Call For Papers: Special Issue on Adaptive Security for IoT

International Journal of Pervasive computing and Communications (IJPCC)


Several significant challenges should be addressed to fulfil the Internet of Things (IoT) vision, including security and privacy. The Internet is already under continuous threats and the addition of many additional types of devices and interaction will open new security breaches so as to spark new malicious actions. Security and privacy for the IoT remains a core challenge. The proposed special issue intends to publish ongoing research for the security and privacy models, protocols, algorithms, context-awareness for security, and devices that can be implemented in the IoT. A specific focus is on the need for IoT security and privacy to adapt to changing contexts. Areas of interest for this special issue include, but not limited to, the following topics for IoT:

  • Methods for adaptive security and privacy
  • Context reasoning, fusion, transformation, inferencing, and actuating for adaptive security and privacy
  • Identity management issues including biometrics and behavioural analysis
  • Privacy Enhanced Technologies (PET) and reducing the effect of Privacy-Invasive Technologies (PIT)
  • User surveillance via smart environment devices
  • Lightweight and low energy cryptosystems for secure ubiquitous computing
  • Protecting unattended devices to be tamper-proof, tamper-resistant or tamper-evident
  • Implementing practical test-beds that allow the analysis of the security performance of BANs
  • Vulnerabilities, threats, models and their validation
  •  Fault-tolerant, resilient, and transparent IoT architectures
  • Analytics and predictive models for adaptive security
  • Adaptive risk management and security decision-making models for IoT
  • Game theoretic models for adaptive security for IoT
  • Trust, metrics and adaptive security approaches for the IoT
