IWSECC 2018

International Workshop on Security Engineering for Cloud Computing (IWSECC 2018)

to be held in conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2018 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 27 – August 30, 2018, Hamburg, Germany

The use of cloud computing grows exponentially and security and privacy are requirements are essential to preserve. The application of software engineering to Cloud computing is a primary aspect to obtain a systematic approach to the development, operation and maintenance of software. There is no perfect security and when a cybersecurity incident occurs, digital investigation will require the identification, preservation and analysis of evidential data. Today exists the necessity to examine and propose security solutions for cloud computing in order to improve the quality and security of all services, applications, tools based and architectures based on cloud computing. This workshop is dedicated to explore techniques that enable security mechanisms to be engineered and implemented in Cloud-based systems.

Tentative size and length of the proposed workshop
We expect to attract over 40 high-quality submissions. Initially, our plan is to accept 10 full papers and 4 short papers, but this of course will depend on the received submissions. Therefore, the acceptance rate for full papers will be below 25%, while for full+short papers it could reach 30%. This number of accepted papers, together with a keynote talk and a final joint discussion session will fit in one full day.

Implementation Plan
IWSECC will have a hybrid approach that will combine a traditional scientific workshop with an interactive forum for discussion of the main workshop topics, seeking the creation of a community and a clear focus on producing tangible results and making an impact on the situation of web service security and assurance.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Privacy Engineering
  • Security Engineering methodologies
  • Privacy & Security by Design
  • Privacy & Security Monitoring Architecture
  • Secure Architecture Evolution
  • Agile Software Development
  • Security analysis, challenges, goals and risks
  • Security Patterns
  • Security Engineering Theory and Practice
  • Distributed authentication and authentication
  • Real time analysis of security (log) data for alert generation
  • Remote collection of evidence (e.g. from cloud servers)
  • Fog Computing Security & Privacy
