Aims and scope of SECOVAL:

Security is usually centrally managed, for example in a form of policies duly executed by individual nodes. The SECOVAL workshop covers the alternative trend of using collaboration and trust to provide security. Instead of centrally managed security policies, nodes may use specific knowledge (both local and acquired from other nodes) to make security-related decisions. For example, in reputation-based schemes, the reputation of a given node (and hence its security access rights) can be determined based on the recommendations of peer nodes. As systems are being deployed on ever-greater scale without direct connection to their distant home base, the need for self management is rapidly increasing. Interaction after interaction, as the nodes collaborate, there is the emergence of a digital ecosystem. By guiding the local decisions of the nodes, for example, with whom the nodes collaborate, global properties of the ecosystem where the nodes operate may be guaranteed. Thus, the security property of the ecosystem may be driven by self-organizing mechanisms. Depending on which local collaboration is preferred, a more trustworthy ecosystem may emerge.

This year SECOVAL is focusing upon a special research subtopic mobile collaborative security

While papers will be considered that address any of the topics of security through collaboration from previous years (e.g., benefits from collaboration, methods of creating or measuring trust, self-organizing coalitions and risk analysis), the focus of the workshop will be around mobile application domains.
Topics of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to:

    * Mobile collaborative security
    * Data sharing and anonymization case studies
    * Metrics of utility, anonymization strength and information loss
    * Identification of data sources and types useful to share for collaborative computer security
    * Context-aware trust and reputation management
    * Insights from industry and case studies
