About IEEE Security & Privacy

IEEE Security & Privacy's primary objective is to stimulate and track advances in security, privacy, and dependability and present these advances in a form that can be useful to a broad cross-section of the professional community--ranging from academic researchers to industry practitioners.

IEEE Security & Privacy aims to provide a unique combination of research articles, case studies, tutorials, and regular departments covering diverse aspects of security and dependability of computer-based systems, including legal and ethical issues, privacy concerns, tools to help secure information, methods for development and assessment of trustworthy systems, analysis of vulnerabilities and attacks, trends and new developments, pedagogical and curricular issues in educating the next generation of security professionals, secure operating systems and applications, security issues in wireless networks, design and test strategies for secure and survivable systems, and cryptology, and other topics of interest to a general, technically oriented readership.

All submissions in the magazine's scope will be peer-reviewed, and accepted manuscripts will be professionally copy-edited to ensure a common style and level of content for the magazine.

Articles that report the latest advances in research, particularly those that address a narrow technical area and those that lack content reporting results of experimental validation or deployment of new methods or technologies, are generally not suitable for publication in IEEE Security & Privacy. Authors of such works are advised to submit them to research conferences and journals with the appropriate scope. IEEE Transactions on Reliability or IEEE Transactions on Secure and Dependable Systems, for example, might provide appropriate venues for some such submissions.

S&P is copublished by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Reliability Society.
