*SPIFEC 2017: 1st European Workshop on Security and Privacy in Fog and Edge
Computing *

*(In conjunction with ESORICS 2017)*



Oslo, Norway, September 14-15, 2017

==============================================================================



*Overview*



The main goal of Fog Computing and other related Edge paradigms, such as
Multi-Access Edge Computing, is to decentralize the Cloud and bring some of
its services closer to the edge of the network, where data are generated
and decisions are made. Cloud-enabled edge platforms will be able to
cooperate not only with each other but with the cloud, effectively creating
a collaborative and federated environment. This paradigm shift will fulfill
the needs of novel services, such as augmented reality, that have
particularly stringent requirements like extremely low latency. It will
also help improve the vision of the Internet of Things by improving its
scalability and overall functionality, among other benefits.



To enable this vision, a number of platforms and technologies need to
securely coexist, including sensors and actuators, edge-deployed systems,
software-defined networks, hardware virtualization, data mining mechanisms,
etc. However, this paradigm shift calls for new security challenges and
opportunities to leverage services for new scenarios and applications. The
field of edge computing security is almost unexplored, and demands further
attention from the research community and industry in order to unleash the
full potential of this paradigm.
