Security, Trust and Privacy in Computer Networks

Modern computer networks like IoT allow billions of devices in the physical world as well as virtual environments to exchange data with each other in an autonomous way, with the aim of creating smart environments such as automotive, healthcare, logistics, environmental monitoring, and many others. However, modern computer networks also introduce new challenges for the security and trust of systems and processes and the privacy of individuals. Protecting the information in modern computer networks is a complex and difficult task, i.e., modern networks are expected to provide global connectivity and accessibility, which results in that the number of attack vectors available to malicious attackers might become incredibly large. As a result, there is an increasing demand for development of new security, trust and privacy approaches to protect modern computer networks.

To address these issues and opportunities, this special issue invites original research that develops security, trust and privacy mechanisms for computer networks. The topics include but not limited to the followings.

  • Secure Data Management in computer networks
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention, Firewalls, Packet Filters
  • Malware, Botnets, and Distributed Denial of Service in networks
  • Communication Privacy and Anonymity
  • Forensics Techniques
  • Secure Routing in computer networks
  • Security & Privacy in Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing
  • Security & Privacy for IoT applications.
  • Incident Recovery in IoT Communication and Networks.

• Reliability of IoT Communication.
