Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

StuxNet has been described as "a working and fearsome prototype of a cyber-weapon that will lead to the creation of a new arms race in the world". StuxNet will remain in history as a milestone in the race between cyber-attackers and cyber-defense, with far-reaching implications not only at technical level, but also at economic, governance and policy level. It is not surprising that a successor of StuxNet, Duqu, has already been found in the wild, in fact both StuxNet and Duqu are the result of a new way of engineering malware. This special issue of Future Internet is dedicated to publishing the latest research on different aspects of "what has changed" after the discovery of StuxNet. Apart from original research papers related to StuxNet itself, to the Security of Process Control Systems, to SCADA security, to cyber-warfare and cyber-defense, this special issue also seeks to include academic multidisciplinary papers regarding economic, social and governance aspects.
