Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the spotlight innovations which has the potential to provide unlimited benefits to our society. With the rapid growth of IoT applications, the classic centralized cloud computing paradigm faces several challenges such as high latency, low capacity and network failure. To address these challenges, fog computing brings the cloud closer to IoT devices by providing data processing capabilities and storage locally on fog nodes instead of sending them to the cloud. The integration of fog computing with the IoT creates a new opportunity for various applications and services. The fog supports real-time interactions between IoT devices to reduce latency, especially for time-sensitive IoT applications. In addition, one of the important features of fog computing is the ability to support large-scale sensor networks, which is a big problem with the ever-growing number of IoT devices. The purpose of this special issue is to provide the academic and industrial communities with an excellent venue covering all aspects of current work on emerging trends of fog computing in IoT applications.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • New computing technologies related to Fog-based IoT applications
  • Fog-based case studies on IoT applications
  • Network architecture of fog computing in IoT applications
  • Integrated communication and computing design for fog computing-based IoT
  • Theoretical foundation and models for fog/edge computing-based IoT
  • Data analytics for fog computing-based IoT
  • Big data for fog computing-based IoT
  • Security and privacy in fog computing-based IoT
  • Machine learning for fog computing-based IoT
  • Communication protocols for fog computing-based IoT
  • Vehicular fog computing
  • Fog computing as an enabler for 5G
  • Artificial Intelligence with Fog in IoT
  • Fog-enabled social networks of IoT devices
  • Energy efficient solutions for fog computing

Risk-Based Access Control Model: A Systematic Literature Review
Future Internet 2020, 12(6), 103; https://doi.org/10.3390/fi12060103 - 11 Jun 2020
Abstract
Most current access control models are rigid, as they are designed using static policies that always give the same outcome in different circumstances. In addition, they cannot adapt to environmental changes and unpredicted situations. With dynamic systems such as the Internet of Things [...] Read more.
Most current access control models are rigid, as they are designed using static policies that always give the same outcome in different circumstances. In addition, they cannot adapt to environmental changes and unpredicted situations. With dynamic systems such as the Internet of Things (IoT) with billions of things that are distributed everywhere, these access control models are obsolete. Hence, dynamic access control models are required. These models utilize not only access policies but also contextual and real-time information to determine the access decision. One of these dynamic models is the risk-based access control model. This model estimates the security risk value related to the access request dynamically to determine the access decision. Recently, the risk-based access control model has attracted the attention of several organizations and researchers to provide more flexibility in accessing system resources. Therefore, this paper provides a systematic review and examination of the state-of-the-art of the risk-based access control model to provide a detailed understanding of the topic. Based on the selected search strategy, 44 articles (of 1044 articles) were chosen for a closer examination. Out of these articles, the contributions of the selected articles were summarized. In addition, the risk factors used to build the risk-based access control model were extracted and analyzed. Besides, the risk estimation techniques used to evaluate the risks of access control operations were identified. Full article
