As the World Wide Web has grown to become an essential part of our
lives, security and privacy have become essential requirements without
which the Web cannot function. Security and privacy technologies are
fundamental to the successful conduct of most Web transactions and
they must be suitable to be used by a highly diverse population of
users. At the same time, the sheer success of Web-based transactions
and services have made them a ripe target for abuse by hostile
parties, who aim to exploit both technical and human failures. This
track offers a forum to discuss the notions of security, privacy,
trust, and abuse on the Web, and to present research advances in these

Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):
* Human and usability factors in Web security & privacy
* Measurement, analysis, and circumvention of Web censorship
* Authentication, authorization, and auditing on the Web
* Access control, rights management, and security of social content
* Anomaly detection and monitoring methods
* Negative content filtering: spam, abuse, fake reviews, etc.
* Browser security issues, including attacks, defenses, and policy models
* Large scale malware defense
* Analysis of large scale attacks against the Web
* Privacy-enhancing technologies, including anonymity, pseudonymity
and identity management, specifically for the Web
* Legal, ethical, policy issues of Web security and privacy
* Dealing with client-side risks
* Content protection (e.g., DRM)
* Abuse on the Web (e.g., Web/blog spam)
* Security for Web services (e.g., blogs, Web feed, wikis, social networks)
* Applications of cryptography to the web, including PKI and
supporting concepts like digital signatures, certification, etc.
* Electronic commerce, particularly security mechanisms for e-cash,
auctions, payment, and fraud detection
* Security and privacy issues in search, advertising, and mining of
the Web and social networks
* Results, and lessons learned, of sound experiments aiming at
assessing the (in)security of the Web-based ecosystem
* Online crime/underground economics
