Aims and Scope
As the number of wireless network installations is growing fast and become popular, the number of mobile users is still expanding, the mobile services and applications are becoming more and more data-driven and the horizontal roaming between cellular and wireless local networks in now feasible the associated security, privacy and trust issues are becoming more challenging.
The objectives of the SPAWN’08 Workshop are to develop new security, privacy and trust concepts for wireless and mobile networks. We solicited papers that consider wireless, MANET, cellular, vehicular, ad hoc, cognitive and sensor networks. The workshop aims to attract research work that not only address the major research issues involved in achieving a high level of security and privacy for these types of networks, but also research work that envisages new applications for wireless networks and the security and privacy challenges unique to these applications.
