Subject Coverage

Cryptography has been playing an important role to ensure the security and reliability of modern computer systems. Since high speed and broad bandwidth have been becoming the keywords for modern computer systems, new cryptographic methods and tools must follow up in order to adapt to these new and emerging technologies. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for security researchers to present their newly developed cryptographic technologies in computer systems. Areas of interest for this special journal issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Authentication
  • Cryptographic algorithms and their applications
  • Cryptanalysis
  • Email security
  • Electronic commerce
  • Data integrity
  • Fast cryptographic algorithms and their applications
  • Identity-based cryptography
  • IP security
  • Key management
  • Multicast security
  • Computer network security
  • Privacy protection
  • Security in Peer-to-Peer networks
  • Security in sensor networks
  • Smartcards

Paper Submission

The submission must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. The length of the submission should be at most 25 pages including bibliography and appendices. It should use at least 11-point fonts and have reasonable sized margins. Please submit full papers in PDF via the submission system (iChair): Submitted papers must not be previously published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. Extended papers from previously published conference papers are welcome. Accepted papers should not exceed 20 single spaced pages in JUCS style. All manuscripts will be blindly reviewed by a least three referees. Original artwork and a signed copy of the copyright release form will be required for all accepted papers.
