Call For Papers

Recently, Information assurance and security have become an indispensable research avenue in networked and distributed information sharing environments. Finding effective and efficient ways to protect information systems, networks and sensitive data within the critical information infrastructure is challenging even with the most advanced technology, equipment and trained professionals. Intelligent techniques in information assurance and security have been widely and actively studied in the recent decades with a wide range of diversity of sources and these could offer many advantages in terms of usability, reliability, management, and user acceptance.

This special issue aims to bring together diversity of international researchers, experts and practitioners who are working in the area of information assurance, trust and security. We believe that this special issue will promote further co-operation between specialists of information assurance and security and other related disciplines. Furthermore, it will give interested researchers an opportunity to review the current state-of-art of the topic, exchange recent ideas, and explore promising new directions.

The assessment criteria will be heavily weighted towards originality, potential impact and relevance to this special issue. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees. Authors of International Workshop on Frontiers of Information Assurance & Security (FIAS’09) at International Conference on Network and Systems Security, Australia (NSS’09) are encouraged to submit their revised papers to this special issue. However, revised papers should contain 30~40% improvements and should also contain a good review of the previous art. The suggested topics for the special issue are (but not limited to):

• Information security management
• Authentication and authorization
• Data protection and privacy
• Internet and web security
• Intrusion detection
• Data and system integrity
• Digital rights management
• Security models and architectures
• Risk analysis and risk management
• Multimedia security
• Cryptographic protocols
• E-commerce protocols
• Biometrics security and applications
• Key management and recovery
• Wireless and ad hoc network security
• Database and system security
