Workshop Abstracts

  • Cyber Security Analytics, Intelligence and Automation (Safeconfig)

    The new sophisticated cyber security threats demand new security techniques and approaches that offer proactive, intelligent and a holistic security analytics based on analyzing the system artifacts including system traces, configurations, logs, incident reports, alarms and network traffic. This workshop offers a unique opportunity by bringing together researchers form academic, industry as well as government agencies to discuss these challenges, exchange experiences, and propose joint plans for promoting research and development in this area.

  • Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society (WPES)

    The need for privacy-aware policies, regulations, and techniques has been widely recognized. This workshop discusses the problems of privacy in the global interconnected societies and possible solutions. The 2014 Workshop, held in conjunction with the ACM CCS conference, is the thirteenth in a yearly forum for papers on all the different aspects of privacy in today’s electronic society.

  • Trustworthy Embedded Devices (TrustED)

    This workshop considers selected aspects of cyber physical systems and their environments. It aims at bringing together experts from academia, research institutes, industry and government for discussing and investigating problems, challenges and some recent scientific and technological developments in this field.

  • Workshop on Information Sharing and Collaborative Security (WISCS)

    Sharing of security related information between organizations is believed to greatly enhance their ability to defend themselves against sophisticated attacks. However there are a number of technical and policy challenges for realizing this vision. This workshop aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, industry and government to present innovative research, case studies, as well as legal and policy issues. WISCS plans to address a broad range of topics relevant to sharing security and threat related information.

  • Moving Target Defense (MTD)

    The static nature of current computing systems has made them easy to attack and harder to defend. Adversaries have an asymmetric advantage in that they have the time to study a system, identify its vulnerabilities, and choose the time and place of attack to gain the maximum benefit. The idea of moving-target defense (MTD) is to impose the same asymmetric disadvantage on the attacker by making systems dynamic and harder to predict. This workshop will bring together researchers from academia, government, and industry to report on the latest research efforts on moving-target defense, and to have productive discussion and constructive debate on this topic.
