Secure computation is becoming a key feature of future information systems. Distributed network applications and cloud architectures are at danger because lots of personal consumer data is aggregated in all kinds of formats and for various purposes. Industry and consumer electronics companies are facing massive threats like theft of intellectual property and industrial espionage. Public infrastructure has to be secured against sabotage and manipulation. A possible solution is encrypted computing: Data can be processed on remote, possibly insecure resources, while program code and data is encrypted all the time. This allows to outsource the computation of confidential information independently from the trustworthiness or the security level of the remote system. The technologies and techniques discussed in this workshop are a key to extend the range of applications that can be securely outsourced.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers with practitioners and industry to present, discuss and to share the latest progress in the field. We want to exchange ideas that address real-world problems with practical approaches and solutions.
