With the advancement of "Internet plus" on all fronts, many
traditional industries gradually step into a great era of
digitization, cyberization, mobilization and intellectualization.
However, the explosive growth of data and information in those
processes brings serious challenges to cyberspace security. Meanwhile,
the emergence of innovative network computing paradigms, such as cloud
computing, IoT (Internet of Things), big data, mobile and wireless
networks, lead to a lot of information security issues, which are
neglected, unknown, or unable to handle for existing security
solutions. Cyberspace has become the fifth national sovereign space
besides the traditional four domains of land, sea, air, and aerospace.
Cyberspace has become a new battlefield of security among nations.

As a product of interdisciplinary integration, cyberspace security
mainly involves four layers, i.e., devices, systems, data and
applications. However, existing technologies usually deal with each
layer independently, and apply theories in trusted computing,
cryptography and information countermeasures to solve specific
security issues. However, as a complex problem, cyberspace security
should be analyzed from different layers and multiple perspectives
comprehensively. An overall theoretical system with methods combining
qualitative computation and quantitative analysis should be built in
order to ensure cyberspace security under prospective network
computing environments from all aspects.

The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Cyberspace Security (IWCSS
2018) will be held in Guangzhou, China, October 8-12, 2018, in
conjunction with the 15th IEEE International Conference on Advanced
and Trusted Computing (ATC 2018). Experts and scholars from
educational organizations, scientific research institutions and
well-known companies nationwide and overseas will be invited to attend
this workshop, to discuss the state-of-the-art challenges and future
directions of cyberspace security. It will provide a communication
platform for us to demonstrate novel ideas and to learn from each

IEEE IWCSS 2018 focuses on trust, security, privacy, safety,
anonymity, forensics, fault tolerance, reliability, dependability, and
availability for cyberspace devices, systems, data and applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

- Cyberspace Trust
- Cyberspace Security
- Cyberspace Privacy
- Cyberspace Safety
- Cyberspace Anonymity
- Cyberspace Forensics
- Cyberspace Fault Tolerance
- Cyberspace Reliability
- Cyberspace Dependability
- Cyberspace Availability
