SCOPE

Model-Based system engineering has shown to bring considerable advantages, providing consistent means to support development practices in many application domains, including security and privacy sensitive systems. Model-based methodologies and security engineering requires advanced integrative techniques and tools to deal with multiple concerns and entities such as security requirements, certification processes, regulatory policies, testing and assurance mechanisms. Model-based security engineering has originated a broad range of new methodologies which are progressively being adopted by industry due to their ease of integration and effectiveness. Moreover, computer readability of models open up interesting possibilities for creating advanced computer-supported capabilities for security and privacy engineering and for taking advantage of experts' knowledge, thus closing the gap between security engineering and software development.

Topics: Model-Based Security System Engineering. Model-Based Privacy by Design. Domain Specific Modeling Languages supporting Security or Privacy by design. Model-Based processes for Security Requirements Engineering. Model-Based Engineering for Certification of Systems. Model-Based Engineering to address Privacy Preserving systems. Model Transformations and Generative Approaches for development of Secure Systems. Tools, meta-tools and frameworks for Model-Based approaches. Analysis, Validation and Verification of Model-Based Security Engineering Processes. Cases Studies on Industrial Applications of Model-Based Security Engineering. Privacy Preserving and Security-aware Integration of Tools, Modelling Languajes, Certification Mechanisms and Model-Based engineering approaches. New Model-Based paradigms to support Security Engineering. New Security Model-Based approaches and techniques for emerging challenges and paradigms such as cyber-physical, cloud computing, surveillance, interoperable or energy efficiency systems. New applications, theoretical approaches, frameworks, or processes for Model-Based security development.
