Call for Paper
There is a shift away from the traditional client-server model to systems based on the peer-to peer network, which allows
users share resources effectively. Also, due to increase in number of Internet applications & users, the security issues and
pivotal challenges include integrity verification, authentication, and access control etc., are also increasing. As a
consequence, the subject of security protection in Network & Communication area has attracted intensive research activities
in academia and industry. With the recent advances in Communication & network technology, the applications in
commercial security scenario become increasing essential.
The purpose of this workshop is to publish latest & high-quality research works on Computer Networks &
Communications security for wired and wireless networks in theoretical and practical aspects. This workshop aims to
promote state-of-the-art research in the area of computer Networks security.
