This volume contains the proceedings of the second working conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools, and Experiments, VSTTE 2008, held in Toronto, Canada, in October 2008. The 16 papers presented together with 4 invited talks were carefully revised and selected for inclusion in the book. This second conference formally inaugurates the Verified Software Initiative (VSI), a fifteen-year, co-operative, international project directed at the scientific challenges of large-scale software verification. The scope of the cooperative effort includes the sharing and interoperability of tools, the alignment of theory and practice, the identification of challenge problems, the construction of benchmark suites, and the execution of large-scale experiments.
Software engineering has over the years been applied in many different fields, ranging from telecommunications to embedded systems in car and aircraft industry as well as in production engineering and computer networks. Foundations in software technology lie in models allowing to capture application domains, detailed requirements, but also to understand the structure and working of software systems like software architectures and programs. These models have to be expressed in techniques based on discrete mathematics, algebra and logics. However, according to the very specific needs in applications of software technology, formal methods have to serve the needs and the quality of advanced software engineering methods, especially taking into account security aspects in Information Technology. This book presents mathematical foundations of software engineering and state-of-the-art engineering methods in their theoretical substance in the step towards practical applications to examine software engineering techniques and foundations used for industrial tasks. The contributions in this volume emerged from lectures of the 25th International Summer School on Engineering Theories of Software Intensive Systems, held at Marktoberdorf, Germany from August 3 to August 15, 2004.

As a consequence of the wide distribution of software and software infrastructure, information security and safety depend on the quality and excellent understanding of its functioning. Only if this functionality is guaranteed as safe, customer and information are protected against adversarial attacks and malfunction. A vast proportion of information exchange is dominated by computer systems. Due to the fact that technical systems are more or less interfaced with software systems, most information exchange is closely related to software and computer systems.
The International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Security (CIS) is an annualinternationalconference that bringstogether researchers, engineers, developers and practitioners from both academia and industry to share expe- ence and exchange and cross-fertilize ideas on all areas of computational - telligence and information security. The conference serves as a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art research and the development, and implem- tationsof systems, technologiesandapplicationsinthese two broad, interrelated ?elds. This year CIS 2005 was co-organized by the IEEE (Hong Kong) Com- tational Intelligence Chapter and Xidian University, and co-sponsored by Hong Kong Baptist University, National Natural Science Foundation of China, Key Laboratory of Computer Networks and Information Security of the Ministry of EducationofChina, andGuangdongUniversityofTechnology.

This reference book serves the needs of professionals, academics, and students requiring dedicated information systems free from outside interference, as well as developers of secure IS applications. This book is part of the Advances in Information Security, Privacy, and Ethics series collection.
"Information security covers the protection of information against unauthorized disclosure, transfer, modification, and destruction, whether accidentally or intentionally. Quality of life in general and of individual citizens, and the effectiveness of the economy critically depends on our ability to build software in a transparent and efficient way. Furthermore, we must be able to enhance the software development process systematically in order to ensure software's safety and security. This, in turn, requires very high software reliability, i.e., an extremely high confidence in the ability of the software to perform flawlessly. Foundations of software technology provide models that enable us to capture application domains and their requirements, but also to understand the structure and working of software systems and software architectures. Based on these foundations tools allow to prove and ensure the correctness of software's functioning. New developments must pay due diligence to the importance of security-related aspects, and align current methods and techniques to information security, integrity, and system reliability. The articles in this book describe the state-of-the-art ideas on how to meet these challenges in software engineering."
"This book provides a compendium of terms, definitions, and explanations of concepts in various areas of systems and design, as well as a vast collection of cutting-edge research articles from the field's leading experts"--Provided by publisher.
