Call for Paper (CFP)
To many people, smartphones and similar mobile devices have been an indispensable part of daily life and work. With personal financial and medical information and job related data being processed on these mobile devices and connected mobile cloud, it is critically important that the development and advancement of secure mobile cloud network and systems, secure mobile cloud applications, and secure mobile devices keep up with the ever-growing mobile usage. For this reason, this research area has been a very important sector in the network and cloud industry and a focus of funded research projects in many research institutes.
The scope of SeMoCloud 2017 encompasses the security, privacy, and digital forensics of mobile cloud systems, networks and modeling, including but not limited to modeling, design and testing of mobile cloud with security and privacy in mind, secure mobile cloud methodologies and algorithms, and secure mobile cloud applications. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following subject categories:
• Modeling, design and testing secure mobile cloud
• Secure algorithms and methodologies for mobile cloud
• Secure and efficient private mobile cloud
• Digital forensics on mobile operating systems, applications and mobile devices
• Secure mobile cloud application design and development
• Smartphone and mobile device/hardware security
• Mobile cloud application security and digital forensics
• Mobile cloud user authentication and authorization
• Multi-factor mobile cloud authentication
• Mobile cloud user privacy
• Vulnerability detection and remediation of mobile cloud
• Intrusion detection and recovery on mobile cloud, applications, smartphones, and other mobile devices
• Mobile cloud device and applications management
