Security and privacy are paramount concerns in information processing systems, which are vital to business, government and military operations and, indeed, society itself. Meanwhile, the expansion of the Internet and its convergence with telecommunication networks are providing incredible connectivity, myriad applications and, of course, new threats. Data and Applications Security XVII: Status and Prospects describes original research results, practical experiences and innovative ideas, all focused on maintaining security and privacy in information processing systems and applications that pervade cyberspace.
The areas of coverage include:
-Information Warfare, -Information Assurance, -Security and Privacy, -Authorization and Access Control in Distributed Systems, -Security Technologies for the Internet, -Access Control Models and Technologies, -Digital Forensics.
This book is the seventeenth volume in the series produced by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.3 on Data and Applications Security. It presents a selection of twenty-six updated and edited papers from the Seventeenth Annual IFIP TC11 / WG11.3 Working Conference on Data and Applications Security held at Estes Park, Colorado, USA in August 2003, together with a report on the conference keynote speech and a summary of the conference panel. The contents demonstrate the richness and vitality of the discipline, and other directions for future research in data and applications security. Data and Applications Security XVII: Status and Prospects is an invaluable resource for information assurance researchers, faculty members and graduate students, as well as for individuals engaged in research and development in the information technology sector.
This volume contains the papers selected for presentation at the 17th IFIP WG 11.3 Working Conference on Database and Application Security. The Conference was held on 4-6 August 2003, in Estes Park, CO, USA. It describes original research results and innovative practical developments that pertain to maintaining security and privacy in database systems and applications.
In response to the call for papers, 49 papers were submitted to the conference. These papers were evaluated on the basis of their significance, novelty, and technical quality. Each paper was reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The Program Committee meeting was held electronically. Of the papers submitted, 26 were selected for presentation at the conference. The papers cover a wide range of topics: Information Warfare, Information Assurance, Security and Privacy, Authorization and Access Control in Distributed Systems, Access Control Models and Technologies, and Security Technologies for the Internet. The papers not only demonstrate the richness of the discipline but also outlines directions for future research in Data and Applications Security.
