Wireless networks have grown significantly during the last years, from cellular networks up to non-infrastructure wireless networks including mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. To achieve secured communications in these networks, security and privacy issues are of main interest.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, engineers, and students from academia and industry, to discuss, share their experiences and exchange new ideas about theoretical and practical aspects of security and privacy in wireless networks. We solicit original and unpublished research in this area, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Anonymity, unobservability, prevention of traffic analysis
  • Cross-layer design for security
  • Cryptographic primitives for wireless communication
  • Denial of service
  • Economics of wireless security
  • Identity theft and phishing in mobile networks
  • Intrusion, attack and malicious behavior detection
  • Key management
  • Monitoring and surveillance
  • Secure Physical, MAC and Routing protocols
  • Threat & Trust Management
  • Secure delay- and disruption-tolerant networking
  • Secure Localization and Synchronization
  • Security/privacy in mobile / wireless cloud services
  • Security and Performance tradeoff
  • Security and privacy of mobile OS and mobile applications
  • Security Policy and Enforcement Issues
  • Security Protocols Design, Analysis and Verifi
  • Vulnerability and attack modeling
