Recent Advances in Software Security

The security of software has become crucial given the impact of the attacks on organizations, individuals, and communities. Despite the increased awareness and concerns about threats, current state of the art of software engineering practices are inadequate. Building blocks such as cryptography and protocols are necessary but not sufficient to ensure the security of software. There has been progress in developing methods and tools to engineer secure software and in empirically studying the domain to identify best practices and phenomena. EURASIP Journal on Information Security calls for a special issue on 'Recent Advances in Software Security'. This Special Issue aims to provide an international forum for both researchers and industrial practitioners to share the latest advances in the state of the art and practice of software security and to identify emerging research topics.
