Call for Papers for Computer Magazine, June 2004

Computer Magazine seeks papers for a special issue on high-speed Internet
security, to appear in June 2004. Guest editors are Simon Shim from San
Jose State University, Li Gong from Sun Microsystems, Avi Rubin from The
Johns Hopkins University, and Linley Gwennap from the Linley Group.

The growth of high-speed Internet service has strained the limits of
existing network security measures. The CERT Coordination Center of the
Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University indicates
that the number of reported security-breach incidents in the first half
of 2003 climbed to 76,404-compared to the 82,094 incidents reported for
the entire year in 2002.

Computer's special issue will focus on strategies for maintaining robust
security standards in ever-faster network environments. Proposed topics
include but are not limited to Internet security architecture, security
servers, virtual private networks, grid computing security, and XML
security. In addition to papers on these topics, Computer solicits case
studies and first-hand experiences with high-speed Internet security
