There is a change in the information systems development paradigm. The emergence of Web 2.0 technologies led to the extensive deployment and use of web-based applications and web services as a way to developed new and flexible information systems. Such systems are easy to develop, deploy and maintain and demonstrate impressive features for users, resulting in their current wide use.

As a result of this paradigm shift, the security requirements have also changed. These web-based information systems have different security requirements, when compared to traditional systems. Important security issues have been found and privacy concerns have also been raised recently. In addition, the emerging Cloud Computing paradigm promises even greater flexibility; however corresponding security and privacy issues still need to be examined. The security environment should involve not only the surrounding environment but also the application core.

This conference aims to bring together application security experts, researchers, educators and practitioners from the industry, academia and international communities such as OWASP, in order to discuss open problems and new solutions in application security. In the context of this track academic researchers will be able to combine interesting results with the experience of practitioners and software engineers.

Conference Topics

Suggested topics for papers submission include (but are not limited to):

  • Secure application development
  • Security of service oriented architectures
  • Security of development frameworks
  • Threat modelling of web applications
  • Cloud computing security
  • Web applications vulnerabilities and analysis (code review, pen-test, static analysis etc.)
  • Metrics for application security
  • Countermeasures for web application vulnerabilities
  • Secure coding techniques
  • Platform or language security features that help secure web applications
  • Secure database usage in web applications
  • Access control in web applications
  • Web services security
  • Browser security
  • Privacy in web applications
  • Standards, certifications and security evaluation criteria for web applications
  • Application security awareness and education
  • Security for the mobile web
  • Attacks and Vulnerability Exploitation

Paper Submission Instructions

Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure (submission site). Please check the paper formats so you may be aware of the accepted paper page limits (12 pages, in accordance to a supplied template, that can be downloaded from here: in Word Format and in LateX format).

The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web site must be strictly used for all submitted papers. The submission format is the same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the instructions and templates provided.

Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable.

Papers that are out of the conference scope or contain any form of plagiarism will be rejected without reviews.

Remarks about the on-line submission procedure:

1. A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper, WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This means that is necessary to remove the author’s personal details, the acknowledgements section and any reference that may disclose the authors identity

2. Papers in ODF, PDF, DOC, DOCX or RTF format are accepted

3. The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement, by e-mail, to the contact author.

Regular Paper Submission

A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost finished. It does not necessary means that the acceptance is as a full paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30 min. oral presentation), a "short paper" (15 min. oral presentation) or a "poster".

Position Paper Submission

A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and worth listening to, without the need to present completed research work and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support your argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research (bibliographic, experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference topic areas. The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of "short paper" or "poster", i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to acceptance as "full paper".

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail. The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their paper before the camera-ready submission.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference. Conference proceedings will be published by OWASP in electronic format (Springer proceedings have been canceled due to a low number of paper submissions).

OWASP Projects and Resources you can use TODAY!
Overview & Goal
  • Apart from OWASP's Top 10, most OWASP Projects are not widely used and understood. In most cases this is not due to lack of quality and usefulness of those Document & Tool projects, but due to a lack of understanding of where they fit in an Enterprise's security ecosystem or in the Web Application Development Life-cycle.
  • This course aims to change that by providing a selection of mature and enterprise ready projects together with practical examples of how to use them.
  • If you are interested in participating in the hands on portion of the course, please bring a laptop.


Date Venue & Directions
December 16, 2010 ISCTE - Lisbon University Institute
Price & Registration
This Course is FREE for OWASP Members. Registration is mandatory.

Professor Carlos Ribeiro


Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade Técnica de Lisboa, Portugal

Talk: Web Forensics - How can computer forensics be used on the web?

Tiago Henriques


University of Bedfordshire, UK

In this session, Tiago will begin by giving a light presentation on an introduction to Computer Forensics, How it used, what are the different steps of a forensic investigation and explain certain technical quirks of data acquisition and analysis, he will then describe how computer forensics can be used to analyse web services and servers and the methodologies to do these investigations. A description on how web application incident response and forensics is different from a regular forensic investigation will also be given.

Talk: The Thing That Should Not Be (a glimpse into the future of web application security)

Bruno Morisson


Integrity, S.A., Portugal

Developers are not security practicioners. Security practitioners are not developers. Developers create web applications. Security practitioners want those apps to be secure (sometimes even if security breaks functionality). Are developers and security practitioners like oil and water ? Are security practitioners taking the right approach to help web developers understand and prevent security issues, or are we simply trying to brute force developers into security gurus ?

Talk: Developing Secure Applications with OWASP

Martin Knobloch


Sogeti Netherlands, OWASP Netherlands, Netherlands

After an introduction about OWASP, Martin will higlight the top projects of OWASP. During the presentation Martin does explain how OWASP material can be used to raise awareness about secure appliation development and how OWASP material does fit into a (secure) development lifecycle.

Talk: Developing compliant applications

Martin Knobloch


Sogeti Netherlands, OWASP Netherlands, Netherlands

How to develop applications to be compliant to security related laws and regulations? To be compliant means to follow the regulations, most of the times not known by the developers. To be compliant includes to proof to be compliant. This presentation is about how to develop compliant (Web) applications that prove to be compliant!

Talk: Software Security in the Clouds

Miguel Correia


University of Lisboa, Faculty of Sciences, Portugal

Recently an expert wrote rather enfatically that "the current state of security in commercial software is rather distasteful, marked by embarrassing public reports of vulnerabilities and actual attacks". This situation is particularly concerning in times when companies are exporting their applications and data to cloud computing systems. The first part of the talk will be a personal vision of the combination of techniques and tools needed for protecing software. The second part will argue that this combination is still insuficient for critical applications in the cloud and propose solutions based on distributing trust among different clouds.

Talk: Jiffy - A secure instant messenger

Arturo 'Buanzo' Busleiman


OWASP Argentina, Argentina

Jiffy - "Just for you" is an instant messaging system baseed on OWASP's Enigform, SSL and the OpenPGP Web-of-Trust. In this talk, Buanzo will introduce us to OpenPGP, Enigform and Jiffy.

Visit Lisbon

For Tourist Information and more: Visit Lisbon (website of the Lisbon Tourism Office). See also here. About Portugal, see here.

LISBON is beautiful, historic, modern, sunny & it never stops! It is an enchanting city with delightful cuisine and unforgettable sites. The city holds many pleasant surprises to visitors who wish to enjoy their stay. The capital of Portugal since its conquest from the Moors in 1147, Lisbon is a legendary city with over 20 centuries of History. The Alfama is one of the oldest quarters in Lisbon. It survived the earthquake of 1755 and still retains much of its original layout. In addition to Alfama are the likewise old quarters of Castelo and Mouraria, on the western and northern slopes of the hill that is crowned by St. George's Castle. Radiant skies brighten the monumental city, with its typical tile covered building façades and narrow medieval streets, where one can hear the fado being played and sung at night.

Here's a taste of what you can find here in Lisbon, or nearby.
