Preface. The new emerging technologies put new requirements on security and data management. As data are accessible anytime anywhere, it becomes much easier to get 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 problems range from traditional topics, such as, access control and general database security, via privacy protection to new research directions, such as cryptographically 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 Program Committee 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 first section 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 confidence policy compliant query evaluation. The second section changes the focal point to the topic of access control. The papers in this section 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. We wish to thank all the authors of submitted papers for their high-quality submissions. We would also like to thank the Program Committee members as well as additional referees for doing an excellent review job. Finally, let us acknowledge Luan Ibraimi who helped in the technical preparation of the proceedings.
