<Call for Papers>

In the past decades, the evolution of wireless technologies has brought
significant changes in modern communication networks through its
wireless extension of wired networks. Wireless communications offer
organizations and users many benefits such as portability and
flexibility, increased productivity, and lower installation costs.
However, risks are inherent in any wireless network. As the technologies
of next generation wireless networks are emerging, security has become a
primary concern in order to provide dependable and secure communication
between the wireless nodes in a hostile environment. The next generation
wireless networks face many unique challenges in security such as open
network architecture, shared wireless medium, limited resource
constraints, and highly dynamic network topology. This special issue in
Security and Communication Networks will present current research
focusing on the standard or protocol related security, attacks and
defense applications, security architecture and frameworks, and theories
and methodologies in security in next generation wireless networks.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Standard or Protocol Related Security
*	Bluetooth Security
*	RFID Security and Privacy
*	Secure PHY, MAC, Routing and Upper Layer Protocols
*	Security in 3G/4G Mobile Cellular Systems
*	Security in IEEE 802.11-based Networks
*	Security in WiMax networks
*	Security Issues in All-IP Wireless Networking
Attacks and Defense Applications
*	Denial-of-Service Attacks and Countermeasures
*	Large-scale Attacks and Defense in Wireless Networks
*	Security in Wireless Multimedia systems
*	Wireless Intelligent Defense Systems
*	Wireless Intrusion Detection Systems 
*	Wireless Network Forensics
*	Viruses, Worms, and Other Malicious Code in Wireless Networks
Security Architecture and Frameworks
*	Security Architecture for Next Generation Wireless Networks
*	Security for Critical Next Generation Infrastructures
*	Security in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks
*	Wireless Sensor Network Security
*	WLAN, WPAN, and WMAN Security
Theories and Methodologies
*	Access Control and Trust Management in Wireless Networks
*	Benchmark, Analysis and Evaluation of Security in Wireless
*	Identity Management and Authentication in Wireless Networks
*	Key Management in Wireless Networks
*	Security Simulation and Tools in Wireless Networks
*	Security Theory and Tools in Wireless Network Systems
