Emerging Security Architectures and Technologies for Internet of Things

Call for Papers

Internet of Everything/Internet of Things (IoE/IoT) is a popular research area, which includes different application fields, such as building and home automation, smart city, healthcare, supply chain, transportation, oil and gas, environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, energy management, metropolitan scale deployments, consumer application, and Industry 4.0. To provide more secured services, different security technologies and issues such as information integration of local devices, design of the next-generation safe protocols, trustable cloud services and systems, security performance improvement, and the resource allocation of the networks should all be taken into consideration. Furthermore, new security architecture and technology are emerging to cooperate with the given domain knowledge to make connected things more valuable.

This special issue aims to provide a forum of discussing the recent advances in the security architecture and technology of Internet of Things. The accepted papers will show a diversity of new developments in these areas. This issue accepts high-quality articles containing original research results and review articles which let the readers understand more about this important technology trend.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Adaptable communication and safe system for IoE/IoT
  • Adaptable access control in generalized IoE/IoT
  • IoE/IoT security protocol
  • Trusted computing/trust management for IoE/IoT
  • Cheat-avoiding methodologies in IoE/IoT
  • New intrusion detection technologies in IoE/IoT
  • Data encryption methodologies for the unique environment of IoE/IoT
  • Privacy data storage and analytics in IoE/IoT
  • Preventing technology for information usurping in wireless body area network
  • Blockchain in IoT
  • Computational intelligence and machine learning techniques for massive networked (big) data analytics resource allocation and management for IoE/IoT
