Dear all,

due to the overlap with NDSS, we postponed the deadline extension of SecWeb
from February 28th to March 6th. Please find below the Call for Papers and
jump to https://secweb.work for full information. We look forward to your
contributions on how to make the Web more secure by design!

1st Workshop on Designing Security for the Web (SecWeb 2020)
co-located with IEEE EuroS&P 2020

Department of Economics (DIEC) of the University of Genova, Genova, Italy

June 19th, 2020



Back in the days, the Web was not designed with security or privacy in
mind. Many key mechanisms we rely on today for critical functionality were
arguably not designed for security (such as cookies for authentication
purposes) and numerous mechanisms have been piecemeal retrofitted to the Web to
add security to it. In this workshop, we want to move away from augmenting
the Web with Security and rather design Security for the Web.



Paper submissions due: February 28, 2020

Notification to authors: April 9, 2020

Camera-ready due for accepted submissions: April 24, 2020



All papers discussing Web security and Web privacy aspects are solicited
for submission. SecWeb particularly welcomes position papers which propose
provocative thoughts on how (parts of) the current Web platform could be
heavily re-envisioned for security. This explicitly includes proposals that
would break today’s Web to improve its security tomorrow.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Browser security
Formal methods for Web security
Language-based Web security
Security policies for the Web
Usable Web security
Web application firewalls
Web attacks and defenses
Web authentication and authorization
Web protocol security
Web security architectures
Web tracking and online advertisement


SecWeb solicits both full and short papers. All papers must be written in
English and must not exceed 10 pages (full) and 6 pages (short) in A4
format using the IEEE conference proceeding template (excluding
bibliography and well-marked appendixes). Submissions must be in PDF format
and should print easily on simple default configurations. Submissions are
anonymous, so information that might identify the authors must be excluded.
It is the authors' responsibility to ensure that their anonymity is
preserved when citing their own work. Failures to adhere to these
requirements can be grounds for rejection.

The proceedings will be published by the IEEE after the workshop and will
be made available in IEEE Xplore. During submission, authors can choose to
have their paper excluded from the proceedings. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register to the workshop for presentation.

All submissions considered for inclusion in the proceedings must contain an
original contribution. That is, these papers must not substantially overlap
papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a
journal, conference or workshop. In particular, simultaneous submission of
the same work is not
allowed. This requirement is relaxed for submissions which will not be
included in the proceedings: in particular, we also invite papers that are
currently under submission or planned to be submitted before the SecWeb
