Special Issue onThe 10th International Conference on Network and System Security (NSS 2016)

Theme and Scope

While the attack systems have become more easy-to-use, sophisticated, and powerful, interest has greatly increased in the field of building more effective, intelligent, adaptive, active and high performance defense systems which are distributed and networked. The NSS series conferences cover research on all theoretical and practical aspects related to network and system security, such as authentication, access control, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, dependability and sustainability of computer networks and systems. This year, the 10th International Conference on Network and System Security (NSS 2016) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan on 28-30 September, 2016. The aim of NSS 2016 is to provide a leading edge forum to foster interaction between researchers and developers with the network and system security communities, and to give attendees an opportunity to interact with experts in academia, industry, and governments. More information about the conference can be found at its website http://nsclab.org/nss2016. The main goal of this special issue is to publish outstanding researches from NSS 2016. We plan to select the papers relevant to network and system security from the accepted papers based on the reviews (comments and scores) and the presentations during the conferences. Each selected paper must be substantially extended, with at least 40% difference from its conference version. The special issue on "NSS 2016" is estimated to be published in Vol. 19 No. 4, July 2018.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

l  - Applied Cryptography

l  - Authentication

l  - Big Data Security and Privacy

l  - Database and System Security

l  - Intellectual Property Rights Protection

l  - Internet and Network Forensics

l  - Intrusion Detection and Prevention

l  - Security and Privacy in RFID/NFC, Cloud and Grid Systems, Pervasive/Ubiquitous Computing, Smart Grid, Social Networks or Wireless Networks
