The proliferation of mobile ad hoc and sensor network has promoted the development of the concepts of autonomous computing with a potentially large range of applications. However, the inherent vulnerability of these autonomous networks introduces new security challenges. Security Solutions in Smart Networks (WSN, WBAN, 6loWPAN ...) is a pivotal reference source for the latest research on the development of smart Sensors technology and best practices of utilization. Smart Networks represents a new generation of ubiquitous computing that can be found anywhere and everywhere. This book is ideally designed for students, researchers, academicians, and professionals who are looking for current research on how to implement Smart Sensor Networks, covering a range of perspectives and relevant topics, such as threat and attacks detection, Lightweight Crypto and security solutions, authentication and intrusion detection.


The main goal of this project is to encourage both researchers and practitioners to share and exchange their experiences and recent studies between academia and industry. The overall objectives are:
• To improve the awareness of readers about Smart Sensor Networks, concepts, security, and privacy areas.
• To analyze and present the state-of-the-art of the smart sensors security and related technologies and methodologies.
• To highlight and discuss the recent development and emerging trends in the smart sensors security.
• To propose new models, practical solutions and technological advances related to security.
• Discusses new smart sensor network security protocols

Target Audience

This book is ideally designed for policy makers, students, researchers, academicians, and professionals who are looking for current research that are interested in exploring and implementing on Smart Sensor Networks and related technologies. Authors from the AWICT conference second edition are invited to submit their extended papers as book chapters.
