3rd Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution (SysTEX 2018)
October 15th, 2018, Beanfield Centre (Room 200BC)
The rise of new processor hardware extensions that permit fine-grained and flexible trusted execution, such as Intel's SGX, ARM's TrustZone, or AMD's SEV, introduces numerous novel challenges and opportunities for developers of secure applications. There is a burning need for cross-cutting systems support of such Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) that spans all the layers of the software stack, from the OS through runtime to compilers and programming models.
The 3rd Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution (SysTEX) will focus on systems research challenges related to TEEs, and explore new ideas and strategies for the implementation of trustworthy systems with TEEs. The workshop is also open to papers exploring attacks on current TEEs and strategies for mitigating such attacks.
This is the third installment of the workshop that follows two successful workshops collocated with primary systems venues Middleware 2016 and SOSP 2017 respectively.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
The goal of the workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion among researchers and practitioners in this field. The workshop will be one full day. The program should primarily include presentations by authors of accepted papers (the workshop will have proceedings in the ACM digital library).
SysTEX welcomes submissions in two formats:
All submissions should be in PDF and must follow the ACM SIGPLAN format (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template).
Reviewing is single-blind, and the names and affiliations of the authors must appear in the submitted papers. Each paper will receive at least three reviews from members of the program committee. Submissions that do not respect the formatting requirement may be rejected without review.
