We warmly welcome you to SECRYPT 2013 - the International Conference on Security and Cryptography , which is held, this year in Reykjavík, Iceland. The SECRYPT 2013 is integrated in the ICETE (International Conference on e-Business and Telecommunications) joint conference, which puts together six complementary conferences, namely DCNET, ICE-B, OPTICS, SECRYPT, SIGMAP and WINSYS, covering a broad range of related fields, including data communication networking, e-business, optical communication systems, security and cryptography, signal processing and multimedia applications, and wireless networks and information systems. Sponsored by INSTICC (the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) and co-organized by RU – Reykjavík University, the ICETE joint conference is technically co-sponsored by Photonics 21 and held in technical cooperation with IEEE Systems Council, ACM SIGMM (Special Interest Group on Multimedia), ACM SIGMIS (Special Interest
Group on Management Information Systems) and ACM SIGSAC (Special Interest Group on Security, Audit and Control) and has OMG (Object Management Group) as an Organizational Sponsor. The technical program includes also papers discussing and presenting novel results on different theoretical and practical aspects of data protection, privacy, security, and cryptography, with contribution from, and of interest to academia, industry, and government. It also includes four outstanding keynote lectures, delivered by experts in their respective fields: Pascal Lorenz (University of Haute Alsace, France). David Naccache (Ecole Normale Superieure, France), Donal O'Mahony (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland), and Laurence T. Yang (Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China and St Francis Xavier University, Canada) We therefore expect the program to appeal to a global audience of scientists and practitioners in the field. In response to the call for papers, 173 manuscripts were submitted to SECRYPT 2013. The reviewing process was double blind (meaning the identity of the authors was not known to reviewers, and vice-versa). Each paper was reviewed by at least 3 members (in many cases 4) of the Program Committee. The review process was rigorous and selective, resulting in the acceptance of 22 full papers (12,72% acceptance rate), 24 short papers, and 32 posters. The extended versions of selected best papers of the conference will be invited to appear in a post-conference book that will be published by Springer. A successful conference involves more than paper presentations; it is also a meeting place, where ideas about new research projects and other ventures are discussed and debated. Therefore, a social event including a conference dinner/banquet has been planned for the evening of July 30 in order to promote social networking. We would like to express our thanks to all colleagues involved in supporting this conference. We would like to thank in particular: the members of the Program Committee and the external reviewers, who really did a great job, devoting expertise and time in reviewing the papers and participating in the discussion process the panelists and invited speakers, for their invaluable contribution, in sharing their vision and knowledge; all the authors who submitted papers, whether or not the paper was eventually included in the program; Giovanni Livraga, for serving as publicity chair. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the INSTICC team; organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. We hope that you will find the conference and these proceedings of interest for your activity and a helpful reference in your work. Enjoy the program and your stay in Reykjavík!
