First International Workshop on Network Steganography - IWNS 2009
November 18-20, 2009, Wuhan, Hubei, China
co-located with
International Conference on Multimedia Information Networking and
Security (MINES 2009)



Network steganography is part of information hiding focused on modern
networks and is a method of hiding secret data in users' normal data
transmissions, ideally, so it cannot be detected by third parties.
Steganographic techniques arise and evolve with the development of
network protocols and mechanisms, and are expected to used in secret
communication or information sharing. Now, it becomes a hot topic due to
the wide spread of information networks, e.g., multimedia service
networks and social networks. The workshop is dedicated to capture such
areas of research as steganography, steganalysis, and digital forensics
in the meaning of network covert channels, investigate the potential
applications, and discuss the future research topics. Research themes of
workshop will include:

- Steganography and steganalysis
- Covert/subliminal channels
- Novel applications of information hiding in networks
- Political and business issues in network steganography
- Information hiding in multimedia services
- Digital forensics
- Network communication modelling from the viewpoint of steganography
and steganalysis
- New methods for eliminating network steganography


Papers will be accepted based on peer review and should contain
original, high quality work. All papers must be written in English. A
paper should not exceed 5 pages (two columns IEEE format), including
figures and references with 10-12 point font.

Submission page: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mines2009

The papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, available
in the conference (MINES 2009), and indexed by EI Compendex and ISTP.

The extended versions of high-quality papers selected from the workshop
will be published in a special issue of Telecommunication Systems:
Modelling, Analysis, Design and Management by Springer-Verlag GmbH
(indexed by ISI Master Journal List).
