The second workshop on analysis of security APIs (ASA-2) took place on 26th June 2008 as a satellite of CSF-2008 in Pittsburgh, USA.
Programme - with slides available for download
Security APIs allow untrusted code to access sensitive resources in a secure way. Security API analysis is an emerging field of computer security research. The aim of the ASA workshop is to bring together researchers working in security API analysis for a day of presentations and discussions.
The scope of ASA runs from theoretical results and formalisms for API analysis right through to applications and empirical results with security APIs deployed `in the field'. Applications of interest include (but are not limited to) financial applications (e.g. APIs of Hardware Security Modules), smartcard APIs, the Trusted Computing Architecture, and security APIs for web based systems.
