  • Key management, public key infrastructures, certification, revocation, and authentication
  • Malware detection and mitigation
  • Security metrics and models
  • Physical-layer and cross-layer security technologies
  • Security and privacy for big data
  • Security and privacy for data and network outsourcing services
  • Security and privacy for mobile and wearable devices
  • Security and privacy in cellular networks
  • Security and privacy in cloud and edge computing
  • Security and privacy in crowdsourcing
  • Security and privacy in emerging wireless technologies (dynamic spectrum sharing, cognitive radio networks, millimeter wave communications, MIMO systems, etc.)
  • Security and privacy in peer-to-peer and overlay networks
  • Security and privacy in WiFi, ad hoc, mesh, sensor, vehicular, body-area, disruption/delay tolerant, and social networks.
  • Security and privacy in smart cities, smart and connected health, IoT, and RFID systems
