Chamada de artigos: workshop internacional sobre Segurança no Estoril em Junho

Peço a vossa atenção para a seguinte chamada para um workshop internacional sobre Segurança Informática (tolerância a intrusões) que se vai realizar no próximo dia 29 de Junho no Estoril junto da 39ª IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN). O prazo de submissão de artigos e resumos extendidos é o próximo dia 16 de Março.


3rd Workshop on Recent Advances on Intrusion-Tolerant Systems
WRAITS 20089

In conjunction with The 39th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks - DSN 2009
June 29, 2009
Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal


The 3rd Workshop on Recent Advances on Intrusion-Tolerant Systems aims to foster the understanding of and collaborative discourse on the challenges of building intrusion tolerant systems and innovative ideas to address them. As a technical area, Intrusion Tolerance is at the intersection of Fault Tolerance and Security. As a practical discipline, it brings in additional topics ranging from software engineering, adaptive system development to reasoning, coordination and control of distributed resources and mechanisms, as well as validation and evaluation of security and survivability claims. The workshop will be especially interested in "practical intrusion-tolerant systems": How are threats to business- and mission-critical information systems handled today? Are emerging intrusion tolerance techniques being used? What mechanisms are finding more use and why? What factors may be discouraging mainstream adoption? How to build information systems that are inherently resilient to intrusions? What new techniques are in the horizon? How to evaluate and test the dependability and security of new techniques? The workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present architectures for intrusion-tolerant systems, new defense mechanisms, recent results, discuss open problems that still need research, and survivability challenge problems in specific application and domain areas.

Authors are invited to submit papers to the workshop, which will be held in conjunction with the 39th IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN), June 29 - July 2, 2009. Papers can present ongoing work and/or speculative/futuristic ideas. Experimental results or other forms of validation are especially encouraged. The workshop papers will be published in a supplementary volume of the conference proceedings.


Topics of interest related to intrusion tolerance (IT) include, but are not limited to:
* automatic recovery and response techniques
* hardware and software virtualization for IT
* leveraging social computing networks for resiliency
* threat of botnet herds and surviving them
* survivability and information assurance in the Cloud
* use of Byzantine fault-tolerant algorithms in IT
* biologically inspired defenses
* diversity and failure independence
* evaluation of IT systems
* theoretical limits of IT
* real world case studies

More information about the workshop can be obtained by emailing to


The workshop will accept two formats of papers: regular papers (maximum 5 pages) and position papers (maximum 2 pages). Position papers allow researchers to present more speculative/futuristic ideas to stimulate discussion and further work. Papers have to adhere to the IEEE Computer Society camera-ready 8.5"x11" two-column camera-ready format, like regular DSN papers. Instructions about how to submit papers can be found on the web site: . 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.
