About these proceedings
This volume contains the papers presented at the 22nd Annual IFIP WG 11.3 Working Conference on Data and Applications Security (DBSEC) held in L- don, UK, July 13–16, 2008. This year’s working conference continued its tra- tion of being a forum for disseminating original research results and practical experiences in data and applications security. This year we had an excellent program that consists of 9 research paper s- sions with 22 high-quality research papers, which were selected from a total of 56 submissions after a rigorous reviewing process by the Program Committee members and external reviewers. These sessions included such topics as access control, privacy, auditing, systems security and data security in advanced app- cation domains. In addition, the programincluded a keynote address, an invited talk and a panel session. The success of this conference was a result of the e?orts of many people. I would like to extend my appreciation to the Program Committee members and external reviewers for their hard work.
