Emerging Challenges and Solutions for Multimedia Security

Call for Papers

Today’s world’s societies are becoming more and more dependent on open networks such as the Internet, where commercial activities, business transactions, government services, and entertainment services are realized. This has led to the fast development of new cyber threats and numerous information security issues which are exploited by cyber criminals. The inability to provide trusted secure services in contemporary computer network technologies could have a tremendous socioeconomic impact on global enterprises as well as on individuals.

In the recent years, rapid development in digital technologies has been augmented by the progress in the field of multimedia standards and the mushrooming of multimedia applications and services penetrating and changing the way people interact, communicate, work, entertain, and relax. Multimedia services are becoming more significant and popular and they enrich humans’ everyday life. Currently, the term multimedia information refers not only to text, image, video, or audio content but also to graphics, flash, web, 3D data, and so forth. Multimedia information may be generated, processed, transmitted, retrieved, consumed, or shared in various environments. The lowered cost of reproduction, storage, and distribution, however, also invites much motivation for large-scale commercial infringement.

The above-mentioned issues have generated new challenges related to protection of multimedia services, applications, and digital content. Providing multimedia security is significantly different from providing typical computer information security, since multimedia content usually involves large volumes of data and requires interactive operations and real-time responses. Additionally, ensuring digital multimedia security must also signify safeguarding of the multimedia services. Different services require different methods for content distribution, payment, interaction, and so forth. Moreover, these services are also expected to be “smart” in the environment of converged networks, which means that they must adapt to different network conditions and types as multimedia information can be utilized in various networked environments, for example, in fixed, wireless, and mobile networks. All of these make providing security for multimedia even harder to perform.

This special issue intends to bring together diversity of international researchers, experts, and practitioners who are currently working in the area of digital multimedia security. Researchers both from academia and industry are invited to contribute their work for extending the existing knowledge in the field. The aim of this special issue is to present a collection of high-quality research papers that will provide a view on the latest research advances not only on secure multimedia transmission and distribution but also on multimedia content protection.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

- Emerging technologies in digital multimedia security
- Digital watermarking
- Fingerprinting in multimedia signals
- Digital media steganology (steganography and steganalysis)
- Information theoretic analysis of secure multimedia systems
- Security/privacy in multimedia services
- Multimedia and digital media forensics
- Quality of Service (QoS)/Quality of Experience (QoE) and their relationships with security
- Security of voice and face biometry
- Multimedia integrity verification and authentication
- Multimedia systems security
- Digital rights management
- Digital content protection
- Tampering and attacks on original information
- Content identification and secure content delivery
- Piracy detection and tracing
- Copyright protection and surveillance
- Forgery detection
- Secure multimedia networking
- Multimedia network protection, privacy, and security
- Secure multimedia system design, trusted computing, and protocol security
