Goal of the Workshop

While identity management solutions are increasingly migrating to cloud, conventional  identity management approaches are facing challenges in trust, security, privacy, omputational efficiency, interoperability, and service reliability in the cloud nvironment. Security concerns are reportedly among the biggest inhibitors holding back the wider adoption of cloud computing in this domain. Secure identity management, required by emerging cloud services as well as existing federated services or newest distributed technologies, is receiving increasing attention from both service providers' and end users' perspectives, in terms of protection of enterprise assets and customers’ privacy in the cloud, respectively. This workshop solicits contributions describing state-of-the-art methodology and technology innovations in the field of secure identity management in the cloud computing environment, encourages experience sharing (both positive and negative ones), and also welcomes disruptive work-in-progress ideas towards future concepts.

The workshop is dedicated to the security and privacy aspects of identity management (IDM) in the cloud. Topics are articulated around several important themes as “concept design”, “enabling technologies”, “federated identities” and “applications”. It is expected they will attract both theoretical and empirical works from the IDM society and the cloud computing society.

Scope of the Workshop

Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of secure identity management in the cloud environment will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome. Practically-oriented approaches will also be appreciated.

  • -identity-based access control and remote personal data management (authentication, authorization, accounting and access management, single sign on for Web services and non-web applications)
  • -data processing and analysis in a protected domain for personal data management
  • -service-oriented architecture for IDM in cloud, e.g. identity authentication outsourcing
  • -identity federations & trust fabrics (technologies and policies) ; federation of identities in roaming scenario
  • -new concept design of IDM towards cloud (e.g. distributed ledger-based)
  • -technologies for enhancing privacy and security of customer data and social media (biometrics, multi-factor authentication, mobile devices)
  • -security and privacy enhanced databases and directory services
  • -Secure messaging, digital signature, and encryption ; PKI architecture, Security Policy, and operation method
  • -Big data/Cloud/GRID access control and privacy protection
  • -applications, e.g. cross-border IDM, security and privacy enhanced IDM for eCommerce, eCitizen, and eHealth in cloud
  • -privacy, data protection and security evaluation for IDM services in cloud and case study of security breaches of IDM in cloud
  • -legal aspects of innovative IDM services in the cloud

Workshop Paper Submission

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. A camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Conference Proceedings style). Authors must follow COMPSAC Author Guidelines to prepare papers. At least one of the authors of an accepted paper is required to pay full registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person, in order to enable indexing through INSPEC and EI, and inclusion in the IEEE digital library.
