Call for papers

The SIS workshop is envisioned as a forum to promote the exchange of
ideas and results addressing complex security issues that arise in
modern information systems. We aim at bringing together a community of
security researchers and practitioners working in such divers areas as
networking security, antivirus protection, intrusion detection,
cryptography, security protocols, and others.

We would like to promote an integrated view at the security of
information systems. As information systems evolve, becoming more
complex and ubiquitous, issues relating to security, privacy and
dependability become more critical. At the same time, the global and
distributed character of modern computing - typically involving
interconnected heterogeneous execution environments - introduces many
new and challenging engineering and scientific problems. Providing
protection against increasingly sophisticated attacks requires
strengthening the interaction between different security communities,
e.g. antivirus and networking.

New technologies lead to the emergence of new threats and attack
strategies, involving smart mobile devices, peer-to-peer networks,
instant messaging, VoIP, mesh networks or even networked consumer
devices, such as house appliances or cars. Furthermore, the increasing
openness of the communications infrastructure results in novel threats
and can jeopardize critical enterprise and public infrastructure, such
as industrial automation and process control systems. Not only it is
estimated that half of all Web applications and Internet storefronts
still contain some security vulnerabilities, but secure commerce
applications are also exposed to increasingly elaborate attacks,
including spyware, phishing and other social engineering methods. In
order to develop a secure system, security has to be considered in all
phases of the lifecycle and adequately addressed in all layers of the
system. At the same time, good engineering has to take into account both
scientific and economic aspects of every solution: the cost of security
has to be carefully measured against its benefits - in particular the
expected cost of mitigated risks.

Most companies and individuals treat security measures in information
system as a necessary, but often uncomfortable, overhead. The increasing
penetration of computing in all domains of everyday life means that
security of critical business systems is often managed and maintained by
personnel who are not knowledgeable in the field. This highlights the
importance of usability and ease of configuration of security mechanism
and protocols.
