I hope all attendees enjoyed the MM&Sec
workshop and will attend MM&Sec
2009 in Princeton!
The 10th ACM Multimedia and Security Workshop will take place in
Oxford University Computing Laboratory, Oxford, UK. Its objective is
to identify key research issues in the areas of multimedia security, such as
data protection, media forensics, covert
communication, and security in biometrics. We expect the
workshop to motivate such research and to establish fruitful
relationships with the key actors from academia, industry, and
government. The workshop will include a keynote address, full papers,
short papers, and a rump session. This event continues a successful series of workshops started in 1998.
- Discussion of emerging technologies in digital multimedia
authentication, encryption, identification, fingerprinting,
steganography and steganalysis, secure multimedia networking and
biometric user authentication.
- Identification of critical high impact research problems addressing
specific deficiencies in the field of secure multimedia distribution and
- Formulation of target applications of identified technologies in both
the commercial, civilian, and military sectors.
- Exposition of legal and business issues connected to multimedia
Papers addressing security in multimedia processing,
transmission, and consumption are welcomed. Both theoretical concepts
dealing with fundamental performance issues and application-oriented
contributions within this scope will be considered. Software and
hardware demonstrations are highly encouraged.
Topics include, but are not limited to,
- Multimedia watermarking, fingerprinting and identification.
- Multimedia authentication and encryption. Signal processing in
- Steganography and steganalysis.
- Data hiding in biometrics, security issues of biometrics, biometric
template protection, security in multimodal and multifactor authentication.
- Practical systems exhibiting data hiding characteristics.
- Digital media forensics.
- Multimedia network protection, privacy and security.
- Secure multimedia system design, trusted computing, and protocol security.
- Security evaluation and benchmarks.
- Emerging applications.
- Legal and business issues as well as their interaction with
