Description

While security is of vital importance to ensure the integrity of communications in wireless and mobile networks, most businesses which rely on these networks expect a high level of security and privacy to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of communications among terminals, networks, applications, and services.

Security, Privacy, Trust, and Resource Management in Mobile and Wireless Communications examines the current scope of theoretical and practical applications on the security of mobile and wireless communications. This book covers fundamental concepts of current issues, challenges, and solutions in wireless and mobile networks and will serve as a reference for graduate students, professors, and researchers in this emerging field.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaboration Computing Systems
  • Design and Analysis of Cryptographic Algorithms
  • Economics of Privacy and Security
  • Privacy, Trust, and Security Architectures and Protocols
  • Resource Management
  • Web and Web Services Security
  • Wireless Access Networks

Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Danda B. Rawat received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Old Dominion University, USA. He is currently with the Department of Electrical Engineering at Georgia Southern University. His research focuses on wireless communication systems and networks. His current research interests include design, analysis, and evaluation of cognitive radio networks, vehicular ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, telecommunication networks, network security, and cyber physical systems. He has published over 65 scientific papers on these topics. He has served as a Lead Guest Editor, Guest Editor, Editor and Editorial Board Member for several international journals in the area of wireless communication systems and networks. He has also served as a workshop chair and session chair for numerous international workshops and conferences, and served as a technical program committee member for several international conferences including IEEE GLOBECOM, GreenCom, WCNC and VTC conferences. He is the recipient of the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Broadband and Wireless Computing, Communication & Applications 2010 (BWCCA 2010) among others. He has previously held an academic position at Eastern Kentucky University, Old Dominion University and Tribhuvan University. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a member of ACM.
Bhed Bahadur Bista received the B.Eng. degree in Electronics from the University of York, England and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Information Science from Tohoku University, Japan. After his Ph.D., he worked at the Miyagi University, Japan, for one year as a Research Associate and moved to the Iwate Prefectural University, also in Japan in 1998 as an Assistant Professor. Currently, he is an Associate Professor with the Department of Software and Information Science at the same university. His research interests include computer networks, vehicular networks, sensor networks, ad hoc and cognitive radio networks. He has organized International Workshops and has actively taken part as an area chair and a program committee member in international conferences. He has served as a guest editor for a Special Issue of Ad Hoc Networks, an International Journal published by Elsevier and an International Journal of Wireless and Mobile Computing (IJWMC).
Gongjun Yan received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Old Dominion University in 2010. He is currently an Assistant Professor in University of Southern Indiana and has been working on the issues surrounding Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks, Sensor Networks and Wireless Communication. His main research areas include intelligent vehicles, security, privacy, routing, and healthcare. In years, Dr. Yan applies mathematical analysis to model behavior of complex systems and integrates existing techniques to provide comprehensive solutions. He has published more than 60 journal papers, book chapters, and conference papers and has been the best paper award winner in international conferences (BWCCA and SOLI). He has served as grant reviewer, article/paper reviewer, session chair and keynote speaker in international conferences and editor in journals. He is associate editor in IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation System.
