Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue aims at bringing together contributions of researchers and practitioners working in the areas of system security and dependability in relation with the Internet of the things. Many systems are highly connected and distributed over the internet. These systems require innovative policies, trust enforcement and reliable infrastructures to provide safe software services. This special issue focuses on all aspect of security and reliability of such connected systems. These aspects remain in relation with a wide range of other topics such as programming languages, operating systems, middlewares, intrusion detection, evaluation and measure, architecture setup, transactions, visualization. These topics and their particular relations with the security of connected systems are the main interests of this special issue.

This special issue also publishes selected contributions from the 3SL workshop (http://www.univ-orleans.fr/lifo/evenements/3SL/index.php). The 3SL worshop is collocated with IEEE iThings'12 which focuses on the Internet of Things. The authors of the best papers presented at the 3SL workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their paper to this special issue.
