IEEE OJ-COMS 2020 : Special Issue on Cyber Forensics for Emerging Technologies, IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society
Call For Papers
Emerging technologies, such as internet of things (IoT), cloud computing, edge computing, software-defined network (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV), have already shown their potential to heavily impact modern life. However, the widespread adoption of those technologies is still being hindered by various serious security and privacy concerns. Moreover, the cyber forensics is another critical concern with the adoption of those modern technologies.
However, due to the unique nature of these technologies and non-trivial challenges in offering security and forensics solutions for them, there exist several open research problems that are critical in ensuring a safer adoption to the modern era to provide better security guarantee and ensure proper forensics procedure.
This special issue on cyber forensics for emerging technologies aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to publish novel solutions to ensure better protection in emerging technologies. This section invites submissions on new attacks and solutions on emerging technologies (e.g., IoT, cloud/edge computing, and SDN/NFV) that shed light on various security and forensics problems and provide their effective solutions.
The topics of interests related to cyber forensics for emerging technologies include, but are not limited to:
Forensics in Cloud Computing
Virtual Network Security
Data Protection in Clouds
Trusted Computing in Clouds
Cloud Security Auditing
Risk Analysis for Clouds
Security and Privacy of Federated Clouds and Edge Computing
