Current networking and distributed systems are highly vulnerable and can be easily compromised by attacks. Research on secure computing and communication has gained more and more attention and its major goal is to make systems measurable, available, sustainable, secure and trustworthy. The Eighth International Symposium on Security in Computing and Communications (SSCC’20) aims to provide the most relevant opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry to exchange their knowledge and discuss their research findings. The proceedings of previous editions have been indexed by Scopus and DBLP.
