Call For Papers

Cloud computing offers a new way of services by re-arranging various resources and providing them to users based on their demands. It also plays an important role in the next generation mobile networks and services (5G) and Cyber-Physical and Social Computing (CPSC). Storing data in the cloud greatly reduces storage burden of users and brings them access convenience, thus it has become one of the most important cloud services.

However, cloud data security, privacy and trust become a crucial issue that impacts the success of cloud computing. Cloud data storage increases the risk of data leakage and unauthorized access. Cloud data management cannot be fully trusted by data owners. Cloud data process and computation could disclose the privacy of data owners or related entities to unauthorized parities. For overcoming the above problems, cryptography has been widely applied to ensure data security, privacy and trust in cloud computing, but existing solutions are still imperfect. Computation efficiency, key management, verifiable data computing are key challenges. Cryptography in cloud computing promises many novel solutions but at the same time, many challenges are yet to be overcome.

This special issue aims to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss various aspects of cryptography and data security in cloud computing, explore key theories, investigate technology enablers, develop significant applications and innovate new solutions for overcoming major challenges in this exciting research area.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Cryptography for cloud data trust management
Cryptography for cloud data access control
Cryptography for privacy preserving data analytics and mining
Cryptography for auditing on cloud data management
Cryptography for verifiable computing
Cryptography for cloud data authentication and authorization
Cryptography for secure cloud data storage and deduplication
Cryptography for secure and privacy enhanced cloud data search and query
Cryptography for data security and privacy in CPSC
Cryptography for secure IoT data process at cloud
Instructions for Manuscripts
Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance and contributions, as well as their suitability to the special issue. The submitted papers must be written in excellent English and describe original research that has not been published nor currently under review by other venues. Previously published conference papers should be clearly identified by the authors at the submission stage and an explanation should be provided about how such papers have been extended to be considered for this special issue. Extended conference contributions must have at least 50% difference from the original works (the authors must indicate the conference name and make a reference to the base conference paper). Guest editors will make an initial determination on the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the special issue will not be sent for review and the authors will be promptly informed in such cases.

The submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers. Final decisions on accepted papers will be based on their qualities and their relevance to the theme of this special issue and should be approved by the journal editors. Manuscripts must be prepared for publication according to the journal’s Author Guidelines available at: Submissions must conform to the layout, format and page limit in the guidelines. The authors must select “SI: Cloud-Data-Security” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process.
