Developments in Security and Privacy-preserving mechanisms for Future Mobile Communication Networks

The advances in wireless communication technologies toward 4G networks and the wide use of mobile devices have enabled users to communicate with each other and receive a wide range of mobile wireless services through various types of access networks and systems everywhere, anytime. However, the always-connected mobile device usage model brings to the foreground new security and privacy issues for both the end-user and network/service provider. For example, such a multi-domain and heterogeneous environment poses serious threats to the end-user who has contract with and trusts only a limited number of operators and service providers. In this respect, secure, reliable, and privacy-preserving communications combined with constant network availability are essential factors for the adoption of any service or application that utilize wireless technologies. Also, the tight-coupling of these wireless network domains to the Internet make them more susceptible to attacks. New security challenges emerge constantly due to the open nature of the wireless medium, the dynamic network topology, the lack of common security/privacy policy used by network operators, the resource constraints of the mobile devices and, in some cases, the lack of a pre-deployed infrastructure.
The objective of this special issue is to foster state-of-the-art contributions in the area of security, privacy, and its applications for future mobile communication networks. In particular, our focus will be on network layer security with the intention to address all aspects of the modeling, designing, implementation, assessment, deployment and management of mobile network security and privacy-preserving mechanisms, protocols and architectures. We encourage original and high quality contributions to the evaluation, enhancement of security and privacy-preserving mechanisms for current mobile technologies as well as novel proposals for efficient security and privacy solutions of emerging mobile and wireless technologies. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

- Lightweight Security Infrastructure
- IMS security and privacy issues
- Privacy and anonymity
- Intrusion detection and avoidance
- Modularized security architectures and implementations
- Threat and vulnerability modeling
- Lightweight AAA infrastructures
- Privacy and Security Compliance
- Security issues related to mobility in heterogeneous networks
- Security of mesh networks
- Trust establishment, negotiation, and management
- Secure Multicast/Broadcast Service
- Lightweight cryptography
- Cross Layer approach to security
- Key agreement, distribution and management
- Trusted Platform Modules
- Access control management systems
- Privacy-preserving location-based services
- Secure social networking for mobile devices
- Biometric solutions for mobile devices
- Security and privacy for QR codes
- Reputation management models
- Secure mobile ecosystems
- Formal security verification methods

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by at least two experts in the field and evaluated with respect to relevance to the special issue, level of innovation, depth of contributions, and quality of presentation. Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases. Submitted papers must not be under consideration by any other journal or publication.
