FGCS-SI SP for RFID and IoTs 2017 : Special Issue on Security and Privacy for RFID and IoTs
Call For Papers
AIMS & SCOPE
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology for automatic identification of remote people and objects without line of sight. The deployment and use of RFID technology is growing rapidly across many different industries. It cannot only be used in traditional applications (e.g., asset or inventory tracking), but also in security services such as electronic passports and RFID-embedded credit cards. At the same time, the Internet of Things (IoT), which will represent the backbone of modern society and the next-generation Internet, have showed a strong potential to meet the information-processing demands of smart environments.
However, RFID and IoTs may also bring great challenges for the security and privacy of curernt systems and processes. For example, with the rapid deployment of RFID and a nature of wireless network, a number of concerns regarding security and privacy have been raised, e.g., clandestine tracking and inventorying. On the other hand, certain IoT applications will be tightly linked to sensitive infrastructures and strategic services, like the distribution of water and electricity. As a result, there is a great need to design and implement privacy and security technologies for RFID and IoTs in different domains.
This special issue will focus on RFID and IoTs, and attempts to solicit original research papers that discuss the security and privacy issues and opportunities.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
