The computer security conference Rooted CON born with the purpose of promoting the exchange of knowledge among members of the security community, particularly vindicating the enormous capacity of the Spanish – speaking professionals. One of the first premise was to maintain rigidly the principle of neutrality that has characterized each of its editions. In Rooted CON, members of the security community, students, professionals, businesses, amateurs, state forces, hackers and, why not, artists and academics could and can speak and present their ideas. Another premise is to avoid censorship . While adhering to the limits of legality, the contents will never be censored and presented with the necessary professionalism and rigor; We know that our speakers are serious professionals, whose contents deserve to be treated with all due respect. And, of course, two premises that are actually the same: promoting technical knowledge and ensure that, at all times, have fun and enjoyment in an atmosphere of animation and exchange.

The wide diffusion of embedded systems, including multi-core, many-core, and reconfigurable platforms, poses a number of challenges related to the security of the operation of such systems, as well as of the information stored in them.
Malicious adversaries can leverage unprotected communication to hijack cyber-physical systems, resulting in incorrect and potentially highly dangerous behaviours, or can exploit side channel information leakage to recover secret information from a computing system. Untrustworthy third party software and hardware can create openings for such attacks, which must be detected and removed or countered. The prevalence of multi/many core systems opens additional issues such as NoC security. Finally, the complexity on modern and future embedded and mobile systems leads to the need to depart from manual planning and deployment of security features. Thus, design automation tools will be needed to design and verify the security features of new hardware/software systems.
The workshop is a venue for security and cryptography experts to interact with the computer architecture and compilers community, aiming at cross-fertilization and multi-disciplinary approaches to security in computing systems.
Never has security been more in the news. Companies around the world know that they are going to have to prioritise identity and privacy within systems designs and processes, to ensure customers and clients are protected more than ever.
While laws like the GDPR give us guidelines and recommendations on best practices for data collection and storage, you need look no further than the Security, Identity, and Privacy Miniconf to level up your skills with talks and practical advice from professionals and thought leaders.
