Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Various aspects of the security of wireless communications are extremely important for the successful operation and widespread adoption of modern information technologies. Wireless communications have special requirements and vulnerabilities, and therefore are of special concern. In particular, wireless networks are vulnerable to malicious attacks and the number of potential threats has been increasing dramatically. Recently, considerable novel challenges have emerged in view of the rapid growth of advanced applications of wireless communications in commercial and industrial domains embracing Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things. In order to overcome these challenges, it is vitally important to develop a range of novel approaches as well as sophisticated combinations of useful and efficient security techniques. Relevant security measures include data encryption and device and user authentication. Privacy-preserving data mining is also essential for secure analysis of the big data pertaining to wireless communications,

The main aim of this Special Issue is to encourage submissions proposing novel solutions strengthening the security of wireless communications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Authentication;
  • Cryptosystems;
  • Data privacy;
  • Homomorphic encryption;
  • Lightweight cryptography;
  • Privacy-preserving data mining;
  • RFID security;
  • Wireless sensor networks.
