Call For Papers

We would like to bring your attention to edited book as follows:
Architectures and Protocols for Secure Cloud Environment
This book would be published by CRC Press, Taylor and Francis (USA) and is anticipated to be in print by December 2014 tentatively. We kindly request you to contribute chapters for this book based on your research area.

The Editors:

Mr Kashif Munir, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, KSA

Dr Lawan Ahamd Mohammad, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, KSA

Scope of the Edited Books:

Cloud computing is an infrastructure that is able to deliver different levels of services, by using many type of platforms and sharing the resources inside of it, to customers outside the cloud (over the Internet). The offered services can be dynamically configured via virtualization or other approaches and delivered on demand to the external customers, and it is massively and dynamically scalable.

Architectures and Protocols for Secure Cloud Environment investigates different protocols and architectures that can be used to design, create, and develop security mechanism by highlighting recent advances, trends, and contributions to the building blocks for solving security issues. This book is essential for researchers, engineers, and professionals interested in exploring recent advances in ICT security.

Aim & Objectives

Covers architectures and communications protocols in detail, illustrating solutions with practical implementation examples and case studies.
Provides an understanding of mutual relationships and dependencies between different protocols and architectural decisions.
Offers an in-depth investigation of relevant protocol mechanisms.
Shows which protocols are suitable for which tasks within a Cloud Environment and in which circumstances they perform efficiently.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Cloud Reference Architecture
Cloud systems and tools
Cloud wireless sensor networks
Cloud-centric Mobile security
Bring Your Own Device, Mobile Device Management
Design, implementation and performance evaluation for cloud applications
Security for emerging cloud programming models
Web services supporting cloud computing
Models, methodologies and tools for web services
Cloud-delivered security services
Cryptographic protocols for cloud security
Cloud threat/attack/vulnerability models
Big Data in the Cloud
Managing and administering information in the Cloud
Reliability, Fault Tolerance, Quality-of-Service
Security risk models for cloud computing
New standards, guidelines, best practices for security and privacy in the Cloud
Cost and economic models for security in the Cloud
Analysis of secure protocols and architectures
New secure protocols, architectures or systems
Manuscript guidelines:

Refer to the link shown: Click here. The preparation of manuscripts submitted for the book must be original and not previously published elsewhere or currently under review. Expected chapter length is between 4,000 to 8,000 words or more (or can be discussed with the editors).
