Cyber-Physical Systems Contribute to our special issue on Security and Privacy in Internet of Things

Cyber-Physical Systems

A cyber-physical system (CPS) is a large complex system designed to leverage advanced information communication technologies to enable the monitoring and control of physical systems, leading to enhanced capability, adaptability, scalability, resiliency, safety, security, and usability of the systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) provides the communication network infrastructure that enables the connectivity of sensors that monitor physical objects, further supporting CPS. With the development of IoT, a number of critical infrastructural systems, including the smart grid, smart transportation, smart healthcare, smart manufacturing, the smart building, smart cities, etc. can be developed and deployed. Nonetheless, before massively deploying IoT to support those smart-world systems, the security and privacy issues of IoT must be seriously addressed.

The papers in this special issue will focus on the state-of-the-art research, the challenges, and solutions in all aspects of security and privacy issues in IoT. The special issue welcomes the submission of high quality original work in both theoretical and experimental research areas.

In this special issue, we solicit papers that cover topics of interest that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Vulnerability and Threat Assessment in IoT
  • Theoretical Foundation and Models in IoT Security and Privacy
  • New Architecture for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Protocol and Algorithm Design for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Identification and Mitigation for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Machine Learning for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Cloud/Edge Computing for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Big Data for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Simulation and Testbed for IoT Security and Privacy
  • Cases Studies for IoT Security and Privacy
