Event description:

The 1st Workshop on Wearable Security and Privacy will be held January 30, 2015 at the InterContinental San Juan Hotel in Isla Verde, Puerto Rico, in association with Financial Crypto 2015. This workshop focuses on the unique challenges of security and privacy for wearable devices.  http://sensible.berkeley.edu/WEARABLE-S&P15/

The demand for a variety of technologies in wearable devices has increased in recent years. Products ranging from Google glass, to EEG brainwave signal readers, to heart rate monitors, have opened up many new applications, but also give rise to concerns involving security and privacy. This workshop seeks papers addressing the unique challenges of security and privacy for wearable computing devices. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) empirical and theoretical studies of:

- Novel biometrics
- Behavioral biometrics
- Multi-factor authentication with wearable sensors
- Usability of wearable authentication
- Robustness of wearable authentication systems
- Wearable payment systems
- Bio-cryptographic security protocols
- Attacks against wearable systems
- User impact of attacks on wearable systems
- Access control for wearable data sharing
- User testing of wearable security features
- Economics of security for wearable technologies
- Body worn cameras and sousveillance
- Augmented reality security and privacy
- Privacy of pervasive eye-tracking
- Understanding user privacy concerns for wearable technologies
- User testing of privacy features for wearable technologies
- Privacy notifications for wearable recording devices
- Economics of privacy for wearable technologies
