Knowledge  management is the methodology  for  systematically
gathering,   organizing,  and  disseminating  knowledge.   It
essentially  consists of processes and tools  to  effectively
capture  and share knowledge as well as use the knowledge  of
individuals  within  an  organization.  Knowledge  Management
Systems (KMS) promote sharing information among employees and
require  security  mechanisms to prevent unauthorized  access
and  misuse. Security is a major issue revolving around  KMS.
The  Secure  Knowledge  Management  Workshop  aims  to  raise
awareness  of  academics and practitioners in  this  critical
area  of  research  by  presenting papers  containing  ideas,
directions,  and  questions that need to be  tackled  by  the
research community, as well as traditional scientific  papers
presenting results.
