Book Title: Protecting Mobile Networks and Devices: Challenges and Solutions
To be published by CRC Press - Taylor & Francis

Nowadays, mobile networks and devices are developing at a rapid pace. For example, mobile phone shipments were expected to reach 1.9 billion units in 2014; a 3.1% increase from 2013. It is predicted that there will be more than 4 billion app users worldwide in 2017. With the rapid growth of mobile users, how to protect mobile networks against various attacks has become a big question. For years, security experts have predicted the rise of mobile attacks and malware. Therefore, the need for secure solutions in the mobile environment is increasing.

Objective of the book:
Mobile networks and related devices (e.g., phones or tablets) are an increasingly significant target for various attacks. Thus, the aim of this book is to gather and analyze the latest attacks, solutions and trends relating to mobile security in both academia and industry. Its scope includes mobile networks, mobile phone security, and wireless security.

Recommended Topics
This book welcomes chapters on a wide range of issues related to mobile networks and devices, including all aspects of attacks and solutions. Indicative topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Intrusion detection and prevention schemes for mobile networks
- Tracing back mobile attackers
- Secure routing and access control
- Mobile authentication mechanisms
- Security testing of new or existing usability features,
- Agent based intrusion surveillance
- Wireless Access Technologies
- Multimedia security issues for tackling intruders

We welcome both surveys and technical chapters presenting novel analytical research, simulations, practical results and case studies.
