Call for Book Chapters

BOOK TITLE: "Security of Self-Organizing Networks: MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET"

To be published by:
Auerbach Publications, CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, USA

Security is an indispensable issue for any type of self-organizing wireless network. To solve different security related issues in wireless networks, researchers have been putting various efforts and coming up with innovative ideas. Within the last few years, we have seen a steep growth of research works particularly on various security issues in different types of self-organizing wireless networks. These works address various types of networks like mobile wireless ad hoc networks (MANET), wireless sensor networks (WSN), wireless mesh networks (WMN), vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), etc. The objective of this book is to gather recent advancements in the fields of security in self-organizing wireless networks as well as to provide the readers with the essential information about wireless network security. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to (for MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET):
- Secure routing and transport
- Secure in-network processing
- Security services and architecture
- Key management issues
- Trust and privacy
- Secure deployment
- Access control and authentication
- Intrusion detection
- Denial of service
