On November 14 and 15 this year the third central European Cybersecurity Conference took place in Munich. On the occasion of this event consortium members of the SIMARGL Project presented their results out of the project.
This conference is organised by the University of Maribor. The conference provides a platform for academics and practitioners to exchange information on cybersecurity. The aim is to promote an active dialogue about technical and social aspects of cybersecurity.
The invited speakers of this year were Uwe Ewald, Jean Francois Lalande and Tal Pavel. Each of the three speakers offered very interesting insights into his research field. Furthermore, 19 presentations of different scientists led through the two-day conference. The presentations covered a wide range of security-related topics: Forensic Investigations in Vehicle Data Stores, Obfuscated Android App Development and Bitcoin adoption out of user perspective just to name a few of the presentations.
This time, the SIMARGL Project was represented by the four consortium members Jörg Keller, Luca Caviglione, Daniel Spiekermann and Andreas Schaffhauser. The major part of the SIMARGL representation was done by Luca Caviglione and his talk about IPv6 Covert Channels in the Wild. The paper is written by Wojciech Mazurczyk and Luca Caviglione and analyses the future possibilities of Covert Channels arising through the usage of IPv6.
Leaflets were handed out in the break- and conference room and supplemented by pleasant conversations.
Under the name "European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference" this conference will take place next year in France and we are looking forward to presenting new more concrete results from the SIMARGL project.
