Call For Papers

Journal of Cloud Computing welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'Cloud Forensics and Security'.

Cloud Computing is becoming more and more appealing to organisations and individuals as a platform for ubiquitous, on-demand, high power and low cost computation. Unsurprisingly, the benefits and opportunities of clouds attract not only legitimate users, but also cyber-criminals. It exacerbates the possibility of large-scale illegal activities (e.g., storage and distribution of illicit material, deployment of botnet infrastructure, and phishing campaigns), facilitates novel business models, such as crime-as-a-service and “dark clouds”, and enables new forms of attacks and data misuse. This reality poses many challenges to different stakeholders in terms of preventing (the security aspect) and reacting (the forensics aspect) to those illegal activities.

This thematic series solicits technical and case-study papers from academia and industry with focus on advancing the state-of-the-art and practice in Cloud Forensics and Cloud Security. We invite unpublished and original submissions, or significantly extended conference papers with at least 50% of new and original content.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

Digital evidence search and seizure in the cloud
Forensics soundness and readiness in the cloud
Incident handling
Auditing and Logging
Service models and security / forensics implications
Tools and best practices
Resource allocation and security / forensics issues
Evaluation of Forensics-as-a-Service and Crime-as-a-Service provisioning
Integration of grids and clouds
Criminal profiling and reconstruction in the cloud
Data provenance / traceability
Big data in cloud forensics / cloud security
Economics of cloud forensics / security
Cybercrime investigation
Attack modelling and countermeasures
Legal and regulatory aspects of cloud forensics / security
Dark clouds
