Call For Papers


4th International Workshop on Secure systems methodologies
using patterns (SPattern 2010)

in conjunction with the
5th International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2010)

Krakow, Poland, February, 15th - 18th 2010


Security patterns have arrived to a stage where there are a significant
number of them, two books about them have been published, and industry
is starting to accept and use them. Analysis and design patterns have
been around for about ten years and have found practical use in many
projects. They have been incorporated into several software development
methodologies where less experienced developers can use them to receive
the advice and knowledge of experts. The situation is not so clear for
security patterns because no accepted methodology exists for their use.

Catalogs of security patterns are a good step, but they are not enough.
Building secure systems is a difficult process where security aspects
are interlaced with the satisfaction of functional requirements.
Developers are typically experts on a language or a development
methodology but know little about security, which results in them not
knowing what security mechanisms make sense at which moments. We need
methodologies that guide a designer at each stage of the development
cycle. A few of them have appeared, but none of them has been tested in
production applications.

This workshop focuses on secure software methodologies. We seek papers
describing individual security patterns, new methodologies, new aspects
of existing methodologies, pattern languages to use in the
methodologies, reference architectures, blueprints, and related
aspects. Experiences in applying the methodologies to real situations
are especially welcome.


Authors are invited to submit research contributions, practical
experience reports and demos.
Papers must be original not previously published nor submitted in
parallel for publication to any other conference, workshop or journal.
Submissions must be in pdf and consist of no more than 5 pages in IEEE
double column format.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the
conference and present the paper.

Submission Deadline October, 01st 2009
Author Notification November, 01st 2009
