6th Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution (SysTEX 2023)
May 8th, 2023
The 6th Workshop on System Software for Trusted Execution (SysTEX) will focus on systems research challenges related to TEEs, and explore new ideas and strategies for the implementation of trustworthy systems with TEEs. The goal of the workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion among researchers and practitioners in this field. The rise of new processor hardware extensions that permit fine-grained and flexible trusted execution, such as Intel's SGX, ARM's TrustZone, or AMD's SEV-SNP, introduces numerous novel challenges and opportunities for developers of secure applications. There is a burning need for cross-cutting systems support of such Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) that spans all the layers of the software stack, from the OS through runtime to compilers and programming models. Furthermore, there is a number of new hardware extensions soon market available such as ARM CCA, Intel TDX or NVIDIA Confidential Computing that will further push the research field of trusted execution.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
The goal of the workshop is to foster collaboration and discussion among researchers and practitioners in this field. The workshop will be one full day. The program should primarily include presentations by authors of accepted papers (the workshop will have proceedings in the ACM digital library). The other elements will be 1-3 invited presentations and a panel ending the day with an open discussion.
SysTEX welcomes submissions in two formats:
All submissions should be in PDF and must follow the ACM SIGPLAN format (http://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template).
Reviewing is single-blind, and the names and affiliations of the authors must appear in the submitted papers. Each paper will receive at least three reviews from members of the program committee. Submissions that do not respect the formatting requirement may be rejected without review.
