Special Issue on: "Cyberspace Safety and Security"

Guest Editors:

Cyberspace safety and security has gained tremendous attention due to the rapid development of computer technology. It is an interdisciplinary area that focuses on maintaining and reducing risks to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and resources in computer and network systems.

Related research covers all of the processes and mechanisms by which computer-based equipment, information and services are protected from unintended or unauthorised access, change or destruction.

This special issue seeks original high quality papers presenting cutting edge research and applications relating to the authentication, access control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability issues of cyberspace.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 5th International Symposium on Cyberspace Safety and Security (CSS 2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
