Technologies for Enhancing Security & Privacy in Future Communication Networks

Dates: 6-9 July 2022
Location: Hybrid, both online and in-person at the Netaji Subhash University of Technology (NSUT), Dwarka Campus, New Delhi, India

Organized by the IEEE Communication Society Delhi Chapter

Program Chair: Mr. Prashant Chugh

About the Program

The program will focus on enhanced security and privacy in the communication network infrastructure and services. As networks evolve from simple point to point systems towards complex, software-defined, ultra-high capacity and reach, and distributed cloud environments, new security and privacy challenges have emerged. Further, rapid advancement in Quantum Computers and Quantum Algorithms is also posing a threat to the security and privacy of future networks. Security and trust management is especially important in smart city IoT as well as industrial IoT environment.

This program aims to provide information to students about current as well as upcoming security challenges and impart theoretical and hands-on sessions on select technologies that can be used for enhancing security and privacy. Block chain technology, machine learning, quantum-safe-cryptography, and homomorphic encryption are some of the technologies that shall be discussed.
