I am looking for research papers (conference/journals) on the topic of SWE (Sensor Web Enablement) and SOS (Sensor Observation Service) also dealing/including security aspects.

I have already found some sources (after cleaning up, will post them here too) but i would appreciate it, if you could post any expert material or websources where to search.

If by "security aspects", you mean SWE/SOS as used in security systems, you might try googling "alternatives to incarceration gps".

Some might consider this a form of geoslavery. Coincidentally, a disproportionate number of the companies in this market, like GpsAim, seem to be based south of the Mason-Dixon line.

You can also find some papers from the previous SWE workshops in IEEEXplore.
