TSCloud 2012 : The 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Trust and Security in Cloud Computing
Call For Papers
Following the success of IEEE TSCloud 2011, the IEEE TSCloud 2012 Symposium brings together researchers with an interest in theoretical foundations and practical approaches to trust and security in cloud computing. The emphasis is on high-impact, novel/adopted theories and paradigms that address mathematical and logical underpinnings in trust and security in cloud computing, e.g. encryption, obfuscation, virtualisation security, governance, accountability, etc.
This year’s theme is on "Transparency and Accountability for the Cloud".
While several techniques exist for the protection and security of the cloud, there is currently a lack of techniques for achieving accountability for the cloud via logging and achieving transparency of data and information provenance.
Topics of interest for both main and demo tracks include, but are not limited to:
•Malware detection in cloud computing
•Cryptography and encryption techniques for cloud computing •Data obfuscation for cloud computing •Accountability in cloud computing •Identity management in cloud computing •Account and Domain management in cloud computing •Security in virtualized environments •Governance, regulation and compliance in cloud computing •Data analytics for security in cloud computing •Visualization for security in cloud computing •Cloud computing threat detection techniques •Trust in cloud services •Trust reputation systems for cloud computing •Reports on critical, real-life security and trust use cases in cloud computing •Secure and trusted workflows in cloud computing •Techniques preventing the nefarious use of cloud computing •Cloud data leakage and data loss •Position papers on issues in security and trust in cloud computing
