Kick-Off: RESCUE 2017 Workshop on Reliability, Security and Quality (May 2017)

RESCUE ETN co-organizes the Workshop on Reliability, Security and Quality - RESCUE at the IEEE European Test Symposium on May 25-26, 2017 in Limassol, Cyprus. 

Relationship between reliability, quality and security is contradictory: despite pursuing the same goal, i.e. the safe and correct operation of a computing system, they start from completely different assumptions. Quality and reliability address technical errors occurring during design and manufacturing of the computing system and along its lifetime, while security aims at defeating malicious attempts of altering the normal behavior of the system. These design aspects set mutual constraints and contradicting requirements, nevertheless techniques from one discipline can be successfully applied to the other (e.g., fault tolerance to counteract fault injection attacks). Eventually, designers should guarantee the correct operation of the system, regardless of origin of the malfunctioning, i.e. being it malicious or technical. In this context, it is essential that designers are aware of the complete picture, and that researchers from these interdependent disciplines meet and exchange ideas and challenges. The RESCUE workshop establishes an open forum bringing together the security community with the reliability, testing and verification communities to encourage fruitful discussions and collaborations involving researchers from both academic and industrial sectors. The workshop targets at designers of hardware and software layers of computing systems.

The highlights of the event are keynotes and invited talks from distinguished experts, oral and poster presentation of peer-reviewed contributions from the community and a Wine&Cheese Panel organized jointly with the the parallel ETS 2017 Fringe Workshop TESTA. 

The workshop will be followed by the RESCUE ETN Kick-Off Management Meeting (same venue, 16:45-20:00, Friday, May 26, 2017).
