E-government is an emerging paradigm to deliver government services to citizens, businesses, and other stakeholders through the use of Internet and information and communication technologies (ICTs). In such a scenario, providing security for the information which is shared with the stakeholders is a challenging task. Moreover, processing the huge volume of data from a server is also a difficult task.

This special issue expects novel works from research communities in the field of security for the information which is stored in the server. We also expect contributions in the field of e-government related information security issues. The next part of this proposal also aims to provide some novel works for data mining and data analysing methods for e-government related applications. In addition to this, the authors are also encouraged to submit papers with respect to performance related issues.

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

  • The development and implementation of secure e-government
  • Cryptographic protocols for secure e-government implementation
