[DMANET] CFP - Si on Security for Smart Grid and Internet of Things Applications

Call for papers

Int. J. of Internet Technology and Secured Transactions

Special Issue on: "Security for Smart Grid and Internet of Things

Guest Editors:
Dr. Mohamed Amine Ferrag, Guelma University, Algeria
Dr. Ahmed Ahmim, University of Larbi Tebessi, Algeria
Dr. Al-Sakib Khan Pathan, Southeast University, Bangladesh

Today, Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm in the development and
evolution of the internet. The IoT is able, via modern wireless
telecommunications, to identify and co-operate digitally with physical
objects (or 'things') in order to exchange data between physical and
virtual worlds. Due to recent developments in IoT related to electronics,
software, sensors, actuators, there is active research interest in the
connection between IoT and smart grid. With active and passive attacks,
this connection makes the attacker's task easier to disrupt the network and
disclose the object privacy. However, the smart grid with IoT cannot be
widely deployed without considering the security requirements, namely,
authentication, integrity, non-repudiation, access control, and privacy.

This special issue will address the latest advances and challenges in novel
techniques, algorithms, architectures and experiences within the field of
security, privacy and trust for smart grid and internet of things

Subject Coverage

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Intrusion detection system (IDS)/intrusion prevention system (IPS)
Game theoretical models of smart grid security
Cryptography, key management, authorisation and access control for IoT
Sensor networks and RFID security
Secure software development for IoT
IoT security issues in P2P, distributed, and parallel systems
Privacy-preserving systems
Protocol security for IoT
Embedded systems security for IoT
