FAST2003 - "Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security and Trust"

The first international Workshop on Formal Aspects in Security and Trust (FAST) aims to contribute to the aggregation of researchers in the areas of security and trust. The new challenges offered by the so-called ambient intelligence space as a future paradigm in the information society demand for a coherent framework of concepts, tools and methodologies to enable user's trust&confidence on the underlying communication infrastructure. These need to address issues relating to both guaranteeing security of the infrastructure and the perception of the infrastructure being secure. In addition, user confidence on what is happening must be enhanced by developing trust models effective but also easily comprehensible and manageable by users. The complexity and scale of deployment of emerging ICT systems based on web service and grid computing concepts also necessitates the investigation of new, scalable and more flexible foundational models of enforcing pervasive security across organizational borders and in situations where there is high uncertainty about the identity and trustworthyness of the participating networked entities (including users, services and resources). The increasing need of building activities sharing different resources managed with different policies demands for new and business enabling models of trust between members of virtual communities including virtual organizations that span across the boundaries of physical enterprises and loosely structured communities of individuals.
