Network Security Analysis for Cyberspace (NSAC 2021)


With more and more serious network threats happening in recent years, attackers and defenders make fierce confrontations in all areas of cyberspace. To better solve these challenges, new models and methods are constantly emerging. This workshop, collocated with the 6th IEEE International Conference on Data Science in Cyberspace (IEEE DSC2021), will bring researchers together to exchange their ideas, innovations, and original methods for network secure analysis, and to identify future research directions. NSAC 2021 workshop aims to research from various domains, including but not limited to software vulnerability fuzzing, malware behavior analysis, encrypted traffic flow analysis, intrusion detection, honeypot detection, etc, and how these innovations can be applied in real-world cyberspace applications.


Topics of interest include but not limited to:

1.Software vulnerability fuzzing
2.Malware behavior analysis
3.Encrypted traffic flow analysis
4.Network measurement and behavior analysis
5.Intrusion detection
6.Honeypot detection
7.Network attack detection and analysis
8.Event analysis and audit of AI theory
9.Big data analysis
10.Research challenges on data security
11.Threat information analysis
12.Blockchain analysis
