The main goal of this special issue is to encourage both researchers and
practitioners to share and exchange their experiences and recent studies
with a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches and novel
techniques to increase the security posture of Cloud of Things devices
(Smart sensors, 6lowpan, M2M, IoT,…).  The overall objectives are:

·         To improve the awareness of readers about cyber Security and
Privacy for Cloud-of-Things.

·         To analyze and present the state-of-the-art of the cyber Security
and privacy for Cloud-of-Things and Edge Computing and related technologies
and methodologies.

·         To highlight and discuss the recent development and emerging
trends related to cyber Security and privacy for Cloud-of-Things.

·         To propose new models, practical solutions and technological
advances related to cyber Security and privacy for Cloud-of-Things.

·         Discusses new cyber Security and privacy models, prototypes and
protocols for the Cloud of Things environment.


Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited
to) the following:

·         Cybersecurity dynamics theory in Cloud of things devices;

·         Cybersecurity dynamics simulation in Cloud of things

·         Cybersecurity dynamics modelling technologies in Cloud of things

·         Computer forensic investigation in cloud  of things;
