Seventh International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering (SecSE 2013)

Seventh International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering (SecSE 2013)

Regensburg, Germany, September 3, 2013
In conjunction with ARES 2013

Call for Papers

Software is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to
function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach
of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion
detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in
these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We
need to be able to build better, more robust and more “inherently” secure
systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software
systems, not just in the ones that “obviously” need special protection.

This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for
engineering secure and dependable software.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
– Secure architecture and design
– Security in agile software development
– Aspect-oriented software development for secure software
– Security requirements
– Risk management in software projects
– Secure implementation
– Secure deployment
– Testing for security
– Quantitative measurement of security properties
– Static and dynamic analysis for security
– Verification and assurance techniques for security properties
– Security and usability
– Design and deployment of secure services
– Secure composition and adaptation of services
– Teaching secure software development
– Lessons learned
– Experience reports on successfully attuning developers to secure software
