CFP: IEEE Workshop on Web Services Security

Mon, April 10, 2006Call For Papers

The IEEE Workshop on Web Services Security, which will be held in Oakland, CA on May 21, 2006, is currently seeking participants.

IEEE Workshop on Web Services Security
May 21, 2006
Oakland, California, USA

In conjunction with the 2006 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy

Important Dates:
Paper Submission Due: April 3rd 2006
Acceptance Notification: April 25th 2006

The advance of Web Services technologies promises to have far reaching effects on the Internet and enterprise networks. Web services based on eXtensible Markup Language (XML), Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and related open standards in the area of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) allow data and applications to interact without human intervention through dynamic and ad hoc connections. However, the security challenges presented by the Web Services approach are formidable. Many of the features that make Web Services attractive are at odds with traditional security models and controls. This workshop will explore the challenges in the area of Web Services Security ranging from security issues in XML, SOAP and UDDI to higher level issues such as advanced metadata, general security policies and service assurance.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
Web services and GRID computing security
Authentication and authorization
Integrity and transaction management for Web Services
Use of Web Services in Trusted Computing Platform
Semantic aware Web Services security
Privacy and digital identity
Trust negotiation for Web Services
Secure web service composition and workflows
