*Special issue on Recent Advances in Physical-Layer Security*

Physical-layer security is emerging as a promising approach for 
supporting new and existing security services. Aspects of the physical 
layer have the potential to provide security services that challenges 
the capabilities of conventional cryptographic mechanisms, such as relay 
attacks, ad-hoc key establishment and key-less secure communication.

This special issue aims to further scientific research into both 
theoretical and practical approaches to physical-layer security. It will 
accept original research papers that report latest results and advances 
in this area, and will also invite review articles that focus on the 
state-of-the-art, highlighting trends and challenges. The papers will be 
peer reviewed and will be selected on the basis of their quality and 
relevance to the topic of this special issue. We would particularly like 
to encourage submissions that present strong experimental and/or 
practical implementation results. Topics include (but are not limited to):

  * Determining physical proximity of devices (distance-bounding
    protocols, location limited channels, etc.)
  * Device fingerprinting based on communication features
    (frequency/data clock skew/transients, etc.)
  * Noisy channels (‘friendly’ jamming) approaches for security
  * Jamming (‘unfriendly’) resistance
  * Secret-key generation and agreement over wireless channels
  * Cross-layer security mechanisms incorporating cryptography and
    physical layer aspects for low-resource devices like RFID (efficient
    schemes, simplified signal processing requirements, etc.)
  * Experimental results on practical implementations of physical layer
    security techniques


*/Submission Guidelines/***

All received submissions will be sent out for peer review by three 
experts in the field and will be evaluated with respect to the relevance 
to this special issue, level of innovation, depth of contribution, and 
quality of presentation. The Guest Editors will make an initial 
determination of the suitability and scope for all submissions. Papers 
that either lack originality or clarity in presentation will not be sent 
for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases. 
Submitted papers must not be under consideration by other journals, 
publications or conferences.
Authors should follow the Computer Networks manuscript format described 
below at the journal site: 
The submission must be clearly written and in excellent English, with a 
maximum page limit of 20 pages. If an earlier version of the paper was 
published in a conference, the submitted manuscript must be a 
substantial extension of the conference paper. In this case, authors are 
also required to submit their published conference articles and a 
summary document explaining the enhancements made in the journal version.
Manuscripts should be submitted on line through 
http://ees.elsevier.com/comnet/ and “Physical Layer Security” selected 
as the article type.
