PureVPN is proud to join forces with the i2Coalition's VPN Trust Initiative.

PureVPN, a prominent provider of VPN services under the umbrella of PureSquare, has demonstrated its commitment to users by renewing its membership with the i2Coalition's VPN Trust Initiative (VTI). This action holds significant meaning as it showcases our dedication to users worldwide.

In today's ever-changing digital landscape, cyber threats, data breaches, and unauthorized surveillance have become increasingly prevalent. Unfortunately, many corporations disregard user security and privacy, leaving internet users with no choice but to navigate and adapt to invasive policies. 

By actively participating in this initiative, PureVPN has highlighted its dedication to strengthening online security and fostering digital trust. This not only showcases our commitment to safeguarding user privacy but also underscores our role as an organization that genuinely prioritizes confidentiality.

So, what exactly are the i2Coalition and the VPN Trust Initiative?

The i2Coalition was established during a period when US legislators were considering bills (SOPA and PIPA) that could have had negative implications for the online world. Their main objective is to ensure that those who construct the infrastructure of the Internet have a say in shaping public policy. 

They accomplish this by:

1. Ensuring an equal and accessible internet for all. 

2. Assisting lawmakers and legislators in understanding how internet infrastructure functions. 

3. Advocating for reasonable policies that contribute to the growth of the internet, rather than its decline.

4. Ensuring fair treatment of laws related to the internet. 

The VPN Trust Initiative is an initiative by the i2Coalition aimed at raising the standards of the VPN industry. It brings together trusted VPN leaders, leveraging their combined knowledge to establish policies focused on "building understanding, strengthening trust, and mitigating risk for VPN users."

What does PureVPN's involvement mean for VPN users?

PureVPN's inclusion in the i2Coalition's VPN Trust Initiative has significant implications for its users worldwide. Here is what it means:

1. Trust and collaboration: The company's alignment with the VPN Trust Initiative's objective reflects its commitment to transparency. This shared focus fosters trust between the online users and the VPN service. 

2. Global excellence: With its expertise in data security and involvement in the VPN Trust Initiative, PureVPN enhances VPN practices globally.

3. Unified security: PureVPN collaborates with other leading VPN providers in the initiative, working together to secure the future of online privacy. This collective effort prioritizes user's interests in policy and industry advancements.

eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, and formatted using the IEEE conference template, which can be found at:


Submissions should be anonymized, excluding author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. Authors' own work should be referred to in the third person.

Paper should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, excluding the bibliography and appendices.

Committee members are not required to read appendices, so ensure that the main paper is intelligible without them.

Submitted papers that do not adhere to all the above guidelines may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Authors of accepted papers must present them and register at the event.

For paper submissions, use the New Submission option at: https://ecrime2023papers.hotcrp.com/

Authors will be asked to indicate whether they would like their submissions to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award. Any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. We understand that some authors may face difficulties in obtaining funding to attend the conference. Therefore, a limited number of stipends are available for those who are unable to secure funding. Students who will present their accepted papers themselves will be given priority in receiving such assistance.

Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore's scope and quality requirements.

NOTE: This year's eCrime program marks 20 years since APWG's founding. Originally organized by a coalition of banks, technology companies and US federal police agencies, investigating the then-new threat of phishing, APWG has evolved into a global coalition of cybercrime experts spanning the globe from a number of industries, research disciplines and public-sector entities, from key nation-states to global multilateral organizations.
