8th IEEE International Workshop on Security Aspects of Process and Services Engineering (SAPSE2016)

Goal of the workshop
The workshop aims to foster cooperation among software practitioners and researchers in order to exchange the latest industrial experience and research ideas on the security of services and processes engineering.
Workshop theme
The area of processes and services engineering is a very attractive field for innovative research, particularly in the last years, when the outsourcing of business processes on the cloud has become a popular paradigm for both small and big companies. The outsourcing of data, services, processes and infrastructures on remote platforms provided by third parties is posing new important challenges, especially considering the security aspects, since the resulting software systems are expected to function correctly and resist also to malicious attacks under different changing threat scenarios. New techniques and methodologies are needed to enable the development of more robust and more trusted systems, where security is taken into account and integrated in the whole design process since the very first stages.
Likely participants
Security researchers, software engineers, software practitioners are called to participate and exchange ideas and techniques.
Scope of the workshop
Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of process engineering, service-oriented computing, and security are invited to discuss state of the art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies, techniques, experience reports, and tools for the development and use of secure service oriented systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: • Trust, security, and privacy in cloud and/or service based systems

  • Secure business process composition
  • Security of business processes over the cloud
  • Risk management in business processes
  • Trust and policy management in clouds
  • Service dependability, survivability, and reliability
  • Design and development of secure services
  • Security specification of service oriented systems
  • Certification of cloud-based systems
  • Verification, validation and testing of security properties
