International Workshop on Model-Based and Policy-Based Engineering
in Information Security. Co-located with ICETE 2011
Seville, Spain, 20 July, 2011.

* Authors Notification: May 13, 2011 (extended) *
* Final Paper Submission and Registration: May 11, 2011 *


Nowadays, IT Security is one of the top priorities for
companies all over the world, as the increasing investment in security
during the last years indicates. However, security-related
technologies, such as Firewalls, IDS and Anti-virus systems are being
configured and deployed today as it has been done over the last three
decades. On the contrary, size, complexity, heterogeneity, and speed
of changes have been increasing during the same period. Security
aspects in most companies are, moreover, being incorporated into
software systems as an add-on at the later stages of the development
process. This implies that part of the investment in security is a
waste of money. Future systems must be able to be designed from
higher-level, platform-agnostic models. These models may also be
diagnosed and corrected during early design stages to cut design and
development costs and to assure some quality properties. These systems
must be capable to react to internal or external events and
reconfigure themselves to comply with their models.

This workshop is an international forum on how to address these
complexity-related issues in information security systems within
Model-based and Policy-based Engineering paradigms. It aims at
merging both communities, the first one strongly related with
Software Engineering, and the second one tightly related with
Network Security. The workshop will try to bring together people
from both academia and industry, from all the different areas
that want to/might play an active role in domains of both
modeling and security to discuss problems, highlight possible
solutions, disseminate success stories and also draft a possible
research agenda.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Model-Based Engineering in policy-based systems
* Platform-independent and platform-specific models
* Domain-specific modeling languages
* Models of security properties and security systems
* Validation and testing of model faults
* Verification/Behavior analysis of deployed systems
* Interoperability between security models
* Security tools based on models
* Design patterns for security
* Secure and trustworthy policy management, deployment and enforcement
* Security policy standards, extensions and refinements
* Usability of security policy languages and representations
* Policy visualization
* Case studies of applying policy-based management in different domains
* Autonomous (self-*) systems

*Paper Submissions Guidelines*
Prospective authors are invited to
submit papers in any of the topics listed above. Instructions for
preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex formats) are available at

Please also check the Submission Guidelines at\_guidelines.asp

Papers should be submitted electronically via the web-based submission
system at

All papers should be submitted in English language. The
paper selection will be based upon the relevance of a paper to the
main topics, on its originality, on its soundness, on its scientific
quality and on the potential to stimulate discussion in the workshop.
Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are
encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
Mainly theoretical papers are discouraged, specially if they do not
address a real problem or has real-world examples.
