Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rapid development of IoT has resulted in a tremendous increase in the connectivity of many devices and sensors deployed in various environments. The amount of sensitive data exchanged over IoT networks has also increased and IoT networks, especially those scaling to a large number of nodes embedded in the environment, such as Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), now face significant security challenges, similar to or in a greater extent than those of traditional networks.

Due to the unique characteristics of IoT networks, mainly their low cost as well as energy, bandwidth, and computational constraints, new and efficient methods to secure them are needed. Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to strengthen this effort further, by inviting contributions that address security concerns, solutions and tools in IoT networks. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following areas for IoT:

  • Protocol security
  • Privacy protection
  • Location information protection
  • Privacy and security enhancing tools
  • Standardization activities
  • Intrusion and anomaly detection
