EURASIP Journal on Information Security welcomes submissions to the special issue on Recent Advances in Software Security.
The security of software has become crucial given the impact of the attacks on organizations, individuals, and communities. Despite the increased awareness and concerns about threats, current state of the art of software engineering practices are inadequate. Building blocks such as cryptography and protocols are necessary but not sufficient to ensure the security of software. There has been progress in developing methods and tools to engineer secure software and in empirically studying the domain to identify best practices and phenomena. EURASIP Journal on Information Security calls for a special issue on Recent Advances in Software Security. This Special Issue aims to provide an international forum for both researchers and industrial practitioners to share the latest advances in the state of the art and practice of software security and to identify emerging research topics.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Data-driven secure software development
- challenges for agile development of secure software
- experience with secure DevOps
- 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 and robustness testing in agile development
