Special Issue "Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing Environment

Organization: MDPI
Categories: Science, Engineering
Event Date: 2021-07-31 to 2021-07-31 Abstract Due: 2021-07-31

The cloud-based system consists of a combination of hardware and software hosted by a third party. It provides significant benefits and has been widely adopted in various industries. Despite the benefits, the system has various security and privacy concerns. In particular, the volume of attacks on the cloud-based system is constantly increasing, with the number more than doubling in 2019 according to the 2020 Trust wave Global Security Report. Additionally, as a result of the system complexity and its dependencies on the cloud-assisted system, cyber-attacks are likely to increase. There is a pressing need to develop techniques and methods to deal with the new generation of cloud-specific cyberattacks, which pose various potential risks for the cloud-based system.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to enhance knowledge of secure and privacy-aware cloud computing in both the industry and research communities. Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied articles addressing new approaches, research results, case studies, and best practices.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

Security and privacy modelling in the cloud-based system;
Requirements engineering;
Security/privacy/trust issues in cloud models;
Vulnerabilities in cloud infrastructure;
Cyber threat intelligence models for the cloud-based system;
Identity and access management;
Secure data sharing and management in the cloud;
Privacy-enhanced technology in cloud computing;
Secure cloud storage;
Concepts, theory, standardization and modelling, and methodologies for sensor-cloud systems;
Attack prediction and prevention using machine learning;
Multi-tenancy related security/privacy issues.
