Home Call for Papers Important Dates Committees Conference Venue Program Participation


The 2nd International Workshop on Storage Security and Survivability (StorageSS 2006) will be held on Monday, October 30, 2006, in conjunction with the 13th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS 2006), which will meet October 31–November 2, 2006 in Alexandria, Virginia.



There has been an evolution of protection solutions mirrored in both the security and survivability research communities: (1) from physical protection solutions targeting people, (2) to system protection solutions targeting networked-systems, (3) and now the new emerging paradigm of information-centric solutions targeting the data itself. This workshop will focus on stimulating new ideas in order to reshape storage protection strategies. Clearly, storage security and survivability is a complex, multi-dimensional problem that changes over time, so a large variety of approaches may be appropriate including prevention, monitoring, measurements, mitigation, and recovery.

The StorageSS workshop aims to foster a greater exchange between computer protection researchers/professionals and computer storage researchers and professionals. In this vein, we seek submissions from both research and industry presenting novel ideas on all theoretical and practical aspects of protecting storage systems. There are two types of submissions: Regular Paper (12 page maximum) and Work-In-Progress/Short Paper (6 page maximum). Papers should be formatted using 10 point Times font in two columns on standard US letter size paper, and must be submitted in PDF format. Papers can be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/starts/CCS06-StorageSS/.

A list of potential topics includes but is not limited to the following:

Papers on other topics related to security and survivability are welcome. Please contact the program chairs at chair [at] storagess dot org if you have any questions about the relevance of a paper or topic.
