First Cloud and Trust Cyber Security Workshop - 28/10/2011, Poznan, Poland
Part of the 4th European Conference ServiceWave 2011

Cloud technologies are being widely adopted by the enterprise community as a computing infrastructure for business. Clouds hold the promise as one of the enabling technologies for utility computing, and have drawn a lot of interest from business users. In fact, the small and medium sized enterprises are attracted by the pay-as-you-go pricing model of cloud computing, because they can avoid up-front investment in setting up their own infrastructure

However, the explosive popularity of virtualization and cloud computing has created a rich foundation for new and successful cyber attacks due to the lack of security and trust. This is why adoption of cloud technology for business critical applications has been slow to catch on. Efforts to improve security and trust in Clouds have been initiated in the last few years. The objective of the workshop is to explore the cyber threats issues targeting virtualization and cloud computing platforms and to provide a forum for exchange of ideas between Cloud researchers working on trust and security issues, and security experts whose technologies could be applied to the Cloud.

CTCS 2011 seeks high-quality research and experimentation contributions in the form of well-developed full papers. Topics of interest encompass research advances in all areas of security, trust and privacy in Clouds. CTCS 2011 brings together security and privacy experts in academia, industry and government as well as practitioners, standards developers and policy makers. The workshop programmes will include an invited talk by an expert in the field.


Topics of interests include but are not limited to:
  • Cloud security architectures
  • Trusted and resilient Cloud architectures
  • Security in data and computational Clouds
  • Models for authentication and privacy management in Clouds
  • Novel techniques for access control to Cloud resources
  • Trust models and trust management for Clouds
  • Audit and accountability in Cloud systems
  • Cyber security model for information sharing in Clouds
  • Policy models and policy management in Clouds
  • Dynamic security techniques for Clouds
