Special Issue on The Design and Engineering of Cryptographic Solutions for Secure Information Systems

Information systems range from those deployed on home computers to state, governmental, and
huge enterprise systems using computers connected with local and global networks using wired
and wireless channels of information exchange. In order for the users to have high confidence in
those systems for the protection and authentication of stored and/or transmitted data,
cryptographic solutions have often been provided. It is essential for such solutions to be designed
and implemented using sound engineering approaches and practices as part of the core
functionality of secure information systems. The effective design and engineering of
cryptographic solutions require the understanding of, the requirements of the applications at
hand, their constraints and performance characteristics, the capabilities of the hardware and
software platforms, the nature of the network environments, and whether off the shelf solutions
are feasible, while balancing the desired level of security versus financial costs and risks
involved in deploying particular solutions. This special issue will focus on the effective design
and engineering (including validation) of cryptographic solutions in secure information systems
as they are applied to address topics such as:

access control and intrusion detection,
authentication and authorization,
network security
security protocols, models and policies,
information assurance,
security tools and development platforms,
trust and privacy, standards, guidelines and certification,
copyright protection,
key management and auditing,
computer forensics,
risk assessment,
secure electronic commerce,
biometric and identity management.
