IWSECC 2019

2nd International Workshop on Security Engineering for Cloud Computing (IWSECC 2019)

to be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2019 – http://www.ares-conference.eu)

August 26 – August 29, 2019, University of Kent, Canterbury, UK

Cloud computing importance and presence in current panorama is apparent, but still some challenges regarding security and privacy are open. 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. This workshop aims to explore techniques that enable security mechanisms to be engineered and implemented in Cloud systems.

We expect to attract over 25 high-quality submissions. Initially, our plan is to accept 8 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.

The technical topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Privacy Engineering
Security Engineering methodologies
Security Patterns
Secure Architecture Evolution
Forensics in Clouds
Security analysis, challenges, goals and risks
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
