STPSA 2021: The 15th IEEE International Workshop on Security, Trust, and Privacy for Software Applications

In conjunction with COMPSAC 2021 the 45th IEEE Computer Society International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications

Venue: All-Virtual, July 12-16, 2021
Workshop Website: https://ieeecompsac.computer.org/2021/stpsa-security-trust-privacy-for-software-applications/



GOALS

This workshop will bring researchers from academia and industry to discuss methods and tools to achieve security, trust, and privacy goals of both pervasive and pervasive software applications. This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned with respect to the state of art for the security, trust, and privacy aspects of both pervasive and non-pervasive software applications along with some open issues.


THEME

Information security has become a major concern for both pervasive and non-pervasive software applications. Software systems must be engineered with reliable protection mechanisms with respect to security, privacy, and trust, while still delivering the expected value of the software to their customers. The traditional approaches to secure a system (e.g., IDS, firewalls) are no longer sufficient to address many security, trust, and privacy (STP) issues. These issues should be addressed by building more effective STP-aware software applications. The principal obstacle in developing STP-aware software is that current software specification, design, implementation, and testing practices do not include adequate methods and tools to achieve security, trust, and privacy goals.

As most systems now are Internet-based, the number of attackers is increased dramatically and threat scenarios have changed. Traditional security measures do not fit well for the software of pervasive applications. Since location and contexts are key attributes of pervasive applications, the privacy issues need to be handled in a novel manner than traditional software applications. The devices in pervasive computing leave and join in ad hoc manner in the pervasive network. These create a need for new trust models for pervasive computing applications. In this workshop, we will also welcome papers on the challenges and requirements of security, privacy, and trust for pervasive software applications.


SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP

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

• Security, trust, and privacy specific software development practices
• Security, trust, and privacy requirements elicitation and specification
• Models and languages for STP-aware software specification and design
• Architecture for STP-aware software development
• STP challenges for pervasive software applications
• Testing security, trust, and privacy properties of both pervasive and non-pervasive software
• STP management and usability issues in software applications
• User interfaces for STP-aware pervasive and non pervasive software
• Software reengineering for security, trust, and privacy for both pervasive and non pervasive applications
• Tradeoffs among security, privacy, trust, and other criteria
• STP challenges in e-services, e.g. e-health, e-government, e-banking, e-commerce, e-marketing and other web-based and pervasive applications
• STP challenges in mobile software applications
• STP issues in sensor based software applications
• User interfaces for secure and privacy-aware pervasive computing applications
• STP-aware service discovery mechanisms for pervasive computing environments
• Models for ensuring security, trust, and privacy in pervasive software applications
• STP issues for handheld device software applications such as healthcare
• Teaching STP-aware software development
• Experience reports on developing STP-aware software
