Symposium on Simulation Software Security (SSSS'06)

Part of the 2006 Spring Simulation Multiconference (SpringSim'06)

Sponsored by:
The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SCS)

April 2 - 6, 2006

Von Braun Center
Holiday Inn Select, Huntsville Downtown
Huntsville, AL

This symposium provides a forum for papers that address the use of modeling and simulation (M&S) in the area of information assurance or computer security as well as papers that address the means and methods needed to provide security features and assurance for the simulation code itself. Papers that involve the use of visualization techniques in modeling security in systems are encourage. This is a new symposium for 2006. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

Modeling or simulating vulnerabilities in systems
Use of M&S in computer security training
M&S used in secure software development
The need for trusted software development in M&S applications
Sensitivity of and protection needed in simulation codes and models
Scientific Visualization techniques applied to computer security
Use of M&S in security engineering
Use of M&S in teaching security engineering
Use of M&S in analysis of/planning for intrusions and attacks
Models of secure behavior (OS models, policy models, access control models)
