Special Issues
Special Issue on Security and Privacy Protection vs Sustainable Development
Submission Date: 2017-08-01

Our increasingly interconnected society relies on the security of the ICT infrastructures underpinning public transportations, financial services, smart factories and cities, etc. Moreover, these ICT infrastructures are a rich source of data (e.g., data collected from our personal and daily activities, such as trip information and medical records), which can be subject to criminal exploitation and abuse. Therefore, it is unsurprising that security and privacy protection remain ongoing research topics. Another key societal challenges is climate change, and increasingly it is recognized that when we design ICT infrastructures, including security and privacy protection solutions, we should ensure their impact on the environment. In other words, we need to design green solutions for security and privacy (e.g., efficiency or reduced energy usage during data exchange and processing), including for lightweight devices and deployment (e.g., Internet of Things, Wireless Sensor Networks and Mobile Computing). The aim of this special issue is to solicit contributions from both academia and industry describing novel lightweight or green sustainable security and privacy solutions, as well as concrete use cases, which can be deployed in our ICT infrastructures underpinning the various critical infrastructure sectors. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Methods and models for sustainable security solutions - Optimization techniques for sustainable security solutions - Cloud automation techniques for sustainable security solutions - Efficient cloud brokering services - Cloud pricing models for sustainable security solutions - Security driven cloud configuration management - Efficient computing, communication and security architectures - Energy-aware secure mobile solutions - Energy-aware Internet of Things solutions - Energy-efficient management and control of ICT resources - Energy efficiency in data centers - Energy efficiency and quality of service - Biometric-based sustainable tools - Energy consumption measurements, models, and monitoring tools - Security and Privacy for resource-constrained devices - Algorithms for reduced power, energy and heat - Lightweight cryptography algorithms and protocols
