MidCCI 2015: 1st IEEE International Workshop on Middleware for Cyber Security, Cloud Computing and Internetworking
In Conjunction with COMPSAC 2015,
Taichung, Taiwan - July 1-5, 2015
MidCCI aims to share experiences of developing and managing middleware from both technical and policy aspects. It aims to bring together application developers and middleware and security experts to identify areas of overlap and best practice so that the development of solutions can be simple and ideally modular in nature, to ensure applications can be developed quickly and easily whilst conforming to middleware and security standards.
This workshop started as the Middleware Architecture in the Internet (MidArch) workshop in 2007. After holding the 8th workshop, co-located with COMPSAC 2014, it was decided to change the workshop name as Middleware for Cyber Security, Cloud Computing and Internetworking (MidCCI), considering the change in situation surrounding Internet middleware. This workshop carries over the aims from the past MidArch workshops.
Middleware is a layer of software that acts as glue between applications and the Internet. Although it is somehow difficult to define what middleware is (see RFC2768), it provides fundamental services in various situations, such as authentication, authorization, accounting, directories, resource management, information discovery and retrieval, and security. Middleware solutions are starting to mature with a number of frameworks emerging that should ideally make use of common reusable components and tools to deliver specific middleware services for communities such as researchers in GRID/cloud communities, and teaching and learning in higher education.
In addition to technical and policy aspects of middleware development and management, papers on system development and experiences are also welcome. When such a paper is submitted, please include "Implementation" or "Experiences" in the keyword list of the paper.
- The scope of MidCCI includes but is not limited to:
Authentication, authorization, accounting and access management
Single sign on for Web services and non-web applications
Federations & trust fabrics (technologies and policies)
Wireless network roaming architectures
DNS and directory services
Hypervisor (VMware, Xen, KVM, ...)
Cloud computing platform (OpenStack, CloudStack, ...)
Frameworks for distributed processing (Hadoop, Jubatus, ...)
Middleware for SDN and NFV (Open vSwitch, OpenFlow Controllers, ...)
Middleware for Information-Centric Networking
Middleware for overlay networking
Network simulators and emulators
Countermeasures against Advanced Attacks
E-mail digital signature and encryption (S/MIME, PGP, etc.)
PKI deployment issues
Big data/Cloud/GRID access control and privacy protection
Implementation/Experiences of middleware.
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other publications and conferences are not permitted.
The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Proceedings style) with up to 2 additional pages (with charges for each additional page) printed on 10-12 point fonts.
Authors must follow IEEE CS Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare papers. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person.
