International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering in DevOps and Agile Development (SecSE 2018)

Software security is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more ”inherently secure” systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just in the ones that ”obviously” need special protection. This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software using the DevOps paradigm, as well as other forms of agile development.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Security in DevOps
  • Security aspects of software deployment
  • Security in Continuous Deployment
  • Security Architecture in Agile Development
  • Security testing in DevOps
  • Container security for DevOps
  • Security automation tools
  • Security in agile software development
  • Agile security requirements
  • Risk management in software projects
  • Agile testing for security
  • Quantitative measurement of security properties
  • Static and dynamic analysis for security
  • Verification and assurance techniques for security properties
  • Security and usability
  • Design and deployment of secure services
  • Secure composition and adaptation of services
  • Teaching secure software development
  • Experience reports on successfully attuning developers to secure software engineering
  • Industry experience talks

Workshop deadlines:
