Call for Papers for Computer

Computer seeks papers for a special issue on high-speed Internet security, to appear in June 2004. Guest editors are Simon Shim from San Jose State University, Li Gong from Sun Microsystems, Avi Rubin from The Johns Hopkins University, and Linley Gwennap from the Linley Group.

The growth of high-speed Internet service has strained the limits of existing network security measures. The CERT Coordination Center of the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University indicates that the number of reported security-breach incidents in the first half of 2003 climbed to 76,404—compared to the 82,094 incidents reported for the entire year in 2002.

Computer's special issue will focus on strategies for maintaining robust security standards in ever-faster network environments. Proposed topics include but are not limited to Internet security architecture, security servers, virtual private networks, grid computing security, and XML security. In addition to papers on these topics, Computer solicits case studies and first-hand experiences with high-speed Internet security solutions.
