Scope and Topics of Interest:
The Communications and Information Systems Security Symposium (CISS) will
on all aspects of security, privacy, trust, and risk management, which pose
serious challenge to today's globally connected society. The symposium
novel contributions on evaluation, modeling, analysis, and design of
and information systems security solutions, from the physical layer to the
application layer. In addition, this year’s CISS puts a stronger emphasis
network oriented security and privacy, such as security related topics of
computing, networking related security in Big Data, IoT, and so on.

To ensure complete coverage of the advances in communication and
systems security, the topics of interest of the CISS include, but are not
limited to, the following areas:
- Anonymity, anonymous communication, metrics and their performance analysis

- Authentication protocols and message authentication
