The amount of sensitive data being transmitted over open environments is growing at an unprecedented pace. Information security is given more importance in data storage and transmission. Due to the privacy issues involved in data and fund transfers, security is a widespread and growing concern that covers all areas of society: business, domestic, financial, government and so on. Besides algorithm reliability, the speed, performance and implementation flexibility are also considered as major factors for improvement in implementing a network security algorithm.

This special issue aims to serve as a forum in which to unite academics, researchers, practitioners and students in the field of network security. We welcome submissions presenting technical, experimental, methodological and/or applicative contributions, addressing the topics below.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Security architectures
  • Security and privacy methods and models (requirements, analysis, design, testing)
  • Security in software development (agile, architecture, design, deployment, aspect-oriented, model-driven, threat-driven)
  • Component-based, aspect-oriented, agent-based, pattern-based information system security methods
  • Security engineering for specific information systems (e-services, databases, mobile, internet, social networks)
  • Security management and assessment
  • Security in cloud computing
  • Security in databases and data warehouses
  • Security for mobile computing, multimedia systems
  • Security ontology/taxonomy design
  • Semantic web technologies applied to security
  • Security in software product lines
  • Distributed and network security
  • Security and trust models
