IWSSC 2011 : First International Workshop on Securing Services on the Cloud


When Sep 6, 2011 - Sep 8, 2011
Where Milan, Italy
Submission Deadline Jun 8, 2011
Notification Due Jul 11, 2011
Final Version Due Jul 21, 2011

Call For Papers

Held in conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Network and
System Security (NSS 2011)
September 6-8, 2011, Milan, Italy -

The ongoing merge between Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and
the Cloud computation paradigm provides a new environment fostering
the integration of services located within company boundaries with
those on the Cloud. An increasing number of organizations implement
their business processes and applications via runtime composition of
services made available on the Cloud by external suppliers. This
scenario is changing the traditional view of security introducing
new service security risks and threats, and requires re-thinking of
current development, testing, and verification methodologies.
IWSSC 2011 aims to address the security issues related to the
deployment of services on the Cloud, along with evaluating their
impact on traditional security solutions for software and network

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting
novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security
of services implemented on the Cloud, as well as experimental studies
in Cloud infrastructures, the implementation of services, and lessons
learned. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Security in Cloud services
* Software verification in critical services
* Static code analysis of software services
* Test-based verification of services
* Authentication and access control on the Cloud
* Challenges in moving critical systems to the Cloud
* Cybercrime and cyberterrorism on the Cloud
* Communication confidentiality and integrity
* Data security and privacy on the Cloud
* Formal methods for the Cloud
* Homeland security
* Information assurance and trust management
* Intrusion detection on the Cloud
* Model-based validation of services
* Orchestration and choreography
* RESTful service security
* SOAP security
* Security certification of services
* Security metrics on the Cloud
* Security models and architectures
* Security patterns for the Cloud
* Security protocols on the Cloud
