DIMACS Workshop on Security of Web Services and E-Commerce

May 5 - 6, 2005
  DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

Organizer:
  Brian LaMacchia, Microsoft, bal@microsoft.com

Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on Communication
Security and Information Privacy.

********************************************************************

The growth of Web Services, and in particular electronic commerce
activities based on them, is quickly being followed by work on Web
Services security protocols.  While core XML security standards like
XMLDSIG, XMLENC and WS-Security have been completed, they only
provide the basic building blocks of authentication, integrity
protection and confidentiality for Web Services.  Additional Web
Services standards and protocols are required to provide
higher-order operations such as trust management, delegation, and
federation.  At the same time, the sharp rise in "phishing" attacks
and other forms of on-line fraud simply confirms that all our work
on security protocols is for naught if we cannot make it both
possible and easy for the average user to discover when a security
property has failed during a transaction.  This workshop aims to
explore these areas as well as other current and future security and
privacy challenges for Web Services applications and e-commerce.

********************************************************************

Call for Participation:

The workshop will be open to the public (no submission is necessary
to attend). If you'd like to give a presentation please send a title
and abstract to "commerce2005@farcaster.com" by January 17, 2005.
Submissions may describe ongoing or planned work related to the
security of Web Services and electronic commerce, or they may
discuss important research problems or propose a research agenda in
this area. Also, we intend this to be a participatory and
interactive meeting so we hope you will be able to contribute to the
meeting even without giving an announced talk.
