Security and Privacy for Space-Air-Ground Integrated Networks Special Topic – call for papers

We are pleased to inform you that Security and Safety is accepting submissions for its Special Topic on “Security and Privacy for Space-Air-Ground Integrated Networks”.

Although widely established and providing numerous valuable services, terrestrial networks, such as mobile networks, have geographic and deployment cost limitations due to the high reliance on fixed-ground infrastructure. Hence, space-air-ground integrated networks (SAGINs) have been proposed to increase network intelligence, enhance network reliability, and offer ubiquitous wireless coverage via satellite networks including Geosynchronous Orbit (GSO), Geostationary Equatorial Orbit (GEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, aerial networks (e.g., drone networks), and ground networks (e.g., mobile networks). SAGINs are envisioned to support various promising IoT applications and multimedia services and satisfy the high demands of seamless communications and network Quality of Services (QoS).

This special topic aims to provide a collection of high-quality research papers on “Security and Privacy for Space-Air-Ground Integrated Networks”. Both theoretical and experimental contributions are encouraged. Submitted articles can have a wide range of topics including Zero-trust security models for SA, AI-enhanced security techniques for SAGINs, Malware and intrusion detection solutions for SAGINs etc.
