some sessions in-person and some over the Internet. If the conference format is hybrid, authors of accepted papers will be able to decide to present their papers either virtually or in-person in Turin. 

However, if the pandemic worsens, the conference will be completely virtual as it was in 2020 and 2021, and all presentations will be done virtually. We will announce in the submission acceptance letters to authors whether the conference will be hybrid or virtual. Registration fees will be adjusted to reflect the format of the conference.

The 5th IEEE International Workshop on Secure Digital Identity Management (SDIM 2022)

Goal of the workshop:

Secure digital identity management, required by cloud services, federated services, or newest distributed and decentralized technologies such as blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, is receiving increasing attention from both service providers’ and end users’ perspectives, in terms of protection of enterprise assets and customers’ privacy in the cloud, and possibly in the future virtual reality environments as well, respectively.

This workshop solicits contributions describing state‐of‐the‐art methodology and technology innovations in the field of secure identity management, encourages experience sharing (both positive and negative ones), and also welcomes work‐in‐progress ideas towards future concepts.

Workshop theme:

The workshop is dedicated to the security and privacy aspects of identity management (IDM) in smart devices, the cloud, or blockchain and distributed ledger environment. Topics are articulated around several important themes as “concept design”, “enabling technologies”, “federated identities”, “decentralized identities” and “applications”. It is expected they will attract both theoretical and empirical works from the IDM society, the cloud computing society, and the decentralized identity management society.

Scope of the workshop:

Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of secure identity management will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome. Practically‐oriented approaches will also be appreciated.

  • Identity‐based access control and personal data management
  • Biometric identities
  • Privacy‐preserving identity attributes processing and analysis
  • Service‐oriented architecture for IDM in cloud
  • Identity federations & trust fabrics
  • Cryptographic methods for IDM
  • PKI architecture, security policy, and operation method
  • Identity management in the IoT environment
  • IDM on a blockchain, self‐sovereign identity or other decentralized identity platform
  • IDM in the virtual environment and its connection to the physical world
  • Anonymization, pseudonymization, and other privacy / data protection methods
  • Legal, ethical, and socioeconomic aspects

Likely participants: eID, federation and digital IDM researchers, privacy regulation and technology researchers, security and access management researchers, cryptographic researchers, blockchain & distributed ledger identity experts, SSI/DID experts, IDM industries, and government agencies.
