Overview


Most of the security threats in various communications networks and systems are posed by the illegitimate entities that enter or intrude within the network perimeter, which could commonly be termed as "intruders". Sometimes a legitimate entity in a system could also be compromised in some way so that an attacker-intended task could be performed for breaching security of the system. To tackle intrusion of various kinds, we commonly hear about Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), or a combination of both called, IDPS (Intrusion Detection and Prevention System). The main task of an IDS is to defend a computer system or computer network by detecting an attack and possibly repealing it. Successful detection of hostile attacks depends on the number and types of appropriate actions. On the other hand, Intrusion prevention requires a well-selected combination of Ďbaiting and trappingí aimed at the investigations of threats. Diverting the intruderís attention from protected resources is another task. Both the real system and a possible trap system are constantly monitored. Various tasks and functionalities can be thought of under intrusion related topics in computer, communications, or networking fields:

- regular checking the data in computers and systems;
- monitoring and analyzing network traffic;
- analyzing network configuration and vulnerabilities;
- assessing network and data integrity;
- ability to recognize patterns typical to attacks;
- tracking the network policy violations;
- analysis of abnormal activities;
- outside influence and its impact on a systemís security, and so on.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:


- Intrusion detection schemes
- Intrusion prevention schemes
- Tracing back mobile attackers
- Secure routing with intrusion prevention
- Access control
- Authentication mechanisms
- Resource efficient intrusion detection & prevention
- Anomaly detection
- Specification based detection
- Misuse detection
- Intrusion detection vs Intrusion prevention
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) based intrusion techniques
- Game theory based intrusion detection techniques
- Physical intrusion in wired and wireless networks
- Cross-layer based intrusion detection
- Agent based intrusion surveillance, detection and prevention
- Multimedia security issues for tackling intruders

A tentative structure of the book is:

PART 1: Intrusion in Various Wired Networks
PART 2: Intrusion in Various Wireless Networks
PART 3: Intrusion in Next-Generation & Converged Networks
PART 4: Intrusion in Social Networks
 



Submission Guidelines

Manuscripts from all spheres of networking, computing, and communications related to intrusion are welcome. Each manuscript must be written in a tutorial style with minimum number of mathematical equations or notations (depends on the subject topic and specific focus). Each manuscript should be within 9000 to 12000 words including references. The authors should submit an initial proposal to the editor at sakib.pathan@gmail.com with the word "CRC_Intrusion" in the email subject.

 

Please strictly follow the deadlines mentioned below.

Manuscripts submitted for the book must be original, must not be previously published or currently under review anywhere. Please follow A4 page format, single column with 11 point Times New Roman font with 1.5 line spacing while submitting your manuscript as MS-Office (i.e., doc or docx) document. Use the number referencing style as usually used for regular research papers, NOT the APA style. That means, mention the reference numbers within the texts and in the references section, mention all the references with sequential numbers; [1], [2], [3] ...

 

A proposal for each chapter is needed as soon as possible before submitting the full chapter. The abstract/proposal could be within 500 words.

 



Target Audience

The target audience of this book are the graduate students, university teachers, professionals, and researchers working in the fields of intrusion detection, prevention, or tackling. Moreover, the book is expected to include some chapters written for the general readers so that they could be able to easily grasp some of the concepts in this area.
