2009 ACM Cloud Computing Security Workshop (CCSW) at CCS 13 November 2009, Hyatt Regency Chicago http://crypto.cs.stonybrook.edu/ccsw09 Notwithstanding the latest buzzword (grid, cloud, utility computing, SaaS, etc.), large-scale computing and cloud-like infrastructures are here to stay. How exactly they will look like tomorrow is still for the markets to decide, yet one thing is certain: clouds bring with them new untested deployment and associated adversarial models and vulnerabilities. CCSW aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in all security aspects of cloud-centric and outsourced computing, including: + secure resource virtualization + secure data management outsourcing + practical privacy & integrity for outsourcing + foundations of cloud-centric threat models + secure computation outsourcing + remote attestation mechanisms + sandboxing and VM-based enforcements + trust and policy management in clouds + secure identity management mechanisms + web service security paradigms and mechanisms + cloud-centric regulatory compliance + business & security risk models and clouds + cost & usability models and their interaction with security in clouds + scalability of security in global-size clouds + trusted computing technology and clouds + binary analysis of software for remote attestation and cloud protection + network security mechanisms for clouds + emerging cloud programming models security + energy/costs/efficiency of security in clouds We would like to especially encourage novel paradigms and controversial ideas that are not on the above list. The workshop is to act as a fertile ground for creative debate and interaction in security-sensitive areas of computing impacted by clouds. CCSW is soliciting full papers of up to 12 pages and short papers of up to 6 pages. Submissions must be in double-column ACM format with a font no smaller than 10 point (note: pages must be numbered). Only PDF files will be accepted. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. Accepted papers will be published by ACM Press and/or the ACM Digital Library. *** Both research and position/vision/white papers are invited *** Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. All authors and their affiliations must be listed. Proposals for panels are also solicited. The proposals are to be concise, up to 2 pages in length, describe the handled topics, name potential panelists and briefly scope the panel for CCSW. Disruptive and controversial panels are particularly encouraged.
