Cryptography plays a key role in network security.
Advances of cryptography can make
computer networks more secure.
Computer technologies have been pushing forward computer
networks for high speed and broad bandwidth.
Therefore, new cryptographic methods and tools must
follow up in order to adapt to these new technologies.
Recent attacks on computer networks, especially on IEEE 802.11 and IEEE 802.15,
are increasing, since
underlying radio communication medium for wireless network provides serious exposure to
attacks against wireless networks.
Security must be enforced to suit the emerging technologies.
This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for
security researchers to present their newly developed cryptographic
technologies in network security. Areas of interest for
this special journal issue include, but are not limited to, the following
- Ad hoc network security
- Anonymity in networks
- Authentication in network and wireless systems
- Cryptographic algorithms and their applications to network security
- Cryptanalysis of network security schemes
- Encryption in network and wireless systems
- Email security
- Data integrity
- Fast cryptographic algorithms and their applications
- Identity-based cryptography in network and mobile applications
- IP security
- Key management
- Multicast security
- Mobile and wireless system security
- Privacy protection
- Security group communications
- Security in internet and WWW
- Security in Peer-to-Peer networks
- Secure routing protocols
- Security in sensor networks
