Call For Papers

Security and Communication Networks Journal (by Wiley) seeks original manuscripts for a special issue on the theme of the Design and Engineering of Cryptographic Solutions for Secure Information Systems. Information systems range from those deployed on home computers to state, governmental, and huge enterprise systems using computers connected with local and global networks using wired and wireless channels of information exchange. In order for the users to have high confidence in those systems for the protection and authentication of stored and/or transmitted data, cryptographic solutions have often been provided. It is essential for such solutions to be designed and implemented using sound engineering approaches and practices as part of the core functionality of secure information systems. The designers and engineers need to balance the desired level of security versus financial costs and risks involved in deploying particular solutions. Therefore the effective design and engineering of cryptographic solutions require a thorough understanding of the requirements of the applications at hand, their constraints and performance characteristics, the capabilities of the hardware and software platforms and the nature of the network environments.

Topics of Interest:

This special issue will focus on the effective design and engineering (including validation) of cryptographic solutions in secure information systems as they are applied to address topics such as:

• access control and intrusion detection
• authentication and authorization
• network security
• security protocols, models and policies
• security tools and development platforms
• trust and privacy, standards, guidelines and certification
• copyright protection
• key management and auditing
• computer forensics
• information assurance
• risk assessment
• secure electronic commerce
• biometric and identity management

The submission of papers just addressing these topics on their own are discouraged; the main focus of the submitted papers should be the design and engineering of cryptographic solutions.

Paper submissions:

This special issue is open to original, high quality contributions that are not published or currently under review by other archival journals or peer-reviewed conferences. Submissions of substantially revised and extended versions of papers published in conferences and workshops are also encouraged provided that the new content exceeds 35% of the paper and the authors provide a summary of the new contributions over the published papers.

Paper submissions should be prepared following the author guidelines provided by Wiley
( and should not exceed twenty pages. Papers should be submitted online (

The authors should choose the “Manuscript Type” as “Special Issue”; enter the “Running Head” as “SCN-SI-032” and the “Special Issue Title” as “Cryptographic Solutions for Secure Information Systems”, respectively. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three reviewers before a recommendation will be made.
