Recent advances in electronics and wireless communication technologies have enabled the extensive deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). These networks have applications in many important areas, such as military, healthcare, environment monitoring, and manufacturing. Security and privacy are critical issues to many sensor network applications including military target tracking and healthcare monitoring. To provide security and privacy to these networks is challenging, due to the open nature of wireless communication and the limited capabilities of sensor nodes in terms of processing power, storage, bandwidth, and energy. Additionally, widespread and unrestricted deployment of WSNs makes them exposed to a number of security vulnerabilities. Moreover, a number of trust and reputation issues arise in WSNs since trust is a fundamental consideration for operation and stability of WSNs. An example is that a trust management frame in WSNs can be utilized to prevent nodes from performing malicious or selfish behaviour.
This special issue aims to foster the latest development in the design, implementation, and evaluation in the fields of trust, reputation, security and privacy of WSNs. Original and research articles are solicited including new mechanisms, theoretical studies, practical applications, and experimental prototypes.
Topics to be covered in this special issue include but are not limited to:
Trust, anonymity, reputation and privacy models for WSNs
Cross-layer design for security
Formal methods for WSN security
Security, privacy and cryptographic algorithms in WSNs
Security and privacy in body sensor networks
Software security for sensor network nodes
Security and privacy in medical sensor networks
Trust based protocols and computational model for WSNs
Novel perspectives on trust, security and privacy for WSNs
Economics of WSN security
Unattended sensor network security
Key management in WSNs
Secure routing and localization protocols for WSNs
Intrusion detection and prevention in WSNs
Wireless passive sensor network security
