Special Issue on Emerging Research on Wireless Network Security
Rapid advances in wireless communications and networking technologies are gradually making the dream of ubiquitous high-speed network access a reality. Unlike the wired networks, the unique characteristics of mobile networks pose a number of nontrivial challenges to security design, such as open peer-to-peer network architecture, shared wireless medium, stringent resource constraints, highly dynamic network topology, and absence of a trusted infrastructure. Ubiquitous roaming impacts on a radio access system by requiring that it supports handover between neighboring cells and different networks. Also, mobile networks are more exposed to interferences than wired networks. Such ubiquitous network access allows vandals and criminals to exploit vulnerabilities in networked systems on a widespread basis. This situation makes security and privacy designs for emerging wireless networks both critical and challenging. As a result, we need to build wireless systems and networks in which various applications allow users to enjoy more comprehensive services while preserving trust, security and privacy at the same time.
This Special Issue aims to identifying and exploring different issues and challenges related to security aspects in Wireless Networks. This covers Analysis of existing wireless network security models, Impacts (benefits & troubles) of wireless network security in today’s world. Proposed models for better security. Applications and case study on Wireless Network Security & Privacy management.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Models for wireless networks security
• Secure mobile PHY/MAC protocols
• Algorithms for wireless networks Security
• Secure mobile-routing protocols
• Privacy management for wireless networks
• Security under resource constraints
• Cross-layer design for trust, security and privacy in wireless networks
• Secure roaming across administrative domains
• Economics of wireless network security
• Trust establishment, negotiation, and management
• Privacy and anonymity of Wireless Network
• Key management in wireless networks
• Threat and vulnerability analysis for mobile communication
• Cryptographic protocols for Wireless Network Security
• Authentication and access control in mobile networks
• Intrusion detection and tolerance in Wireless Network
• Denial of service in Wireless networks
• Case study of Wireless Network Security
