Held in conjunction with the 11st International Conference on Signal Image
Technology & Internet Based Systems (SITIS 2015) One day between November
23-27, 2015, Bangkok, Thailand Web site: http://sesar.di.unimi.it/IWSAC2015

The ongoing merge between Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and the
Cloud computing paradigm provides a new environment fostering the
integration of services located within company boundaries with those in the
Cloud. An increasing number of organizations implement their business
processes and applications via runtime composition of services made
available in the Cloud by external suppliers. This scenario is changing the
traditional view of security introducing new service security risks and
threats, and requires re-thinking of current assurance, development,
testing, and verification methodologies. In particular, security assurance
in the cloud is becoming a pressing need to increase the confidence of the
cloud actors that the cloud and its services are behaving as expected, and
requires novel approaches addressing SOA and cloud peculiarities. IWSAC 2015
is the third edition of the International Workshop on Security Assurance in
the Cloud. It aims to address the security assurance issues related to the
deployment of services in the Cloud, along with evaluating their impact on
traditional security solutions for software and network systems.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and assurance
of services implemented in the Cloud, as well as experimental studies in
Cloud infrastructures, the implementation of services, and lessons learned.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Accountability in the cloud
* Authentication and access control in the cloud
* Challenges in moving critical systems to the cloud
* Cloud audit, certification, and compliance
* Cloud transparency, introspection, and outrospection
* Data security and privacy in the Cloud
* Evidence-based assurance of cloud services
* Information assurance and trust management
* Intrusion detection in the cloud
* Policy compliance
* Security assurance in the cloud
* Security and assurance protocols in the cloud
* Security and privacy in the cloud
* Service level agreements
* Service procurement in the cloud
* Verification of cloud services
