Call for Papers: 

Second International Workshop on Agile Development of Secure Software

to be held in conjunction with ARES 2016




Most organizations use the agile software development methods, such as Scrum
and XP for developing their software. The agile software development methods
support controlling software changes and incorporating lessons learned from
previous experiences. Thus, they, for example, allow for change of
requirements, prefer frequent deliveries, and use lightweight documentation.
These characteristics, among others, are associated with challenges for
developing secure software using the agile methods. On the positive side,
they allow for efficient and effective use of resources (money and time) to
address the greatest security risks for the software.  


The goal of the workshop is to bring together security and software
development researchers to share their finding, experiences, and positions
about developing secure software using the agile methods. The workshop aims
to encourage the use of scientific methods to investigate the challenges
related to the use of the agile approach to develop secure software. It aims
also to increase the communication between security researchers and software
development researchers to enable the development of techniques and best
practices for developing secure software using the agile methods.


The list of topics that are relevant to the ASSD workshop includes the
following, but is not limited to: 

*         Experience with secure DevOps

*         Data-driven secure software development

*         Challenges for agile development of secure software

*         Incremental development of cyber-physical systems

*         Secure software development training and education

*         Tools supporting incremental secure software development  

*         Usability of agile secure software development

*         Security awareness for software developers

*         Security and robustness testing in agile development
