Scope

CARDIS has been the venue for security experts from industry and academia to exchange on security of smart cards and related applications since 1994. Smart cards play an increasingly important role in our day-to-day life through their use in banking cards, SIM cards, electronic passports, and IoT devices. It is thus naturally of utmost importance to understand their security features and to develop sound protocols and countermeasures while keeping reasonable performance. In this respect, CARDIS aims to gather security experts from industry, academia, and standardization bodies to make steps forward in the field of embedded security.

The 19th edition of CARDIS is organized by the Institute for IT Security of the Universität zu Lübeck, Germany. The conference website is accessible at https://cardis2020.its.uni-luebeck.de

Topics

The program committee is seeking original papers on the design, development, deployment, evaluation, penetration testing and application of smart cards and secure embedded systems. Submissions across a broad range of the development phase are encouraged, from exploratory research and proof of-concept studies to practical applications and deployment.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
