 (IWSAC 2014)
 Held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Signal
 Image Technology & Internet Based Systems (SITIS 2014) One day
 between November 23-27, 2014, Marrakech, Morocco Web site:
 The ongoing merge between Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) and the
 Cloud computing paradigm provides a new environment fostering the
 integration of services located within company boundaries with those in the
 Cloud. An increasing number of organizations implement their business
 processes and applications via runtime composition of services made
 available in the Cloud by external suppliers. This scenario is changing the
 traditional view of security introducing new service security risks and
 threats, and requires re-thinking of current assurance, development,
 testing, and verification methodologies. In particular, security assurance
 in the cloud is becoming a pressing need to increase the confidence of the
 cloud actors that the cloud and its services are behaving as expected, and
 requires novel approaches addressing SOA and cloud peculiarities. IWSAC 2014
 is the continuation of the International Workshop on Securing Services on
 the Cloud, held in September 2011, Milan, Italy. It aims to address the
 security assurance issues related to the deployment of services in the
 Cloud, along with evaluating their impact on traditional security solutions
 for software and network systems.
 The workshop seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
 research on all theoretical and practical aspects of security and assurance
 of services implemented in the Cloud, as well as experimental studies in
 Cloud infrastructures, the implementation of services, and lessons learned.
 Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
 * Authentication and access control in the cloud
 * Challenges in moving critical systems to the cloud
 * Cloud accountability
 * Cloud audit
 * Cloud compliance
 * Cloud certification
 * Cloud transparency, introspection, and outrospection
 * Cybersecurity in the cloud
 * Data security and privacy in the Cloud
 * Information assurance and trust management
 * Intrusion detection in the Cloud
 * Security assurance in the cloud
 * Security and assurance protocols in the Cloud
 * Service level agreements
 * Service procurement in the cloud
 * Service verification in critical cloud services
 * Test-based and monitoring-based verification of cloud services
