Workshop on Security and Privacy in Big Data

The Eighth International Workshop on Security and Privacy in Big Data

in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2020

6 July 2020, Toronto, Canada




We are in the age of big data. The availability of big data sets significantly promoted the advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Moreover, the appearance of big data also introduces unprecedented challenges to numerous fields, such as information storage, networking for big data transportation, small probability research, and so on. We have witnessed the extensive applications of big data in practice, including automatic manufacturing, driverless cars, Internet of Things, social networks, and so forth.

Security and privacy issue is a critical problem in this big data age. Many works have been carried out focusing on business, application and information processing level of big data, such as data mining and data analysis. We have seen many activities in these fields.  However, security and privacy issues in big data from communications and networking perspective are not extensively explored yet to date. Due to its extraordinary scale, security and privacy in big data faces many challenges, such as generative adversary networks, efficient encryption and decryption algorithms, encrypted information retrieval, attribute based encryption, attacks on availability, reliability and integrity, privacy aware machine learning, privacy protection in big data information publication.

The purpose of this workshop is to offer a timely venue for researchers and industry partners in communications and networking domains to present and discuss their latest results in security and privacy related work of big data.
