*********** CALL FOR PAPER **************

The 8th Software Security, Protection, and
	Reverse Engineering Workshop



Co-Located with ACSAC-2018
Venue: https://www.acsac.org/
Workshop: http://www.ssprew.org/
December 3—4, 2018
Condado Plaza Hilton
San Juan, Puerto Rico, USA

website: http://www.pprew.org/

SSPREW brings together communities that focus on program protection and
software security. Software security is a discipline that lies at the
crossroads of security, cryptography, networks, software engineering,
computer architecture, operating systems, and compiler design. Program
protection and reverse engineering techniques both find their practical
use in malware research and analysis as well as legitimate protection
schemes for intellectual property and commercial software. The workshop
will focus on how to protect software from tampering, reverse
engineering, and piracy as well as techniques of program analysis that
support reversing engineering and program understanding.

SSPREW provides a discussion forum for researchers that are exploring
theoretical definitions and frameworks, implementing and using practical
methods and empirical studies, and those developing new tools or
techniques in this unique area of security. The workshop has
historically provided exchange of ideas and support for cooperative
relationships among researchers in industry, academia, and government.
