Special Issue "Information Systems Security"
A special issue of Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2017
The outstanding increase in both the number and complexity of computer attacks in the last few years, as well as the large profit made by them, have led to new business models based on cybercrime. This encourages the emergence of new strains, and raises the demand of defensive technologies able to confront them. However, the development of countermeasures has become a real challenge for the research community. This is mainly due to the fact that the design of defenses is lagging behind that of intruders, and new strategies for prevention, detection, and mitigation, adapted to the new trends, are required.
In order to contribute to addressing these threats, this Special Issue intends to collect the current developments and the future directions on network security. Hence, we encourage authors to submit original papers related to these fields.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Databases and big data security
- Electronic commerce security and digital currencies
- E-mail security, spam, and fraud
- Grid and cloud computing security
- Internet security and applications
- Intrusion detection and prevention
- Mobile computing security
- Multimedia forensics
- Network forensics
- Network steganography and steganalysis
- Peer-to-peer network security
- Penetration testing
- Secure system architectures
- Security protocols
- Sensor network security
- Trust and privacy
- Vehicular ad hoc networks security
