TSEC-NextSecSociety 2017 : Journal of Cyber Security Technology Special Issue on Secure Smart Society in Next Generation Networking Paradigm
Call For Papers
The Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) present unprecedented opportunities for society progressively moving towards a highly socio-technical ecosystem, where the virtual and physical dimensions of human life are increasingly twined. Big data collected from numerous CPS, connected via next generation networks across various interfaces and locations, facilitates sophisticated Intelligent Decision Support (IDS) and Adaptive Personalised Services (APS).
Security vulnerabilities in CPS, however, leave users or even the entire smart society at risk. Besides, a rapid on-going evolution in the technical architectures and topologies of the Internet brings new security challenges to the fore. The migration of networks to Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), particularly, draws attention to security of orchestration, management functionality, surveillance as well as privacy.
This special issue aims to bring together expertise from industry and academia to address the urgent demand to enhance the reliability, robustness and privacy of smart society in next generation networking paradigm.
This special issue invites all interested stakeholders from industry and academia to submit their high quality original work towards building novel security schemes for securing smart society in in next generation networking paradigm. In this context, it is critical to understand the potential security vulnerabilities and threat models, as well as to develop security architectures and defending mechanisms for CPS and next generation network infrastructures.
Deadline for submissions: 31st December 2017
