4th International Workshop on Evolving Security & Privacy Requirements Engineering Workshop (ESPRE 2017)
co-located with 25th IEEE International Requirements Engineering Conference
4-5 September 2017 (day to be confirmed) - Lisbon, Portugal


When specifying a system, security and privacy needs to be addressed as early as possible.  Unfortunately, many people find doing so difficult in the face of conflicting priorities.  When these concerns are addressed, we discover how intrinsically difficult specifying security and privacy can be, and the blurred distinction between requirements and security and privacy concepts.

The Evolving Security and Privacy Requirements Engineering (ESPRE) Workshop is a multi-disciplinary, one-day workshop. It brings together practitioners and researchers interested in security and privacy requirements.  ESPRE probes the interfaces between Requirements Engineering and Security & Privacy, and aims to evolve security and privacy requirements engineering to meet the needs of stakeholders; these range from business analysts and security engineers, to technology entrepreneurs and privacy advocates.


Topics addressed by ESPRE are those which will promote discussion about advancing Security & Privacy Requirements Engineering.  These include, but are not excluded to:

- Adaptation of security & privacy requirements
- Elicitation and analysis techniques
- Evolution of security & privacy requirements
- Legal compliance in security & privacy RE
- Leveraging Domain knowledge
- Modelling trust and risk
- Ontologies for security & privacy RE
- Scalability of security RE approaches
- Security & privacy RE and [Sec]DevOps
- Security & privacy RE for design innovation
- Security & privacy RE education
- Security & privacy RE processes
- Stakeholder & Attacker perspectives
- Studies applying security & privacy RE
- Validation & verification

We are particularly interested in submissions that align with this year’s RE conference theme of “Desperately Seeking Less: The Role of Simplicity and Complementarity in Requirements”.  In the past year, the ‘post truth’ culture has become pervasive in many walks of life.  As a corollary, there is a move to making design decisions based on appeals to emotion and gut-feeling rather than evidence-based reasoning.  This presents opportunities and challenges to Requirements Engineering.  By focusing on less and appealing to emotion, we can engage otherwise disengaged stakeholders in security and privacy issues.  However, such appeals might benefit attackers as well as engineers, so there is a need for simplicity and complementarity without sacrificing the assurance expectations stakeholders have in their systems.


We invite research and position papers that address any of the workshop topics.   Papers should be no more than 6 pages, conform to the IEEE Conference Publishing Services, and submitted electronically in PDF format to EasyChair:

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, and made available via IEEE Xplore.
