Special Issue on Security and Privacy for the Transformative Technologies in 5G and Beyond
Submission Date: 2021-06-30

The IEEE Open Journal of Communications Society (OJ-COMS) invites manuscript submissions in the area of Security and Privacy for the Transformative Technologies in 5G and Beyond. 5G is expected to support supremely high data rates and extremely low latency to enabling a variety of applications, e.g., remote control of smart vehicles, and virtual/augmented reality. Due to diversified and stringent requirements in different applications, 5G also needs an intelligent way of managing the various resources including computing, networking and storage resources. By integrating disruptive technologies, 5G and beyond-5G networks satisfy the increasing performance demands and provide ultra-reliable and affordable broadband access everywhere, not only to cellular hand-carried devices, but also to a massive number of devices in machine-to-machine communications, cyber-physical systems, and Internet-of-Things. Artificial intelligence, blockchain, mobile edge computing, software-defined network and massive MIMO, are the transformative technologies that are all radically redefining the network demands, while simultaneously enriching the services that the future networks can offer. Although 5G and beyond-5G offer a multitude of benefits to the emerging applications, they are susceptible to the malicious or inadvertent introductions of vulnerabilities, such as malicious software or hardware, counterfeit components, and poor designs. Even worse, these new technologies are facing a series of inherent security and privacy threats, which intensify the vulnerabilities of the 5G networks. In addition, vastly increased numbers of devices and an elevated use of virtualization result in more 5G security threats and a broader, multifaceted attack surface. To realize strong and healthy communication networks, exploring the approaches to address the security and privacy threats are vital for both industry and academia. This special issue will be focusing on secure and privacy-preserving solutions to address the various problems in the key techniques for 5G and beyond-5G networks. Possible topics include but are not limited to: - Security and Privacy for Mobile Edge Computing/Caching in 5G and Beyond - Privacy-preserving Machine Learning or Deep Learning in 5G and Beyond - Adversarial Machine Learning or Deep Learning in 5G and Beyond - Trustworthiness and Fairness in Artificial Intelligence for 5G and Beyond - Security and Privacy for Blockchain Technology in 5G and Beyond - Security and Privacy for Data-centric Networks in 5G and Beyond - Security and Privacy for Fog Computing in 5G and Beyond - Security and Privacy for Software-Defined Networks - Security and Privacy for Network Function Virtualization - Security and Privacy for Drone Communications in 5G and Beyond - Physical layer security for Non-orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) in 5G and Beyond - Physical Layer Security for Massive MIMO in 5G and Beyond - Physical Layer Security for New Radio in 5G and Beyond

Special Issue on Optimization and Economics of Fog/Edge Networks
Submission Date: 2021-07-01

The IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society (OJ-COMS) invites manuscript submissions in the area of optimization and economics of edge and fog networks. The recent increase in the number of devices gaining significant computing power and Internet connectivity has fueled the rise of fog and edge computing paradigms, in which mobile applications access computing resources not just at remote cloud servers but near-by edge servers. However, as edge and fog computing become more popular, optimizing access to these (limited) resources has become an increasingly urgent problem. Economic mechanisms can modulate access for different users, yet existing economic theories may fail to account for fog/edge computing-specific challenges such as the pervasiveness of computing resources and heterogeneity of application performance requirements. This special issue solicits papers in all areas related to the optimization and economics of fog and edge computing. We particularly welcome papers that address or are relevant to communication in edge or fog computing systems. We will consider papers that employ any methods to propose or examine new ideas in edge/fog computing, e.g., proposing or analyzing mathematical models and algorithms, or providing experimental results and/or implementation designs. We also welcome policy or position papers that advocate regulatory mechanisms or societal considerations for managing edge and fog computing systems. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to: - Joint optimization of computing and communication resources - AI-based methods for configuring or managing edge and fog computing systems - Application-specific needs for edge and fog resources, e.g., distributed sensing or learning applications - Tradeoffs between application performance, resource utilization, energy expenditures, and other performance metrics - Pricing of edge and fog computing resources - Competition between edge and fog resource providers - Allocation of edge and fog resources to competing users - Policy recommendations for edge and fog computing systems - Data management, Novel service, Security and privacy in edge and fog networks - Blockchain and smart contract applications in edge/fog computing - Game-theoretic models for edge and fog computing
