STPSA 2019: The 14th IEEE International Workshop on Security, Trust, and Privacy for Software Applications
In conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Computers, Software, & Applications (COMPSAC)
Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, July 15-19
Workshop Website: https://ieeecompsac.computer.org/2019/stpsa/

Goal of the workshop
This workshop will bring researchers from academia and industry to discuss methods and tools to achieve security, trust, and privacy goals of both pervasive and non-pervasive software applications. This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences, and lessons learned with respect to the state of art for the security, trust, and privacy aspects of both pervasive and non-pervasive software applications along with various open issues.

Scope of the Workshop
Information security has become a major concern for software and applications. Software systems must be engineered with reliable protection mechanisms with respect to security, privacy, and trust, while still delivering the expected value of the software to their customers. The traditional approaches to secure a system (e.g., IDS, firewalls) are no longer sufficient to address many security, trust, and privacy (STP) issues. These issues should be addressed by building more effective STP-aware software applications. The principal obstacle in developing STP-aware software is that current software specification, design, implementation, and testing practices do not include adequate methods and tools to achieve security, trust, and privacy goals. Further, emerging techniques such as blockchain bring on new challenges to adopt them into developing STP-aware software and applications. In this workshop, we welcome papers on existing and emerging challenges and requirements of security, privacy, and trust for software applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Security, trust, and privacy specific software development practices
- Security, trust, and privacy requirements elicitation and specification
- Models and languages for STP-aware software specification and design
- Architecture for STP-aware software development
- STP challenges for pervasive software applications
- Testing security, trust, and privacy properties of software applications
- STP management and usability issues in software applications
- User interfaces for STP-aware pervasive and non-pervasive software
- STP challenges in e-services, e.g. e-health, e-government, e-banking, e-commerce, e-marketing and other web-based and pervasive applications
- STP challenges in mobile software applications
- STP challenges in sensor-based software applications
- User interfaces for secure and privacy-aware pervasive computing applications
- STP-aware service discovery mechanisms for pervasive computing environments
- Models for ensuring security, trust, and privacy in pervasive software applications
- STP issues for handheld device software applications such as healthcare
- Offensive security and attacks on software applications and mitigation techniques
- Application of blockchain technologies for STP-aware software development
- Teaching, innovative course or curriculum for STP-aware software development
- Experience reports on developing STP-aware software
- Ethical issues in STP-aware software and application development
- Experience reports on developing STP-aware software

Paper Submission
The length of a camera-ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Proceedings style) with up to 2 additional pages (with charges for each additional page) printed on 10 point fonts. Authors must follow the IEEE CS Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare papers. All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers and accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index (Elsevier's Eng. Inf. Index), and automatically included in the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay the full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person.
