SP-IoTSP 2017

Special Session on Security and Privacy in Internet of Things, Services and People (SP-IoTSP)

In the envisaged Future Internet which consists of billions of digital devices, people, services and other physical objects, people will utilize these digital devices and physical objects to exchange data about themselves and their perceived surrounding environments over a web-based service infrastructure, in what we refer to as the Internet of Things, Services, and People (IoTSP). Interconnecting things, services and people via the internet improves data analysis, boosts productivity, enhances reliability, saves energy and costs, and generates new revenue opportunities through innovative business models. However, because of the heterogeneous nature of the IoTSP, more connected devices mean more attack vectors and more possibilities for hackers to target it. The frightening vulnerabilities found on IoT devices have brought IoTSP security and privacy further up the stack of issues that need to be addressed quickly. The IoTSP requires a very strong foundation with security, trust and privacy as a top priority. Without effective solutions for securing IoTSP-related data, qualified services with security and privacy concern and enhanced user acceptance and experience cannot be achieved.

The proposed special session on security and privacy in Internet of Things, Services and People (SP-IoTSP) aims to bring academia researchers as well as industry partners to meet together and exchange ideas on recent research and future directions for IoTSP security and privacy. The cutting edge results and innovative solutions will be presented with a specific focus on the safety, reliability, cyber security and data privacy challenges in IoTSP, including usable and theoretical security and privacy for software, algorithms, protocols, systems and infrastructure.

The technical topics of interest to the special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • IoTSP secure network infrastructure
  • IoTSP security protocols
  • Authentication and identification technologies and solutions
  • Threat landscapes and potential countermeasures and technologies
  • Cyber attacks detection and prevention
  • Risk analysis, mitigation, and management
  • Intrusion and Malware Detection
  • Applied Cryptography and lightweight security solutions
  • Reliable Interactions with Network Services
  • System and Data Integrity
  • Security of Big data in IoTSP
  • Identity Management and biometrics in IoTSP
  • Trustworthiness in IoTSP
  • Privacy and anonymization techniques in IoTSP
  • Adaptive Security in IoTSP
  • Privacy, policy and legal issues as well as their interaction with technological development in IoTSP
