 STAVE 2011 Call for Papers

1st International Workshop on Security & Trust
for Applications in Virtualised Environments

Crete, Greece, June 28 - 30, 2011


STAVE overview
Virtualization technologies offer many benefits to IT organisations
today and into the future.
These technologies allow organisations to increase the utilisation of
their IT infrastructure
while lowering the overall costs of ownership and accelerating the
return on investment.
As virtualization increases the sharing of compute, network and I/O
resources with multiple
users and applications in order to drive higher utilisation rates, this
replaces the traditional
physical isolation boundaries with virtual ones. This fundamental change
in isolation
boundaries introduces new risk vectors for data leakage,
cross-contamination as well as new
requirements for the auditing and monitoring of such virtualised systems.
In order to allow the deployment of e-Government, e-Health or other
application services that
use, store, and process highly sensitive data, there are a number of
significant, common,
complex issues which must be addressed by virtualisation technologies
and solutions which
have particular relevance:
. Compliance with legal frameworks for data protection and privacy
. Identity management between different governmental services.
. Security and Trust aspects of using virtualisation in a distributed
. Policy mapping (existing security and trust systems with
virtualisation solutions).
. Management of risks and policy compliance verification.
This workshop will, for the first time, bring together researchers from
a broad array of
application and technical areas who are concerned with security and
trust in virtualised
environments. It will draw out common themes, problems and issues that
are encountered,
and the solutions that have been devised to deal with the problems of
securing virtualised
environments and compliance with government regulations. It will aim to
provide the basis
for a common understanding and common approaches to security and trust
that synthesises
the insights and best of breed solutions being developed in the diverse
areas in which these
problems are encountered.

The conference includes, but is not limited to, the areas listed below:

Security and Trust for E-Government, e-Health and other application
services which use,
store and process highly sensitive data within Virtualized Environments
Issues in the
following areas:
. Security and Integrity of virtualisation environments
. Implications of virtualization for eGovernment, eHealth
. Management and control of virtualized server farms for security
. Analytics and Forensics in a virtualised environment
. Instrumentation and control of virtualization
. Enhancing privacy and anonymity using virtualization
. Virtualization within a overall security and trust framework
. Management and Policy languages for virtualized environments
. Identity management
. Policy Compliance Verification (Legal, Jurisdiction)

Authors are invited to submit full papers (6 pages) describing the
original work to the
Workshop website. All manuscripts must be written in English and should
be prepared in
IEEE style. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the STAVE Technical
Committee. For the review, all the papers in PDF should be submitted to
the STA2011
conference website (http://www.ftrai.org/sta2011), filling every item
and uploading the
respective papers.

The contributed papers, after being reviewed and accepted by STAVE
referees, will be
published in the Conference Proceedings that will be included in the
IEEE Conference
Publication Program. The papers will also be indexed and abstracted by
several databases
such as INSPEC, Engineering Index (EI), SCOPUS, Conference Proceedings
Citation Index
(CPCI), etc.

Important Dates
. Full Paper Submission: 18th February 2011
. Acceptance Notification: to be confirmed
. Camera-Ready Manuscript Due: 1st April 2011
