Call For Papers

The 6th International CARO Workshop will be held on the 14th and 15th of May 2012 at the München Airport Sheraton in Schwaig-Oberding, Germany.

The main theme of the conference will be "WWWTF - The Web: It’s broken, but can it be fixed?".

Please remember this is a technical workshop, so we will focus on the technical aspects of the problem. The sessions are closed to the media and there is a strict no recording policy enforced. The organizers reserve the right to reject participants and speakers if their affiliation cannot be verified as trustworthy.


CARO was founded on the principle of exchanging information with trusted partners, so as usual, we are soliciting any papers concerning this topic. This year, the focus of the workshop will be the Web. Topics can include:
Vulnerabilities; XSS, CSRF; TLS and Certificate Authorities; SSO security issues (SAML, OAuth, …); WebSockets; WebServices security (SOAP, REST, …); Active Web content security (JavaScript, ActiveX, Flash, …); Mashup security
Content markup/DOM vulnerabilities (HTML5, Microformats, RFDa, …); Attacks; Webinject attacks; Code Insertion; Man in the Browser attacks; Mitigation to all of the above

There will be ~14 full presentations, each 45 minutes long, as well as ~7 lightning talks each 5 minutes long. The lightning talks cover the same subjects and are expected to provide a poster to be manned during the following break so that questions can be asked.

Submission Details

Extended abstracts are due on Friday the 15th of January, 2012. Abstracts should be between 200 and 500 words in length and should be detailed enough to judge the content of the final presentation.
Please indicate on the submission form if you will be doing a demo that requires Internet access. If there is enough demand, we will try to supply a dedicated Ethernet drop for the speaker.
If accepted, at least one author must be registered to speak as we will not accept proxies.
There is no obligation to submit a final paper or the presentation slides, but if the authors wish to, the papers and presentation will be posted on the CARO Workshop site.
There will be the opportunity to submit lightning talk abstracts at a later date, but keep in mind that these do not qualify for reduced registration fees.
The submissions page will be announced in December 2011.
