2009 ACM Workshop on Secure Web Services (SWS)
November 13, 2009
Hyatt Regency, Chicago, USA.
Held in conjunction with the
Call for Papers
Basic security protocols for Web Services, such as XML Security, the WS-* series of proposals, SAML, and XACML are the basic set of building blocks enabling Web Services and the nodes of GRID architectures to interoperate securely. While these building blocks are now firmly in place, a number of challenges are still to be met for Web services and GRID nodes to be fully secured and trusted, providing for secure communications between cross-platform and cross-language Web services. Also, the current trend toward representing Web services orchestration and choreography via advanced business process metadata is fostering a further evolution of current security models and languages, whose key issues include setting and managing security policies, inter-organizational (trusted partner) security issues and the implementation of high level business policies in a Web services environment.
The SWS workshop explores these challenges, ranging from the advancement and best practices of building block technologies such as XML and Web services security protocols to higher level issues such as advanced metadata, general security policies, trust establishment, risk management, and service assurance.
The workshop provides a forum for presenting research results, practical experiences, and innovative ideas in web services security.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Web services and GRID computing security
- Authentication and authorization
- Frameworks for managing, establishing and assessing inter-organizational trust relationships
- Web services exploitation of Trusted Computing
- Semantics-aware Web service security and Semantic Web Secure orchestration of Web services
- Privacy and digital identities support
- Paper submissions due: July 3rd, 2009.
- Acceptance notifications: August 16th, 2009.
- Camera-ready papers due: August 25th, 2009.
