Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical devices and various kinds of embedded software, which enable different Internet-connected objects to exchange data. However, the Internet-enabled devices also bring many new challenges. For example, the fundamental security weakness of IoT is that it increases the number of devices behind a network firewall. In addition, many companies may not update their devices very often, which means that an IoT device that was safe at first will become unsafe if hackers discover new threats and vulnerabilities. As a result, how to protect IoT from various threats is a challenging task.

This Special Issue focuses on all IoT security issues, especially threat detection and defense, and aims to publish recent research studies for IoT development that discuss novel ways in securing IoT security, privacy and trust.

In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Secure network architecture for IoT
  • Trust management of IoT
  • Secure data storage and segregation
  • Secure cloud storage and computation for IoT
  • Availability, recovery and auditing for IoT
  • Secure and energy efficient management for IoT
  • IoT cyber crime
  • Denial-of-service attacks for IoT
  • IoT security and privacy- IoT forensic techniques
  • Usable security and privacy for IoT
  • Intrusion detection and prevention for IoT
  • Cyber intelligence techniques for IoT
