“Mobile Networks and Devices Security, Privacy and Trust”

Mobile networks and devices are currently developing at a rapid pace. With the rapid growth of mobile users, how to protect mobile networks against various attacks has become a big challenge. Taking mobile devices as an example, these devices are tiny, and users may lose them easily. In addition, these devices are very attractive to thieves because of their popularity and resale value. In recent years, security experts have predicted the rise of malware and attacks on mobile networks and devices. As a result, there is an increasing need for secure solutions to protect users' sensitive and private information in the mobile environment.

This special issue will focus on mobile context and aims to solicit original research papers that discuss the security, privacy and trust of mobile networks and devices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
The goal of this special issue is to collect high-quality contributions to address the security, privacy and trust concerns for mobile networks and devices. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the ones listed below.
