Special Issue on 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 effective design and engineering of

cryptographic solutions require the understanding of, the requirements of the applications at

hand, their constraints and performance characteristics, the capabilities of the hardware and

software platforms, the nature of the network environments, and whether off the shelf solutions

are feasible, while balancing the desired level of security versus financial costs and risks

involved in deploying particular solutions. 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,

information assurance,

security tools and development platforms,

trust and privacy, standards, guidelines and certification,

copyright protection,

key management and auditing,

computer forensics,

risk assessment,

secure electronic commerce,

biometric and identity management.

Submission Details:

This special issue is open to original, high quality contributions that are not published or

currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences. Previously published

conference papers must be substantially revised, improved, and extended from their earlier

versions with at least 30% new materials or results to comply with the copyright regulations. For

manuscript submission, the prospective authors should follow the guidelines available from Papers should be submitted

online at When submitting the papers, the authors should
