Call for Submissions

Special Issue of the
Journal of Universal Computer Science
on ADVANCED RESEARCH ON SOFTWARE SECURITY DESIGN AND APPLICATIONS

Main submission deadline: November 26th, 2015

http://www.jucs.org/ujs/jucs/info/special_issues/in_preparation.html

SCOPE AND AIM
The main mission of this special issue “Advanced Research on Software 
Security Design and Applications” is to be the premier and authoritative 
source for the most innovative scholarly and professional research and 
information pertaining to aspects of Software Security. Such issue 
presents advancements in the state-of-the-art, standards, and practices 
of software security, in an effort to identify emerging trends that will 
ultimately define the future of “the software security.”
This special issue focuses on advanced research in the practical 
applications and the theoretical foundations of software security, 
through presentation of the most up-to-date advances and new directions 
of research in the field from various scholarly, professional, and 
practitioner perspectives. An interdisciplinary look at software 
security including engineering and business aspects, such issue covers 
and encourages high-quality research exposition.
This issue will explore the foundations of software security. The 
important software vulnerabilities and attacks will be considered that 
exploit them -- such as buffer overflows, SQL injection, and session 
hijacking -- and defenses will be also considered that prevent or 
mitigate these attacks, including advanced testing and program analysis 
techniques. Importantly, we take a "build security in" mentality, 
considering techniques at each phase of the development cycle that can 
be used to strengthen the security of software systems. The objective of 
this special issue is to capture the latest advances in this research 
field. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the ones listed 
below:
- Penetration testing
- Software Security Technologies & services
- Software Security Applications
- Software Security Architecture
- Software Security Patterns
- Software Security Standard
- Built-in security
- Low-level, memory-based attacks
- User data protection.
