Call For Papers

*The International Workshop on Designing and Measuring CyberSecurity in
Software Architecture (DeMeSSA 2019)*
9-10 September 2019, Paris, France

Part of the 13th European Conference on Software Architecture (ECSA),

* PROCEEDINGS: ACM International Conference Proceedings Series


Submission deadline: May 31, 2019
Notification to authors: June 26, 2019
Camera-ready papers: July 5, 2019
Workshop at ECSA 2019: September 9-10, 2019


With the growing complexity of software and in particular of
software-reliant systems and systems-of-systems, the focus of
cybersecurity on network and code has been increasingly shifted to
design and more recently to “cybersecurity by design” or “design for
cybersecurity”, where the software architecture is the keystone for
enforcing cybersecurity. Early evidence of cyber risks, attacks and
vulnerabilities enables efficient and effective cybersecurity solutions.
Security measurement of software architectures is needed to produce
sufficient evidence of cybersecurity level in the design phase.
Moreover, software architectures have to support runtime security
measurement to obtain up-to-date cybersecurity information. This is
essential for self-protecting systems and self-adaptive cybersecurity

This International Workshop on Designing and Measuring CyberSecurity in
Software Architecture (DeMeSSA 2019) at ECSA 2019, will provide
researchers and practitioners with a forum to exchange ideas and
experiences, analyze research and development issues, discuss promising
solutions, and propose inspiring visions for the future in complementary
fields of Cybersecurity from the perspective of the Software
Architecture: Designing CyberSecurity in Software Architecture and
Measuring CyberSecurity in Software Architecture Design.

It is worth noting that the DeMeSSA workshop succeeds the MeSSA
workshop,, organized
since 2010, by extending its scope.


DeMeSSA 2019 fosters (but is not limited to) submissions in the
following topics:

*Measuring Cybersecurity in Software Architecture*

Metrics and measurement approaches
- Security, trust and privacy metrics
- Measurement systems and associated data gathering
- Measurability-increasing mechanisms for software architectures
- Security trade-off analysis
- Assurance and re-assurance methods
- Runtime security measurements
- Evolutionary techniques

Metrics applications
- Adaptive and cognitive security
- Artificial Intelligence security
- Cloud security solutions
- Internet of Things security
- Situational awareness and threat intelligence
- Architecture-based self-protecting systems
- 5G and Software Defined Networks
- Forensics and data analytics
- Visualization approaches for security measurements
- Empirical case studies and experimental results from security measurements

*Designing Cybersecurity in Software Architecture*

Security architecture techniques
- Architecture Risk Management
- Security-Driven Architecture
- Design Patterns Driven Security
- Enforcing Security from Architectural Designs to Implementation Artefacts

Model-based techniques for secure software architectures
- Secure Architecture Modeling
- Attack and Intrusion Modeling
- Defense Modeling
- Vulnerability Modeling
- Adaptive Security Modeling
- Model-based Security Frameworks

Relation of Security with other Extra-Functional Properties
- Safety & Security by Architectural Design
- Dependability & Security by Architectural Design
- Reliability & Security by Architectural Design
- Interdependencies and Trade-offs at Architectural Design

Security by Architectural Design in Different Kinds of Systems: Critical
Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, Systems of Systems, Cloud Computing,
Internet of Things

Future Perspectives, Challenges and Roadmaps on Security by
Architectural Design


DeMeSSa 2019 invites two kinds of submissions:

- Regular papers that describe novel contributions to the
state-of-the-art, reporting on work or experiences in industry or
industrial-relevant case or field studies (up to 7 pages)

- Work-in-progress papers that describe promising preliminary results,
approaches, ideas, or challenging issues for application in the industry
(up to 4 pages)

Papers must be written in English and comply with the ACM Master Article
Template for Proceedings:

All papers submitted to the workshop must be unpublished original work
and must not be simultaneously under review or submitted elsewhere. All
submissions will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the program
committee for originality, quality, and relevance.

Submissions must be uploaded in PDF through the submission website
hosted by EasyChair:

All accepted papers will be published in the ECSA 2019 Companion
Proceedings by ACM's International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS).

At least one author is required to register for the workshop and to
present the paper.
