IWSSC 2011


Held in conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Network and 

System Security (NSS 2011)

September 6-8, 2011, Milan, Italy - http://sesar.dti.unimi.it/iwssc2011



The ongoing merge between Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and 

the Cloud computation paradigm provides a new environment fostering 

the integration of services located within company boundaries with

those on the Cloud. An increasing number of organizations implement 

their business processes and applications via runtime composition of 

services made available on the Cloud by external suppliers. This 

scenario is changing the traditional view of security introducing 

new service security risks and threats, and requires re-thinking of 

current development, testing, and verification methodologies. 

IWSSC 2011 aims to address the security issues related to the 

deployment of services on the Cloud, along with evaluating their 

impact on traditional security solutions for software and network 



The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting 

novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security 

of services implemented on the Cloud, as well as experimental studies 

in Cloud infrastructures, the implementation of services, and lessons 

learned. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:  


* Security in Cloud services 

* Software verification in critical services

* Static code analysis of software services

* Test-based verification of services

* Authentication and access control on the Cloud

* Challenges in moving critical systems to the Cloud

* Cybercrime and cyberterrorism on the Cloud

* Communication confidentiality and integrity

* Data security and privacy on the Cloud

* Formal methods for the Cloud

* Homeland security

* Information assurance and trust management 

* Intrusion detection on the Cloud

* Model-based validation of services

* Orchestration and choreography

* RESTful service security

* SOAP security

* Security certification of services

* Security metrics on the Cloud

* Security models and architectures

* Security patterns for the Cloud

* Security protocols on the Cloud



Paper submission due: June 1, 2011 (midnight Samoa time)

Notification to authors: July 11, 2011 

Camera-ready due: July 21, 2011
