Context and motivation

Software-based systems permeate the very fabric of our society -- from enterprise IT systems and mobile devices to smart home and city environments. Consequently, computer security is becoming an increasingly inter-disciplinary subject requiring attention to the various aspects of securing our software-based infrastructure. One must pay careful attention to ensure compatibility with existing software and the wider socio-technical context (e.g., users and organisations) which it inhabits. This, in turn, requires an approach that integrates insights from computer security research with rigorous software engineering methods to ensure the security and resilience of our digital infrastructure. ESSoS therefore welcomes contributions that are at the border of system security and software engineering.

Goal and setup

The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to bridge the software engineering and software security communities. The symposium features two days of technical program including two keynote presentations. In addition to academic papers, the symposium encourages submission of high-quality, informative industrial experience papers about successes and failures in secure software engineering and the lessons learned. Furthermore, the symposium also accepts short idea papers that crisply describe a promising direction, approach, or insight.


            The Symposium seeks submissions on subjects related to its goals. This includes a diversity of topics including (but not limited to):
            Secure software engineering
            -Security by design
            - Empirical secure software engineering
