Outsourcing has become a global industry. While this practice may be acceptable to commercial enterprises, it poses a serious security threat, especially if the new software is destined for a major critical infrastructure. There are two potential problems: software may contain code that has malicious intent (called malware) or suffer from poor coding practices that leave software vulnerable to exploitation.

This conference was aimed is to increase awareness of the security-related issues required to strengthen the R&D and standardization of unclassified cyber security research results required for improvement in multinational trade, outsourcing and academics. IUSSTF supported the participation of 5 American experts. The proceedings of this conference have been published by Springer Verlag as lecture notes in Computer Sciences. The conference also provided valuable inputs to the Indo-US working group on ‘R & D in Cyber Security’.
