CALL FOR PAPERS FIRST ACM WORKSHOP ON INFORMATION SHARING AND COLLABORATIVE SECURITY (WISCS 2014) https://sites.google.com/site/wiscs2014/ Held in conjunction with 21st ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS), Scottsdale, Arizona, USA. Nov. 3, 2014 Sharing of security related information is believed to greatly enhance the ability of organizations to defend themselves against sophisticated attacks. If one organization detects a breach the automated sharing of observed security indicators (such as IP addresses, domain names etc.) provide valuable, actionable information to others. Through analyzing shared data it seems possible to get much better insights into emerging attacks. Sharing higher level intelligence about campaigns, threat actors and mitigations is also of great interest. Both in the US and the EU there are major efforts underway to strengthen information sharing. Yet there are a number of technical and policy challenges to realizing this vision. Which information exactly should be shared? How can privacy and confidentiality be protected? How can we create high-fidelity intelligence from shared data without getting overwhelmed by false positives? The first Workshop on Information Sharing and Collaborative Security (WISCS 2014) aims to bring together experts and practitioners from academia, industry and government to present innovative research, case studies, and legal and policy issues. Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to: Collaborative intrusion detection Case studies for information sharing Domain name and IP address blacklisting Collaborative approaches to spear$B!>(Bphishing and DDoS attacks Data deidentification Privacy and confidentiality Cryptographic protocols for collaborative security Scalability of security analysis on shared data Ontologies and standards for sharing security data Human factors in collaboration Policy and legal issues Surveillance issues Trust models Attacks on information sharing Economics of security collaboration IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission due: July 1, 2014 Author notification: August 10, 2014 Camera read copies due: August 24, 2014 Workshop: Nov 3, 2014.

Regular submissions should be at most 10 pages in the ACM double-column format including bibliography, but excluding well-marked appendices, and at most 12 pages total. Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and so the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions should not be anonymized. Submissions are to be made to the EasyChair submission web site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wiscs2014 . You will be requested to upload the file of your paper (in PDF format only). Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Papers must be received by the deadline of July 1, 2013 to be considered. Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to authors by August 10, 2013. The camera ready versions must be prepared by August 24, 2014 (firm). Proceedings of the workshop will be published by ACM on a CD, available to the workshop attendees. Papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library, with a specific ISBN. Each accepted paper must be presented by an author, who will have to be registered by the early-bird registration deadline.
