Scope and Objective

The rapid development of data collection and network communication technology has led the "information age" towards a new and exciting stage. With the dramatic increase of network information resources, re-searchers and practitioners from more diverse disciplines than ever before are confronted with issues such as how to make secure and effective interactions among various resources. For example, Google Map suc-cessfully connects and integrates multiple resources such as traffic, accommodations etc. Actually most network applications are involved with an interaction among resources, and the underlying data exchange forms a detailed map of information propagation.

Recently, the security issue of information propagation attracts significant research interest, and much work on security-related protection and evaluation have been proposed. There are mainly two factors influencing the security: one is from the network characteristics (e.g. the packet loss) and the protocol flaw (e.g. DNS); while the other one comes from user behaviors, which can be further classified as malicious behavior and normal behavior. To study these complex behaviors, behavior analysis has been discussed by computer scientists, psychology and ethic researchers in recent years. More specially, behavior analysis arises as an inter-disciplinary domain including Behavior Representation, Modeling, Analysis and Management, which aims to develop techniques and practical tools for describing behaviors via formal representation and quan-titative analysis. Actually, user behavior has great relevance to security. Studying security issues from the perspective of user behavior, indicates the timely need of
developing advanced, formal and general method-ologies and techniques for network information propagation.

This FGCS special issue aims to foster Behavior Data Security through high quality research in methods, theo-ries, techniques and tools for advancing the network information propagation. In particular, this special issue will discuss the most recent research in the behavior analysis and security-related technologies of any net-work applications. Original research articles are solicited in all aspects of including theoretical studies, practical applications, new communication technology and experimental prototypes. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and their relevance to the theme of this special issue.
