Second International Conference on Software Security

(ICSS 2016)

July 23-24, 2016, Chennai, India

Call for Papers
Traditionally, security in software has been thought to be something that can be easily added on as a
patch, post-development, and sometimes even after the deployment of the software. According to the USComputer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), "most successful attacks result from targeting and
exploiting known, non-patched software vulnerabilities and insecure software configurations, many of
which are introduced during design and code." Hence, it is imperative that secure design, coding and
testing principles as well as deployment and maintenance are thoroughly embedded in the software
development lifecycle. At the same time, software security is very inter-disciplinary, as software is being
developed for a variety of applications - web, Internet, database, single and distributed computer systems,
In the above context, the First International Conference on Software Security brings together researchers,
faculty, students and industry professionals who are experts in different domains of computer and
information security, but all leading to the design, development, deployment and maintenance of secure
software. We invite papers that are both theoretical as well as practical in nature, from both academia and
industry. Some of the topics of interest (but not limited to) are:
