                                 WRAITS 2007
                       in conjunction with EuroSys 2007

                              Lisbon, Portugal
                               March 23, 2007




The First Workshop on Recent Advances on Intrusion-Tolerant Systems aims
to bring together researchers in the related areas of Intrusion
Tolerance, Distributed Trust, Survivability, Byzantine Fault Tolerance,
and Resilience. These areas have the purpose of enhancing the
Dependability and Security of computer systems by tolerating both
malicious faults (attacks, intrusions) and accidental faults. The
workshop will be specially interested in =93intrusion-tolerant systems=94=
how to build them? How to evaluate and test their dependability and
security? What systems need to be intrusion-tolerant? The workshop will
provide a forum for researchers in these areas to present recent
results, discuss open problems that still need research, the steps that
need to be taken for intrusion-tolerant systems to be deployed in
practice, and the target application domains for intrusion tolerance.

Authors are invited to submit position papers to the workshop, that will
be held in conjunction with the European Conference on Computer Systems
(EuroSys 2007), March 21-23, 2007. Position papers can present ongoing
work and novel/speculative results, but experimental results or other
forms of validation are encouraged.


Topics of interest related to intrusion tolerance include, but are not
limited to:

* innovative system architectures
* wide-area intrusion-tolerant systems
* secure control and embedded systems
* security of critical infrastructures
* practical applications for intrusion tolerance
* state machine replication
* Byzantine quorum systems
* proactive recovery
* Byzantine fault-tolerant algorithms
* diversity and failure independence
* determinism and interoperability issues
* confidentiality and replication
* dependability and security evaluation
* performance evaluation
* risk assessment
* distributed trust
* survivable systems
* cross-organization systems


Position papers must be no longer than 5 pages including figures, tables
and references, and must conform the standard ACM conference format (see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). The paper should
begin with a title, author names and affiliations, and an abstract.
Papers must be in PDF or Postscript format and be submitted online (see
http://wraits07.di.fc.ul.pt/). More information about the workshop can
be obtained by email to the same address.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the conference
and present the paper at the workshop.
