Special Issue on Recent Advances in Security and Privacy in Distributed Communications

Aim and scope

Security services need to be considered as part of most communication proposals being discussed nowadays in distributed communication environments. Additionally, in the last few years, privacy has been gaining interest from both the designers and the customers of security solutions, thus being considered now as a key aspect for them. For a good security and/or privacy design, one needs to be informed of the latest advances in this field, this being the main objective of this special issue. It follows two earlier special issues on the same topics published in September 2012 and in July 2013.

This special issue is intended to report the most recent research works on distributed communications related to security and privacy, particularly in the following fields:

• Anonymity
• Authentication
• Authorization and access control
• Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)
• Cybersecurity and cyberwarfare
• Data integrity and protection
• Data security and data privacy
• Dependability of cloud systems
• Identity management
• Intrusion detection and prevention
• End-to-end security solutions
• Privacy enhancing technologies
• Risk analysis and management
• Secure and private data storage and processing in the cloud
• Security policies
• Threats and vulnerabilities
• Trust and reputation management in distributed scenarios

Papers with a strong cryptographic background will not be considered as part of this special issue.

Submission Guidelines

Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the fields of security and privacy, as well as their suitability to the special issue, and for their overall quality. The submitted papers have to describe original research which has not been published nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Guest editors will make an initial determination of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and authors will be promptly informed in such cases.

Author guidelines for preparation of manuscript can be found at

Papers should be submitted via the EES application that can be found at

To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for inclusion into the special issue, it is important that authors select Special Issue: Security and Privacy when they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process.
