5th International Workshop on Analysis of Security APIs, 30th June 2011,
Submission deadline: April 8th 2011, Paris, France

Security APIs allow untrusted code to access sensitive resources in a
secure way. Security API analysis is an emerging field of computer
security research. The aim of the ASA workshop is to bring together
researchers working in security API analysis for a day of
presentations and discussions.

Since the field is relatively young, polished research papers will not
be solicited. Instead, the workshop will follow the format that was
highly successful at ASA in 2007-10: prospective participants are
invited to submit a short (1-4 page) abstract describing their current work
and/or interests in the area. We plan to have two sessions of
20-minute talks by participants, with each session followed by
informal discussion. There will also be a workshop dinner in the
evening, and subject to confirmation, an invited speaker.

The scope of ASA runs from theoretical results and formalisms for API
analysis right through to applications and empirical results with
security APIs deployed `in the field'. Applications of interest
include (but are not limited to) financial applications (e.g. APIs of
Hardware Security Modules), smartcard APIs, the Trusted Computing
Architecture, and security APIs for web based systems.
