Call for Book Chapter Proposals - Data Security in Cloud Computing

Data Security in Cloud Computing
(A copy of this CfCP can be found at
Cloud computing is transforming the way we view and perform computing. Many organizations have already embraced this paradigm of a centralized cloud, due to its benefits of economy, reliability, scalability and guaranteed quality of service among others. These benefits however are traded with the control of data, since data is stored, computed upon and accessed on the cloud, away from the premises of the data owner and the data user. This loss of control of data gives rise to a number of challenging data security issues, ranging from accountability, to data provenance, to identity and risk management among others. These issues have the capability to determine how effective and widespread cloud computing of the next generation is going to be and their solutions can push us into the right directionction.
The book intends to provide the reader with a coverage of a wide range of issues on data security in cloud computing. It will cover issues directly related to various aspects of data security in cloud computing, along with a selection of topics on emerging technologies. The book will be published by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Section 1: Data-at-Rest
1. Secure data sharing in cloud
2. Remote data integrity check for auditing in cloud
3. Data leakage in cloud
4. Data loss/resilience in cloud
5. Access control of encrypted data in cloud
Section 2: Data-in-Transit
1.         Secure information flow in and out of clouds
2.         Emerging cloud encryption technologies
Section 3: Data-in-Processing
1.         Accountability of data in cloud
2.         Secure and privacy preserving computation in cloud
3.       Secure virtual environments
Section 4: Data Provenance
1.        Provenance of data in cloud
2.        Security attribution in and across clouds
3.        Identity management in federated clouds
Section 5: Governance, Risk, Compliance
1.        Risk management in clouds
2.        Cloud data governance
3.        Data privacy legislation and integration with technologies
Section 6: Data Security Challenges in Emerging Technologies
1.        Bring your own device
2.        Internet of Things
3.        Cyber-physical systems
4.        Vehicular ad hoc networks
