CALL FOR PAPERS
The Internet Society Symposium on
Network and Distributed System Security
3-4 February 1994, Catamaran Hotel, San Diego, California
The symposium will bring together people who are building software and
hardware to provide network or distributed system security services.
The symposium is intended for those interested in practical aspects of
network and distributed system security, rather than in theory. Symposium
proceedings will be published by the Internet Society. Topics for the
symposium include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Design and implementation of services--access control, authentication,
availability, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation
--including criteria for placing services at particular protocol layers.
* Design and implementation of security mechanisms and support
services--encipherment and key management systems, authorization
and audit systems, and intrusion detection systems.
* Requirements and architectures for distributed applications and
network functions--message handling, file transport, remote
file access, directories, time synchronization, interactive
sessions, remote data base management and access, routing, voice and
video multicast and conferencing, news groups, network management,
boot services, mobile computing, and remote I/O.
* Special issues and problems in security architecture, such as
-- very large systems like the international Internet, and
-- high-speed systems like the gigabit testbeds now being built.
* Interplay between security goals and other goals--efficiency,
reliability, interoperability, resource sharing, and low cost.

SUBMISSIONS: The committee seeks both original technical papers and
proposals for panel discussions on technical and other topics of general
interest. Technical papers should be 10-20 pages in length. Panels
should include three or four speakers. A panel proposal must name the
panel chair, include a one-page topic introduction authored by the chair,
and also include one-page position summaries authored by each speaker
Both the technical papers and the panel papers will appear in the
Submissions must be made by 16 August 1993. Submissions should be made
via electronic mail to
Submissions may be in either of two formats: ASCII or PostScript. If
the committee is unable to read a PostScript submission, it will be
returned and ASCII requested. Therefore, PostScript submissions should
arrive well before 16 August. If electronic submission is absolutely
impossible, submissions should be sent via postal mail to
