Special Issue of Journal of Systems Architecture, Elsevier
Embedded Cryptographic Hardware
CALL FOR PAPERS -- http://www.isebis.eng.uerj.br/JSA-SI.htm

The need for fast and secure cryptographic systems grows bigger every
day.
Therefore, dedicated hardware for cryptography is becoming a key issue
for
designers. On the other hand, with the spread of reconfigurable
hardware
such as FPGAs, hardware implementations of cryptographic algorithms
become
cost-effective.

The focus of this special issue is on all aspects of cryptographic
hardware
and embedded systems. Of special interest are contributions that
describe
new efficient and secure hardware implementations for existing or new
cryptographic methods. Papers are solicited for a special issue of
Journal
of Systems Architecture published by Elsevier devoted to Embedded
Cryptographic Hardware.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Computer architectures for public-key cryptosystems
* Computer architecture for secret-key cryptosystems
* Efficient cryptographic algorithms for embedded processors
* Reconfigurable computing in cryptography
* Cryptographic processors and co-processors
* Cryptography in wireless applications
* Smart card architectures
* Compression algorithms for smart cards
* Special-purpose hardware for cryptanalysis

The length of each contribution is limited to 12 pages using LaTeX
together
with these style files. Papers may only be submitted electronically
(PDF) to
the guest editors at snipped-for-privacy@eng.uerj.br.

Time schedule:
* Paper submission: April 30th, 2006
* Notification of acceptance: July 30th, 2006.
* Camera-ready: September 30th, 2006
