Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks and Its Security

Call for Papers:

Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) consists of many small sensor nodes with sensing, computing, communicating, and control capabilities. Due to its configuration flexibility and lower deployment cost, wireless sensor networks have become the most popular communication network today.

Through WSNs, we are able to bridge the physical world and the cyber space, which composes the foundation for developing new smart applications. Many potential applications of WSNs have been exploited in the fields of healthcare, industry, smart cities, smart home, and intelligent transportation, etc. For the realization of these applications, sensor networks represent a key component for the collection and exchange of large volumes of data through heterogeneous network technologies in the context of the well-known Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.

However, the massive deployment of WSNs in our daily lives entails an increase of cybersecurity risks. During its practical application, WSNs are prone to different types of malicious attacks. Traditional cryptographic schemes may not be sufficient to prevent such emerging attacks encountered in WSNs. Providing satisfactory security protection in WSNs has always been a challenging task. Emerging technologies can be utilized to proceed the development of security solutions for WSNs, such as the use of blockchain, distributed artificial intelligence techniques, federated learning, etc.

The proposed special issue aims to develop a comprehensive vision and gather recent advances on the applications and security of WSNs. The contributions should address, but are not limited to, the following research topics:

Topics:
- Novel architectures, protocols and algorithms for WSNs security
- Data fusion in WSNs based on deep learning
- Cloud/fog/edge computing security
- AI-based security and privacy
- Access control and authorization
- Design, optimization and modeling of WSNs management systems
- Database and system security
- Node localization algorithm in WSNs
- Intrusion detection systems for WSNs based on federated learning
- Blockchain-based approaches to improve WSNs security
- Lightweight cryptography for WSNs
- Security attacks, vulnerabilities and countermeasures in WSNs
