# Scope

Cloud computing has emerged as today's most exciting computing paradigm shift in information technology. With the efficient sharing of abundant computing resources in the cloud, users can economically enjoy the on-demand high quality cloud applications and services without committing large capital outlays locally. While the cloud benefits are compelling, its unique attributes also raise many security and privacy challenges in areas such as data security, recovery, privacy, access control, trusted computing, as well as legal issues in areas such as regulatory compliance, auditing, and many others. To implement secure and privacy-aware environments which can provide on-demand computing and high-quality service for cloud users is extremely urgent. This workshop is intended to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners in security, privacy and mobile computing communities. We encourage submissions on all theoretical and practical aspects, as well as experimental studies of deployed systems. Topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:

- Secure cloud architecture
- Cloud Cryptography
- Cloud access control and key management
- Identification and privacy in cloud
- Integrity assurance for data outsourcing
- Integrity and verifiable computation
- Computation over encrypted data
- Software and data segregation security
- Secure management of virtualized resources
- Trusted computing technology
- Joint security and privacy aware protocol design
- Failure detection and prediction
- Secure data management within and across data centers
- Availability, recovery and auditing
- Secure computation outsourcing
- Secure mobile cloud
- Authors are invited to submit either Research Papers or Position Papers or both.

Position Papers that define new problems in cloud computing security or provide visions and clarifications of cloud computing security are solicited. Regular Research Papers that present novel research results on security and privacy in cloud computing are also welcome.
