The most significant changes that have resulted from the rapid technological evolution
in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are related to the way private and
public sector organizations transform their conventional operating models to internet-based
service models (eBusiness, eCommerce and eGovernment).
Specifically, companies, institutions and organizations, irrespective of their size,
are utilizing the Internet for communicating with their customers, suppliers and partners,
for facilitating the interconnection of their employees and branches, for connecting to their
back-end data systems and for performing commercial transactions.
In such an environment new dependencies and risks arise.
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is probably one of the most important items in the arsenal of
security measures that can be brought to bear against the aforementioned growing risks and threats.
Furthermore, Public Key Cryptography (PKC) services and applications make steady inroads into the
various information security solutions needed, providing genuine benefits in selected application areas.

The 7th European Workshop on Public Key Services, Applications and Infrastructures (ΕuroPKI'10) will provide
an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in
the state of the art and the practical aspects of Public Key services, applications and infrastructures.
EuroPKI'10 seeks papers, work-in-progress reports and presentation of applications - services - practical
experiences on topics related, but not limited to:

Anonymity, Applications of PKI &  PKC, Architecture and Modeling, Authentication
Authorization and Delegation, Bridge CA, Case Studies, Certificates Status
Certification Policy and Practices, Credentials, Cross Certification
Cryptanalysis and protocol Weaknesses, Directories, Digital Signatures
Distributed Crypto-Computing, eCommerce / eGovernment, Evaluation
Fault-Tolerance and reliability, Federations, Formal methods
Group signatures, Identification, Identity-Based schemes, Identity Management and eID
Implementations, Interoperability, Key Management, Key Agreement/Establishment
Legal issues, Long-time archiving, Mobile PKI, Multi-Party/Group Protocols
Multi-signatures, Novel Public-key Cryptosystems, Optimization
PKC e-voting schemes, Policies & Regulations, Privacy
Privilege Management, Protocols, Reliability in PKI, Repositories
Risk & attacks, Standards, Threshold Cryptosystems, Timestamping
Trust management, Trusted Computing, Ubiquitous scenarios
Usage Control, Verification, Web services security

Authors are invited to submit original papers not previously published nor submitted in parallel for publication
to any other conference, workshop or journal. All submissions will be blind reviewed by at least three reviewers.
As in previous years it is planned to have post-proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series. All submissions should comply with the "Authors Instructions" that can be found at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html and should not exceed 16 pages including references
(Appendices are not included in the 16-page limit but, in case the paper is accepted for publication,
they will be removed from the camera ready version).
The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references.
It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. Submissions not meeting these guidelines
risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format.
A detailed description of the electronic submission procedure will be available at http://www.ds.unipi.gr/europki10/psub.php

Authors should note that, after the Workshop, a Special Issue of EuroPKI'2010 with extended versions of the best
workshop papers will be published in the Mathematical and Computer Modelling journal, Elsevier.
The papers included in this special issue will undergo another review round.
