Book Description

Integrating Security and Software Engineering: Advances and Future Visions provides the first step towards narrowing the gap between security and software engineering. This book introduces the field of secure software engineering, which is a branch of research investigating the integration of security concerns into software engineering practices.

Integrating Security and Software Engineering: Advances and Future Visions discusses problems and challenges of considering security during the development of software systems, and also presents the predominant theoretical and practical approaches that integrate security and software engineering.

About the Author

Haralambos Mouratidis received a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Sheffield, UK. He is currently a lecturer at the University of East London, UK, and a visiting research fellow at the University College London. Dr. Mouratidis is the research champion for the software engineering and intelligent systems research theme of the Innovative Informatics group at the University of East London. He has published more than 30 articles in international refereed journals and conferences, and has co-initiated the international workshop series on Safety and Security in Multi-agent Systems. He has also been involved, as chair, program committee member, and reviewer, in the organization of international conferences such as CAiSE, IEEE/WI, IEEE/IAT, AOSE, SASEMAS, ICEIS, ICGeS, and AOIS.

Paolo Giorgini is a researcher at the University of Trento, Italy. He received his Ph.D. from the Computer Science Institute of the University of Ancona, Italy, in 1998. He joined the Mechanized Reasoning Group (MRG) at University of Trento in 1989 as pos-doc researcher. He was a visiting researcher at the Computer Science Department of University of Toronto, Canada, in 1998 and also held a visiting professorship at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia. He has worked on the development of requirements and design languages for agent-based systems, and the application of knowledge representation techniques to software repositories and software development. He is one of the founders of Tropos, an agent-based oriented software engineering methodology. His publication list includes more than 100 refereed journal and conference proceedings papers, along with five edited books. Dr. Giorgini has contributed to the organization of international conferences such as the University of East London as chair and program committee member. He is the co-editor in chief of the International Journal of Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (IJAOSE).
