International Journal of Computer Research, Special Issue on Advances in Ad
Hoc Network Security, 4th Quarter. (Submission Due 1 January 2007)

Guest Editor: Nikos Komninos (Athens Information Technology)
Ad hoc networks are becoming an integral part of the computing landscape.
However, these networks introduce new security challenges due to their
dynamic topology, severe resource constraints, and absence of a trusted
infrastructure. This International Journal of Computer Research (IJCR)
special issue seeks submissions from academia and industry presenting novel
research on all aspects of security for ad hoc networks, as well as
experimental studies of fielded systems. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following as they
relate to mobile ad hoc networks: 

. Key management 
. Intrusion detection and tolerance 
. Secure location services 
. Secure clock distribution 
. Privacy and anonymity 
. Performance and security tradeoffs 
. Secure roaming across administrative domains 
. Denial of service 
. Prevention of traffic analysis
. Trust establishment, negotiation, and management 
. Secure routing 
. Secure MAC protocols 
. Cryptographic Protocols 
. Authentication and access control 

Submission Instructions: 
Authors should follow the IJCR manuscript format described in the
Submissions and Author Information section on the IJCP website 
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
