Information and Wireless Security

Symposium Chair

With emerging wireless network technologies such as sensor networks, grid networks, WPANs etc, access to information is becoming easier. However, in order for these networks to be used to their fullest potential, security of the data and the access medium must be guaranteed. Achieving this goal is especially challenging because of the underlying constraints such as limited battery power and bandwidth, channel interference, mobility, scalability issues etc. This symposium aims to bring together research work in the areas of information and communication security.

Papers offering novel research contributions in all aspects of Information and Communications Security are solicited for submission to the IEEE GLOBECOM 2006 Symposium on Information and Communication Security. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following.

Topics of Interest

  • Power-reliability-security trade-offs in wireless networks
  • Cross-layer approaches to security
  • Mobile network security
  • Key exchange, distribution and management in ad-hoc/sensor networks
  • Location aware security in mobile networks
  • Security in large scale networks
  • Throughput-Security trade-offs in wireless networks
  • Secure group multimedia communications
  • Secure PHY/MAC/routing protocols
  • Distributed security systems
  • Secure cooperation in wireless networks
  • Pricing issues
  • Jamming and counter measures
  • Attacks on security and vulnerability analysis
  • Application layer encryption
  • Emerging multimedia security standards (eg. JPSEC)
  • Digital watermarking and biometrics for secure information access
  • Steganography and covert communications
  • Capacity and security analysis of covert channels
