FAST 2004 is affiliated with 18th IFIP World Computer Congress(WCC2004) and sponsored by IFIP WG 1.7 "Theoretical Foundations of Security Analysis and Design"
The complexity and scale of deployment of emerging ICT systems based on web service and grid computing concepts also necessitates the investigation of new, scalable and more flexible foundational models of enforcing pervasive security across organizational borders and in situations where there is high uncertainty about the identity and trustworthyness of the participating networked entities (including users, services and resources). The increasing need of building activities sharing different resources managed with different policies demands for new and business enabling models of trust between members of virtual communities including virtual organizations that span across the boundaries of physical enterprises and loosely structured communities of individuals.
