Springer International Journal of Information Security Special Issue on
"IoT Security and Privacy"


Call for Papers

The Internet is gradually transforming from a communication platform for
conventional IT appliances into the Internet of Things (IoT),
increasingly interconnecting many assorted devices and sensors. These
devices are generally referred as IoT devices, and many of them are
inexpensive and can be constrained in terms of energy, bandwidth and
memory. The establishment of IoT ecosystems in various domains is
bringing multiple benefits to human users and companies alike. Example
of such domains include Smart Homes, Smart Cities, the Industrial
Internet and even Intelligent Transportation Systems. However, the IoT
as a whole – including related paradigms such as Machine-to-Machine
(M2M) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) – is susceptible to a multitude
of threats. In fact, many IoT devices currently are insecure and have
many security vulnerabilities. For example, many vulnerable IoT devices
which have been infected with malware have subsequently become comprised
into large botnets, resulting in devastating DDOS attacks. Consequently,
ensuring the security of such IoT ecosystems – before, during, and after
an attack takes place – is a crucial issue for our society at this moment.

This special issue aims to collect contributions by leading-edge
researchers from academia and industry, show the latest research results
in the field of IoT security and privacy, and provide valuable
information to researchers as well as practitioners, standards
developers and policymakers. Its aim is to focus on the research
challenges and issues in IoT security. Manuscripts regarding novel
algorithms, architectures, implementations, and experiences are welcome.

Topics include but are not limited to:

Secure protocols for IoT devices
Privacy solutions and privacy helpers for IoT environments
Trust frameworks and secure/private collaboration mechanisms for IoT
Secure management and self-healing for IoT environments
Operative systems security for IoT devices
Security diagnosis tools for IoT devices
Threat and vulnerability detection in IoT environments
Anomaly detection and prevention mechanisms in IoT networks
Case studies of malware analysis in IoT environments
IoT forensics and digital evidence
Testbeds and experimental facilities for IoT security analysis and research
Standardization activities for IoT security
Security and privacy solutions tailored to specific IoT domains and
