Brief Description

The aim of this workshop is to address security and performance issues. Security and performances are generally conflicting. So, providing high performance security solutions is a challenging objective.

This workshop addresses relationships between security and high performance systems in two directions. First, it considers how to add security properties (authentication, confidentiality, integrity, non-repudiation, access control) to high performance computing systems. In this case, safety properties can also be addressed such as availability, fault tolerance for high performance computing systems. Second, it covers how to use high performance systems to solve security problems. For instance, a grid computation can break an encryption code, or a cluster can support high performance intrusion detection. More generally, this topic addresses every efficient use of a high performance computing system to improve security.

In all these directions, various performance analyses or monitoring techniques can be conducted to show the efficiency of a security infrastructure.
