Security and Privacy in Modern Telecommunication Networks

Special session organizer

Kresimir Grgic, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology Osijek


The goal of this special session is to connect researchers and experts dealing with security and privacy i emerging and modern telecommunication networks. Given today’s development of network technologies, emphasis will be placed on the security aspects of new generations of networks, such as the Internet of Things. In such networks, often heterogeneous, we encounter more security problems, ranging  from communication security, through non-standardized devices and connected interfaces, to data privacy issues within the devices and on the network.


Contributions to the session are expected in the following areas, but not limited to them:

  • Secure protocols for heterogeneous environments
  • Security architectures and platforms
  • Privacy solutions and privacy enablers
  • Self-healing, management and malicious node detection
  • Security solutions for threat monitoring
  • Malware analysis
  • Security considerations for IoT devices and interfaces
