SCOPE

The aim of this workshop is to bring together rewriting researchers
and  security  experts, in order to  foster  their  interaction and
develop future collaborations in this area,  provide  a  forum  for
presenting  new  ideas and work in progress,  and  enable newcomers
to learn about current activities in this area.

The workshop focuses on the use of rewriting techniques in all aspects
of security. Specific topics include: authentication, encryption,
access control and authorization, protocol verification, specification
of policies, intrusion detection, integrity of information, control of
information leakage, control of distributed and mobile code, etc.

Previous instances of SecRet were held in 2006 (S. Servolo, Venice,
Italy), and 2007 (Paris, France).

LOCATION

SecReT'08 will be held at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, USA. The  workshop is associated with the 21st IEEE
Computer Security Foundations Symposium (CSF'08) and the  23rd IEEE
Symposium on Logic in Computer Science (LICS'08).
