Wireless networks have experienced explosive growth during the last few years. Nowadays, there are a large variety of networks spanning from the well-known cellular networks to noninfrastructure wireless networks such as mobile ad hoc networks and sensor networks. Communication security is essential to the success of wireless sensor network applications, especially for those mission-critical applications working in unattended and even hostile environments. However, providing satisfactory

In this special issue, we concentrate mainly on security and privacy as well as the emerging applications of wireless sensor network. It aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from wireless and sensor networking, security, cryptography, and distributed computing communities, with the goal of promoting discussions and collaborations. We are interested in novel research on all aspects of security in wireless sensor networks and tradeoff between security and performance such as QoS, dependability, and scalability. The special issue covers industrial issues/applications and academic research into security and privacy for wireless sensor networks. This special issue includes a collection of 25 papers selected from 97 submissions to 21 countries or districts
