ACM Transactions on Information and System Security

This addition to ACM's Transactions Series is devoted to the study,
analysis, and application of information and system security. TISSEC will
begin as a paper-based journal, but will evolve into an electronic
publication. The editorial board is committed to a turnaround time
comparable to research conferences while ensuring archival journal quality.

Topics include:
- Security Technologies: authentication; authorization models and
mechanisms; auditing and intrusion detection; cryptographic algorithms,
protocols, services, and infrastructure;recovery and survivable operation;
risk analysis; assurance including cryptanalysis and formal methods;
penetration technologies including viruses, Trojan horses,
spoofing,sniffing, cracking, and covert channels,
- Secure Systems: secure operating systems, database systems and networks;
secure distributed systems including security middleware; secure web
browsers, servers, and mobile code; specialized secure systems for specific
application areas; interoperability, and composition.
- Security Applications: threats, system tradeoffs, and unique needs of
applications; representative application areas include information systems,
workflow, electronic commerce, electronic cash, copyright and intellectual
property protection, telecommunications systems, wireless systems, and
health care.
- Security Policies: confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy,
usage, and survivability policies; tradeoffs, conflicts and synergy among
security objectives.

Abstracts are available in HTML format. Full-text articles are available in
PDF format. Access to full-text is by pay-per-view or subscription only.
