IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications

While the recent proliferation of broadband wireline and wireless networking technologies have substantially increased the available network capacity and enabled a wide-range of feature-rich high-speed communication services, security remains a major concern. Large-scale, high-profile system exploits and network attacks have become common recurring events that increasingly threaten the proper functioning and continual success of the communication infrastructure and services. One key aspect of mitigating such increasing threats is to develop new security/defense architectures, systems, methodologies and algorithms which can scale together with the communications infrastructure in terms of operating speed, operational simplicity and manageability, etc. The aim of this issue is to bring together the work done by researchers and practitioners in understanding the theoretical, architectural, system, and implementation issues related to all aspects of security in high-speed networks. We seek original, previously unpublished and completed contributions not currently under review by another journal. Areas of interest include but are not limited to the following topics related to high-speed network security:

Authors should follow the IEEE J-SAC manuscript format described in the Information for Authors.
