Call For Papers

Call for papers: First International Workshop on Agile Development of
Secure Software (ASSD’15)
to be held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES'15)

Université Paul Sabatier
Toulouse, France

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2015 (Extended to 22/4/2015)

Most organizations use the agile software development methods, such as
Scrum and XP for developing their software. Agile software development
methods are not well aligned with the traditional security-related
development activities that were developed with waterfall in mind; they
allow change of requirements,prefer frequent deliveries, use lightweight
documentation, and their practices do not include security engineering
activities. These characteristics limit their use for developing secure
software. For instance, they do not consider conflicting security
requirements that emerge in different iterations.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together security and software
development researchers to share their finding, experiences, and
positions about developing secure software using the agile methods. The
workshop aims to encourage the use of scientific methods to investigate
the challenges related to the use of the agile approach to develop
secure software. It aims also to increase the communication between
security researchers and software development researchers to enable the
development of techniques and best practices for developing secure
software using the agile methods.

Topics of interest
The list of topics that are relevant to the ASSD workshop includes the
following, but is not limited to:
• Challenges for agile development of secure software
• Processes for agile development of secure software
• Incremental development of cyber-physical systems
• Secure software development training and education
• Tools supporting incremental secure software development
• Usability of agile secure software development
• Security awareness for software developers
• Security metrics for agile development
• Security and robustness testing in agile development
