Special Issue on Latest Developments for Security Management of Networks and Services
Submission Date: 2020-10-15

As the backbone of communications amongst objects, humans, companies, and administrations, the Internet has become a great integration platform capable of efficiently interconnecting billions of entities, from RFID chips to data centers. This platform provides access to multiple hardware and virtualized resources (servers, networking, storage, applications, connected objects) coming from cloud computing and internet-of-things infrastructures. From these resources that may be hosted and distributed amongst different providers and tenants, the building and operation of complex and value-added networked systems is enabled. These networked systems are, however, subject to a large variety of security attacks, such as distributed denial-of-service, man-in-the-middle, web-injection and malicious software attacks, orchestrated in a more or less stealthy manner through the Internet. While they are gaining in sophistication and coordination (i.e. advanced persistent threats), these attacks may affect the fundamental security goals of confidentiality, integrity, availability and non-repudiation of resources. The accessibility, distribution, and increased complexity of networked systems make them particularly vulnerable targets. In that context, cybersecurity techniques offer new perspectives for protecting these networked systems, through the elaboration of intelligent and efficient management methods for detecting, analyzing and mitigating such attacks. IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (IEEE TNSM) is a premier journal for timely publication of archival research on the management of networks, systems, services and applications. Following the success of the last recent TNSM special issue on cybersecurity techniques for managing networked systems in 2020, this special issue will also focus on latest developments for security management of networks and services. We welcome submissions addressing the important challenges (see the non-exhaustive list of topics below) and presenting novel research or experimentation results. Survey papers that offer a perspective on related work and identify key challenges for future research will be considered as well. We look forward to your submissions! About the Special Issue Topics of interest for this special issue, include, but are not limited to the following: Network and service management for security Security of network and service management Security management architecture, protocols and APIs Secure and resilient design and deployment of networked systems Monitoring and detection of threats and attacks Artificial intelligence, machine learning for cyber-security Analytics and big data for security management Modeling for security management Configuration and orchestration of security mechanisms Algorithms for security management Security automation, policy-based management NFV-based security functions and services Security of programmable components Chaining and orchestration of security functions Distributed security management Intrusion detection, tolerance, and prevention Resilience against large-scale distributed attacks Trust and identity management Verification and enforcement of security properties Vulnerability prevention and remediation Performance of security management Security of cloud applications and services Security of data-center infrastructures Security of 5G networks and services Security of smart environments Security of Internet of Things Security of SCADA, industrial and health networks Security of SDN- and NFV-based systems Network forensics, auditing and responses to incidents Privacy-preserving solutions for cybersecurity Detailed experience reports from experimental testbeds Blockchains for security management Security-related business, regulation and legal aspects Submission Format Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contribution to the field of management of software-defined virtualized systems, as well as their overall quality and suitability for the special issue. The submitted papers must be written in good English and describe original research which has not been published nor currently under review by other journals or conferences. Previously published conference papers should be clearly identified by the authors at the initial submission stage and an explanation should be provided of how such papers have been extended in order to be considered for this special issue.

Special Issue on Design and Management of Reliable Communication Networks
Submission Date: 2020-11-01

Reliability of communication infrastructure is a top priority for network operators. To ensure reliable network operation, new design and management techniques for reliable communications must be constantly devised to respond to the rapid network and service evolution. As a recent and relevant example, deployments of 5G communication networks will soon enter their second phase, during which the network infrastructure will require upgrades to support new Ultra-Reliable services with availabilities of up to 6 nines. Similarly, disaster resiliency in communication networks is now attracting the attention of media, government and industry as never before (consider, e.g., the worldwide network traffic deluge to support remote working during the current Coronavirus pandemic!). Luckily, several new technical directions can be leveraged to provide new solutions for network reliability as (just to name a few): increased network reconfigurability enabled by Software Defined Networking (SDN); integration/convergence of multiple technologies (optical, wireless satellite, datacenter networks); enhanced forms of data/service replication, supported by, e.g., edge computing; network slicing, used to carve highly-reliable logical partitions of network, computing and storage resources. These, and many others, technological transformations can be leveraged to enable next-generation high-reliability networks. Given the strong interest in both industry and academia towards reliability of telecom networks and cloud-computing infrastructures, we organize an IEEE TNSM special issue that aims at timely publication of recent and innovative research results on this important topic. We welcome submissions addressing important challenges (see the non-exhaustive list of topics below) and presenting novel research or experimentation results. Survey papers that offer a perspective on related work and identify key challenges for future research will be considered as well. We look forward to your submissions!
