Network Assurance and Security Services in Ubiquitous Environments

Call for Papers

The technology for ubiquitous computing system is advancing
rapidly; however, the technology for ensuring security
and availability has not kept pace. Since security has not
been considered as an essential element in the design process
and is often added as an afterthought, many modern systems
are often plagued with numerous vulnerabilities. Thus,
to have secure and resilient ubiquitous systems, essential
network assurance and security (NAS) measures have to
be incorporated in the design process and during their

Network assurance (NA) quantifies risk from a network
perspective, based on a comprehensive set of network facts.
A complement to security solutions, network assurancemeasures
the impact of network change on security, availability,
and compliance. Using NA, organization can also prioritize
remediation efforts based on a complete view of connectivity
and risk. This is a critical requirement for validating policies
and controls, as organizations weave security into the fabric
of the infrastructure. Consequently, NAS has become an
important research issue in ubiquitous environments (UEs).
Finding effective ways to protect networks and sensitive
data within the critical information infrastructure in UE is
challenging even with the most advanced technology and
trained professionals.

The aim of this special issue is to provide an effective
forum for original scientific and engineering advances in
NAS issues in UE. It will highlight various aspects of
NAS—especially on crucial linkage between availability,
compliance, and security. This issue will bring out the latest
development and recent research results in this important
technical area as well as problems and solutions related to
NAS issues in UE. Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Design, architectures, protocols, development, and
deployment of NAS
• Availability, dependability, survivability, and resilience
• Authentication, Authorization, Access control and ID
• Redundancy, fault-tolerant models, and failure prevention
• Trust modeling and management
• Risk assessment and management
• Cryptographic, network security and keymanagement
• Novel threats, attacks, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures
• Reverse engineering of malicious code
• Intrusion detection, IDS/IPS
• Anonymity, user, and location privacy
• Content protection and DRM
• System/network management
• Network forensics and fraud detection
• Surveillance and privacy-enhancing technologies
• Adaptive and Autonomic security
• Multimedia security and privacy
• Legal, ethical and policy issues related to NAS
• New ideas and paradigms for NAS
