The dynamics of existing computing models and computing environments change frequently, with the rapid development of mobile computing, big data, and artificial intelligence, Internet-of-Things (IoT), blockchain technology, and many other large-scale computing environments. For example, in IoT and big data environments, many traditional solutions and tools are not suitable. Migrating conventional systems to the new computing environment may cause many unexpected mistakes and errors, resulting in an increasing number of security, trust, and privacy issues. With the popularity of blockchain technology, decentralized solutions are also leading to big changes in current computing environments. Many blockchain-based systems like PKI, audit systems, and insurance systems are under construction. The adoption of blockchain has the potential to help solve the issue of data integrity and transparency.
This Special Issue focuses on all security, trust, and privacy issues, and all efforts to investigate and address these challenges in current new computing environments.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
User authentication in new computing environments
Risk analysis and intrusion response
Identity and access management in IoT
Measurement of IoT privacy leakage
Mobile cloud security
New cryptographic techniques
Security and privacy in big data
Blockchain in new computing environments
IoT security and privacy
Usable security in new computing environments
Cyber intelligence techniques
