Data privacy in emerging computing scenarios
The advances in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have brought to the rapid diffusion of novel computing paradigms (e.g., data outsourcing, cloud computing, social networking applications) characterized by new ways of processing, storing, communicating, sharing, and disseminating information. Although these paradigms present benefits in terms of data management and availability, the side effect is a tremendous exposure of private and sensitive information to privacy breaches. In this talk, I will illustrate different issues related to the problem of protecting privacy in emerging scenarios, and describe some recent solutions and research directions.

Lightweight cryptography: opportunities and challenges
Applications of RFID systems are in constant growth and the pervasiveness of the devices raises numerous privacy issues. Hence, the need for privacy-preserving RFID protocols is becoming more evident even in the extremely resourceless environments. In addition, smart devices such as phones and smart cards are already omnipresent in our lives and used for payments, access control etc.
As most mobile phones are expected to use NFC in the near future the importance of the technology is growing. In this talk we give an overview of the issues related to the applications of lightweight cryptography. We describe ECC-based privacy-friendly protocols for RFID tags and their realizations i.e. hardware requirements. We also discuss some recent work on mobile payments for which users need only their NFC-enabled mobile phones and credentials implemented on their smart cards.
