Call For Papers

* Call for papers:
Special Issue on: "Recent Trends in Security of Mobile Cloud Computing and the Internet of Things"

Guest Editors:

Dr. Dharma P. Agrawal, University of Cincinnati, USA

Cybersecurity is an essential need for a modern society in which information technology and services pervade every aspect of our lives. However, it is challenging to achieve, as technology is changing at rapid speed and our systems become ever more complex. We are gradually becoming more dependent upon such information and communication infrastructures, and the threats we face are organised by attackers or cyber criminals to exploit our dependency. Moreover, cyberspace is considered as the fifth battlefield after land, air, water and space.

Mobile cloud computing (MCC) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have gained more and more attention in recent years as they integrate different major technologies such as smart phones, tablets, sensors, big data and cloud computing into one platform provided to end users. MCC is vital to overcoming mobile limited storage and computing capabilities by providing remote storage, but requires a strict security system that is responsible for confidentiality, integrity, availability and seamless storage access. There are still significant security challenges to address with the rapid growth of MCC and IoT. This special issue aims to focus on new ideas and solutions to tackle these challenges.

The issue will focus on high-quality research and state-of-the-art research paradigms on security aspects in MCC and IoT. It is open to high-quality research contributions from a wide range of authors including scholars, researchers, academicians and industry. Original research papers and stateof the art reviews will be accepted. We anticipate that this special issue will open new roads for further research and technology improvements in this important area.

Subject Coverage
