*** Fourth Annual Industrial Control System Security (ICSS) Workshop ***

The fourth annual Industrial Control System Security Workshop (ICSS) will
be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tuesday, December 4, 2018, in conjunction
with the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference (ACSAC). ACSAC
will be held at the Condado Plaza Hilton, San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control
systems monitor and control a wide range of industrial and infrastructure
processes such as water treatment, power generation and transmission, oil
and gas refining and steel manufacturing. Such systems are usually built
using a variety of commodity computer and networking components and are
becoming increasingly interconnected with corporate and other
Internet-visible networks.  As a result, they face significant threats from
internal and external actors. For example, in 2010 the Stuxnet malware was
specifically written to attack SCADA systems and caused millions of dollars
in damages.

The critical requirement for high availability in SCADA and industrial
control systems, along with the use of resource-constrained computing
devices, legacy operating systems, and proprietary software applications
limits the applicability of traditional information security solutions. The
goal of this workshop is to explore new offensive and defensive techniques
that are applicable in the control systems context. Papers of interest
including (but not limited to) the following subject categories are
• Intrusion detection and prevention
• Malware
• Vulnerability analysis and risk management
• Digital forensics
• Virtualization
• Application security
• Performance evaluation of security methods and tools in control systems
• Cybersecurity Education

Submissions should be 5-8 pages, using the double-column ACM proceedings
format, using the new ACM 2017 acmart template available at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates, using the
[sigconf, anonymous] options. Submissions should not use older ACM
templates (e.g., sig-alternate). If you encounter any problems with the
acmart template, please contact acmtexsupport at aptaracorp.com. You can also
report problems with the template to https://github.com/
borisveytsman/acmart/issues so that they are reviewed by SIG volunteers.

All submissions must be anonymous. Submission website is at
The accepted workshop papers will be published by ACM. The slides will be
published on the ACSAC website.
