The 11th International Workshop on Information Security Applications (WISA
2010)was held on Jeju Island, Korea, during August 24–26, 2010. The workshop
was hosted by the Korea Institute of Information Security and Cryptology
(KIISC), supported by the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute
(ETRI) and the Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA), sponsored
by the Ministry of Public Administration and Security (MoPAS) and the Korea
Communications Commission (KCC).
The aim of the workshop was to serve as a forum for presenting new research
and experimental results in the area of information security applications from
academic communities as well as from industry. The workshop program covered
a wide range of security aspects, from cryptography to systems and network
security as well as experimental work.
It was our great pleasure and honor to serve as the Program Committee
Co-chairs of WISA 2010. This year, too, the proceedings of the workshop were
published in the LNCS series of Springer. The WISA 2010 Program Committee
received 107 papers from14 countries. The submissions were exceptionally strong,
and the committee accepted 25 papers for the full-paper presentation track. All
the papers were carefully evaluated through blind peer-review by at least three
members of the Program Committee.We would like to say that acceptance is a
great achievement since the selection process was highly competitive, and many
good papers were not accepted.
In addition to the contributed papers, the workshop had four invited talks.
Hong Sun Kim, Soung-Ju Kang, Jungwoo Ryoo and Moti Yung gave us distinguished
special talks entitled “Security Challenges Posed by Mobile Internet
Services,”“Information Security Policy for Smart Korea,”“Software Security by
Design,”and “Embedding Cryptographic Components in Complex System,” respectively.
Many people helped and worked hard to make WISA 2010 successful. We
would like to thank all the people involved in the technical program and in organizing
the workshop. We are very grateful to the Program Committee members
and external referees for their time and efforts in reviewing the submissions and
selecting the accepted papers. We should also express our special thanks to the
Organizing Committee members and the General Chair, Jongin Lim, for their
hard work in managing the workshop.
