Book Title: Security & Privacy Issues in Fog/Edge Computing

Publisher: Springer

Jie Wu, Temple University, Philadelphia, USA
Wei Chang, Saint Joseph's University, Philadelphia, USA

Recent rapid advances in Mobile Cellular Networks, Cloud Computing, and Big Data have introduced Fog/Edge Computing as an interesting topic to the research community, one that has received much attention from practitioners, scholars, and the general public. The Fog/Edge Computing can be described as an extension of the Cloud Computing to the edge of an enterprise's network to cope with the tremendous data volumes for having a low-latency or even real-time service. Considering that we are in the era of big data, many applications, such as the Internet of Things, Mobile Social Networks, and Smart City, keep generating data and interacting with the remote data centers all the time, which creates unique requirements and new challenges on the computation, storage, and communication. Thanks to the idea of the Fog/Edge Computing, certain tasks can be mitigated from the heavy-weighted data center to local devices, which not only reduces the workload of the data center but also accelerates the average serving speed. Due to the benefits of using Fog/Edge Computing, many emergent applications are now available for individuals, business enterprises, and governments. However, with the emergence of these new applications, various security and privacy issues are also exposed. Many new security and privacy techniques have been developed and are adopted in the Fog/Edge Computing.
The main goal of this book is to collect the recent development of security, privacy, and applications in the Fog/Edge Computing. This book will be of
particular value to academics, researchers, practitioners, government officials, business organizations (e.g., executives, marketing professionals, resource managers, etc.), and even customers -- working, participating, or those interested in fields related to Fog Computing and Cloud Computing. The content of the book will be especially useful for students in areas like Internet of Things, Clouds, Distributed Systems, Computer Networks, Data Mining, and administrative sciences and management, but also applies to students of education, economy, or law, who would benefit from the information, cases, and examples therein.

Recommended Topics:
This book accepts contributions from various topics in the field of Edge/Fog Computing. The tentative list of topics is as follows:
1. Information and data management in fog/edge computing
2. Access control mechanisms in fog/edge computing
3. Key management in fog/edge computing
4. Identification management and fraud management in fog/edge computing
5. Intrusion Detection in fog/edge computing
6. Secure deployment strategy of fog/edge infrastructure
7. Digital forensics and Anti-forensics techniques
8. Vulnerabilities in heterogeneous fog/edge systems
9. Cyber-physics security fog/edge devices
10.Social engineering in fog/edge computing
11.Fault tolerance for fog/edge computing
12.Reliability/scalability-based scheduling and prediction
13.Trust and reputation for fog/edge computing
14.Pricing, billing, and incentives for fog/edge computing
15.Security/privacy-related evaluation approaches for fog/edge computing
16.Privacy-preserving techniques for fog/edge services
17.Privacy protection for fog/edge users
18.Security/privacy-related fog/edge monitoring infrastructures
19.New security/privacy models, architecture, and frameworks for fog/edge computing
20.Security/privacy in fog/edge communications: 3G/4G/5G, Wi-Fi, Ad-hoc, and Wi-MAX
21.Security and privacy for IoT-related fog/edge computing paradigm
22.Security and privacy for SDN-related fog/edge computing paradigm
23.Emerging Attacks: next generation of cyber hacking for fog/edge computing
