RADIMCC 2019 : Special Issue: Recent Advances in Detection, Investigation and Mitigation of Cyber Crimes (J.UCS)
Call For Papers
Journal of Universal Computer Science, Thomson Reuter’s JCR list: impact factor: 1.066 (2017), 0.863 (5-year impact factor).
The aim of this J.UCS special issue is to show the latest research results in the field of digital forensics and to present the development of tools and techniques, which assist the investigation process of potentially illegal cyber activity. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: theoretical approaches and practical case reviews.
TOPICS OF INTEREST include, but are not limited to:
- Ransomware: evolution, functioning, types, etc.
- Criminal use of IoT e.g. IoT-based botnets
- Mobile malware
- Novel techniques in exploit kits
- Criminal to criminal (C2C) communications
- Criminal to victim (C2V) communications
- Darknets and hidden services
- Criminal abuse of clouds and social networks
- Cybercrimes: evolution, new trends and detection
- Cybercrime related investigations
- Privacy issues in digital forensics
- Network traffic analysis, traceback and attribution
- Incident response, investigation and evidence handling
- Integrity of digital evidence and live investigations
- Identification, authentication and collection of digital evidence
- Anti-forensic techniques and methods
- Watermarking and intellectual property theft
- Steganography/steganalysis and covert/subliminal channels
- Network anomalies detection
- Novel applications of information hiding in networks
- Political and business issues related to digital forensics and anti-forensic techniques
