I am chairing a special session at The Eleventh International Conference on Emerging Security Information, Systems, and Technologies (SECUREWARE 2017). The special session will focus on Secure Software Development (SSD). The conference will take place in Rome from September 10th to the 14th.
Secure software development is the process involving people and practices that ensure application Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Non-Repudiation, and Authentication (CIANA). Secure software is the result of a security aware software development processes, where CIANA is established when an application is first developed. Current Secure Software Development LifeCycles (SSDLC) are just old Software Development LifeCycles (SDLC) with a security training prepended before the traditional development steps, and an incident response process appended to the end of the lifecycle. To solve application cyber-security issues, one needs to develop the models, tools, architectures, and algorithms that support CIANA on the first day of a development project.
Secureware is a terrific cyber-security conference and community to become associated with. Please let me know if you have colleagues or students who would be interested in submitting. Because this is a special session, I can take submission up until August 2nd. The late submission date makes it an ideal place for the dissemination of the results from your Summer research projects
