Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The dynamics of existing computing models and computing environments change frequently, with the rapid development of mobile computing, big data, and artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things (IoT), blockchain technology, and many other large-scale computing environments. For example, in IoT and big data environments, many traditional solutions and tools are not suitable. Migrating conventional systems to the new computing environment may cause many unexpected mistakes and errors, resulting in an increasing number of security, trust, and privacy issues. With the popularity of blockchain technology, decentralized solutions are also leading to big changes in current computing environments. Many blockchain-based systems like PKI, audit systems, and insurance systems are under construction. The adoption of blockchain has the potential to help solve the issue of data integrity and transparency.

This Special Issue focuses on all security, trust, and privacy issues, and all efforts to investigate and address these challenges in current new computing environments.

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

  • User authentication in new computing environments
  • Risk analysis and intrusion response
  • Identity and access management in IoT
  • AI security
  • Measurement of IoT privacy leakage
  • Mobile cloud security
  • New cryptographic techniques
  • Cloud security
  • Security and privacy in big data
  • Blockchain in new computing environments
  • Software security
  • Cybercrime
  • IoT security and privacy
  • Forensic techniques
  • Usable security in new computing environments
  • Cyber intelligence techniques
Dr. Wenjuan Li, Dr. Weizhi Meng, Prof. Dr. Sokratis Katsikas and Dr. Peng Jiang
