Dear colleagues, 

we extended the deadline for the Workshop on DevSecOps Research and Opportunities (DevSecOpsRO) that will be held in conjunction with EuroS&P 2023 as a pre-conference workshop on July 3rd 2023.

Security should not be treated as an add-on to software products; rather, it should be deeply integrated within the whole Software Development Life-Cycle (SDLC). The need for this integration and the design of suitable methodologies to make agile software development secure are paving their way in the security community. In this context, we often refer to DevSecOps or SecDevOps when discussing security integration in agile software production. Recently, players such as NIST, Google, OWASP, and the Cloud Security Alliance proposed their frameworks for secure software development. However, this provides only an initial step towards tackling the challenges related to the security of the many and iterated steps of SDLC.

Machine learning and AI can play a crucial role in DevSecOps as they can be used to analyse large amounts of data, including network traffic and system logs, to identify potential security threats, monitor system behaviour and identify anomalies that may indicate a security breach. By using machine learning in DevSecOps, organisations can more effectively detect and respond to security threats and improve their overall security posture. Moreover, they can be used in an automated way to interweave security in existing DevOps pipelines.

Scope and topics: With this workshop, we aim to attract novel contributions to the secure SDLC to foster the creation of more conscious, robust, resilient, and advanced methodologies to prevent security issues at the different stages of the development pipeline. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Paper submission deadline: Mar. 31, 2023

Notification of acceptance: Apr. 30, 2023

Final papers: May 15, 2023

Looking forward to seeing you at EuroS&P 2023!
