Collaboration With Other EU Projects
Co-organized The 3rd international workshop on Safety and Security Testing and Monitoring (STAM 2023)
This workshop is to be held in conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2023 – http://www.ares-conference.eu External link.)
August 29 – September 01, 2023
Distributed computer networked systems and services have become a crucial infrastructure element for the organization of modern society. These networks and services are required to be more and more open and new technology is designed to facilitate the interoperation between these networks composed of heterogeneous, communicating devices. Guaranteeing that they interoperate in a safe and secure way has become a major concern for individuals, enterprises and governments.
Since the environment may be potentially hostile and contain malicious components, it is crucial to define frameworks adapted to distributed systems to enforce safety, security and privacy. By distributed systems, we mean all systems that are composed of more than one communicating device such as telecommunication networks, cloud/Edge computer environment, industrial systems, smart communities, internet of things, distributed operating systems and middleware etc.
The STAM workshop tries to answer how miss-behaviours and attacks modeling can help users understand the occurrence of malicious behaviors in order to avoid them, and what are the advantages and drawbacks of the existing models. At the same time, the workshop tries to understand how to solve the challenging safety and security testing and monitoring problem given that testing distributed systems is a complex task and safety & security will add new challenges and difficulties to be solved.
The objective of this workshop is to share ideas, methods, techniques, and tools about safety & security testing and monitoring in distributed systems to improve the state of the art. In addition to scientific paper presentations, we intend to have one or two keynotes describing ongoing activities in the related areas and demonstrations of some innovative security tools.
