This special issue is devoted to composite and integrated security solutions
for Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In WSNs, researchers have so far
focused on the individual aspects (cryptography, privacy or trust) of
security that are capable of providing protection against specific types of
attacks. However, efforts on achieving completeness via a composite and
integrated solution are lacking. That is ultimately necessary to attain
because of its wide applicability in various sensitive applications, such as
health-care, military, habitat monitoring, etc.

The objective of this special issue is to gather recent advances in the area
of composite and integrated security solutions of wireless sensor networks.
This special issue covers topics that include, but are not limited to:
- Adaptive and Intelligent Defense Systems
- Authentication and Access control
- Data security and privacy
- Denial of service attacks and countermeasures
- Identity, Route and Location Anonymity schemes
- Intrusion detection and prevention techniques
- Cryptography, encryption algorithms and Key management schemes
- Secure routing schemes
- Secure neighbor discovery and localization
- Trust establishment and maintenance
- Confidentiality and data integrity
- Security architectures, deployments and solutions
