We, the end-users, always prefer not to spend more on resource utilisation, storage and administration. Also, we like to share resources with our fellow members. Ultimately this leads to networking. When networking plays a vital role in different forms, broadly wired and wireless, security is an inevitable issue.

Security attacks can arise from multiple sources. The attacker need not be a competitor or a foe, he or she can be an employee of the same institute - a dissatisfied employee or one who has been dismissed. Flash crowds and aggressive legitimate users also deplete resources and could also be attackers.

Network size has increased enormously. This special issue will therefore focus on the forthcoming, unidentified security issues in the various networking fields, and will also explore ways of mitigating threat vulnerability providing real-time solutions in cyberspace.
