Call for papers: First International Workshop on Agile Development of
Secure Software (ASSD'15)
to be held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on
Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES'15)

August 24-28, 2015
Toulouse, France

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2015

Most organizations use the agile software development methods, such as
Scrum and XP for developing their software. Unfortunately, the agile
software development methods are not well suited for the development of
secure systems; they allow change of requirements, prefer frequent
deliveries, use lightweight documentation, and their practices do not
include security engineering activities. These characteristics limit
their use for developing secure software. For instance, they do not
consider conflicting security requirements that emerge in different

The goal of the workshop is to bring together security and software
development researchers to share their finding, experiences, and
positions about developing secure software using the agile methods. The
workshop aims to encourage the use of scientific methods to investigate
the challenges related to the use of the agile approach to develop
secure software. It aims also to increase the communication between
security researchers and software development researchers to enable the
development of techniques and best practices for developing secure
software using the agile methods.

Topics of interest
The list of topics that are relevant to the ASSD workshop includes the
following, but is not limited to:
	Challenges for agile development of secure software
	Processes for agile development of secure software
	Incremental development of cyber-physical systems
	Secure software development training and education
	Tools supporting incremental secure software development
	Usability of agile secure software development
	Security awareness for software developers
	Security metrics for agile development
	Security and robustness testing in agile development
