The Fifth International Workshop on Security in Cloud Computing (SCC)

held in conjunction with the 12th ACM Asia Conference on Computer and
Communications Security (ASIACCS)
April 2nd, 2017, Abu Dhabi, UAE


Cloud computing has emerged as today's most exciting computing paradigm
shift in information technology. With the efficient sharing of abundant
computing resources in the cloud, users can economically enjoy the
on-demand high quality cloud applications and services without committing
large capital outlays locally. While the cloud benefits are compelling, its
unique attributes also raise many security and privacy challenges in areas
such as data security, recovery, privacy, access control, trusted
computing, as well as legal issues in areas such as regulatory compliance,
auditing, and many others. To implement secure and privacy-aware
environments which can provide on-demand computing and high-quality service
for cloud users is extremely urgent. This workshop is intended to bring
together researchers, developers, and practitioners in security, privacy
and mobile computing communities. We encourage submissions on all
theoretical and practical aspects, as well as experimental studies of
deployed systems. Topics of interests include (but are not limited to) the
following subject categories

 - Secure cloud architecture
 - Cloud Cryptography
 - Cloud access control and key management
 - Identification and privacy in cloud
 - Integrity assurance for data outsourcing
 - Integrity and verifiable computation
 - Computation over encrypted data
 - Software and data segregation security
 - Secure management of virtualized resources
 - Trusted computing technology
 - Joint security and privacy aware protocol design
 - Failure detection and prediction
 - Secure data management within and across data centers
 - Availability, recovery and auditing
 - Secure computation outsourcing
 - Secure mobile cloud

Authors are invited to submit either Research Papers or Position Papers or
both. Position Papers that define new problems in cloud computing security
or provide visions and clarifications of cloud computing security are
solicited. Regular Research Papers that present novel research results on
security and privacy in cloud computing are also welcome.
