The new emergingtechnologiesput new requirementsonsecurityanddata m- agement.Asdataareaccessibleanytimeanywhere,itbecomesmucheasiertoget unauthorized data access. Furthermore, the use of new technologies has brought some privacy concerns. It becomes simpler to collect, store, and search personal information thereby endangering people's privacy. Therefore, research in secure data management is gaining importance, attracting the attention of both the data management and the security research communities. The interesting pr- lems range from traditional topics, such as, access control and general database security, via privacy protection to new research directions, such as cryptogra- ically enforced access control and encrypted databases. This year, the call for papers attracted 24 papers both from universities and industry. For presentation at the workshop,the ProgramCommittee selected 10 full papers (41% acceptance rate). These papers are collected in this volume, which we hope will serve as a useful research and reference material. The papers in the proceeding are grouped into three sections. The ?rst s- tion focuses on database security which remains an important research area. The papers in this section address several interesting topics including query optimization in encrypted databases, database provenance, database intrusion detection, and con?dence policy compliant query evaluation. The second section changes the focal point to the topic of access control. The papers in this s- tion deal with provenance access control, access control model for collaborative editors, self-modifying access control policies, and enforcing access control on XML documents. The third section focuses on privacy protection addressing the privacy issues around location-based services and anonymity/diversity for the micro-data release problem.
th The 8 International Workshop on Digital Watermarking (IWDW 2009) was hosted by the University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey, UK, during August 24 26, 2009.As with previous workshops, IWDW 2009 aimed to providea balanced program covering the latest state-of-the-art theoretical and practical devel- ments in digital watermarking, steganography and steganalysis, and the eme- ing area of image forensics. The selection of the program was a challenging task for the Technical Programme Committee members and reviewers, who ensured the highest quality and reputation of the workshop. From around 50 submissions received from authors in 14 countries, the c- mittee selected 26 regular papers (22 oral and 4 poster presentations). In - dition to the contributed papers, the workshop featured three keynote lectures on watermarking, cryptography and forensics kindly delivered by internati- ally renowned experts, Ingemar Cox, Fred Piper and Ed Delp, respectively. The regular papers and keynote lectures can be found in this proceedings volume. First of all, we would like to thank all the authors, speakers, reviewers and participants for their signi?cant contributions to the success of IWDW 2009."
