GraMSec 2015
The Second International Workshop on Graphical Models for Security
July 13, 2015, Verona, Italy
Co-located with CSF 2015

Graphical security models provide an intuitive but systematic
methodology to analyze security weaknesses of systems and to evaluate
potential protection measures. Formal methods and computer security
researchers, as well as security professionals from industry and
government, have proposed various graphical security modeling schemes.
Such models are used to capture different security facets (digital,
physical, and social) and address a range of challenges including
security assessment, risk analysis, automated defensing, secure
services composition, policy validation and verification. The
objective of GraMSec is to contribute to the development of
well-founded graphical security models, efficient algorithms for their
analysis, as well as methodologies for their practical usage.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of
graphical models for security. The topics of the workshop include, but
are not limited to:
- Attack trees, attack graphs, and their variants
- Petri nets, Markov chains, and Bayesian networks for security
- UML-based models and other graphical modeling approaches for security
- Enhancement and/or optimization of existing graphical security models
- Methods for (semi-)automatic generation of graphical security models
- Scalability of graphical security models
- Software tools for graphical security modeling and analysis
- Risk assessment and risk management using graphical security models
- Methods for quantitative analysis of graphical security models
- Formal semantics of graphical security models
- Formal verification of graphical security models
- Game theoretical approaches to graphical security models
- Visualization of system security
- Visual security modeling and analysis of socio-technical and cyber-physical systems
- Graphical models for system, organizational, and business security
- Graphical security models for emerging paradigms (e.g., Cloud computing, IoT, Software Defined Networks, Big Data)
- Case studies and experience reports on the use of graphical security models

We solicit two types of submissions:
- Regular papers (up to 15 pages) describing original and unpublished
work within the scope of the workshop.
- Tool papers (up to 5 pages) describing software supporting graphical
security modeling, analysis, and evaluation. Tool papers will be
presented during a special tool session.

All submissions must be prepared using the LNCS style.

Each paper will undergo a thorough review process. All accepted
(regular and tool) papers will be included in the final proceedings,
which we plan to publish as a Springer LNCS volume (pending
confirmation). Submissions should be made using the GraMSec'15
EasyChair web site.

Submission deadline: April 19, 2015
Acceptance notification: May 26, 2015
Camera ready version: June 15, 2015
Workshop: July 13, 2015
