Call For Papers

As information technology and the Internet become more and more ubiquitous and pervasive in our daily lives, there is an essential need for a more thorough understanding of information security and privacy issues and concerns. The International Journal of Information Security and Privacy (IJISP) creates and fosters a forum where research in the theory and practice of information security and privacy is advanced. IJISP publishes high quality papers dealing with a wide range of issues, ranging from technical, legal, regulatory, organizational, managerial, cultural, ethical and human aspects of information security and privacy, through a balanced mix of theoretical and empirical research articles, case studies, book reviews, tutorials, and editorials. This journal encourages submission of manuscripts that present research frameworks, methods, methodologies, theory development and validation, case studies, simulation results and analysis, technological architectures, infrastructure issues in design, and implementation and maintenance of secure and privacy preserving initiatives.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Machine Learning Techniques for Information Security and Data Privacy
Submission Date: 2017-06-01

Current technology for information security and data privacy often does not mature completely because of regular changes in computer, network, and the general evolution of information and communication technology (ICT). Many improvements, from different perspectives, should be considered in the technology, so that the challenging nature of the requirements for the current and future computing environments can be accommodated. Untill now, efficient solutions for information security and data privacy, remains an elusive goal and a big challenge. Promising methodologies and technologies are required for the design and development of effective intelligent solutions. Machine Learning (ML) is a field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) that is concerned with constructing programs/systems that can improve their behavior with experience. Various machine learning techniques can be used for information security and data privacy to lead a secure information system to the extent possible. The focus of the special issue is on high quality research that addresses paradigms, development, applications and implications in the field of machine learning for addressing unique security issues introduced by new computing paradigms. Recommended Topics - Anomaly detection - Autonomous and adaptive security - Big data and digital forensics - Biometrics - Critical information and infrastructure security - Cryptography and cryptanalysis - Cloud forensics and security - Cyber physical system security - Dimensionality reduction - Frequent event patterns mining - Information assurance - Information security audits - Intrusion detection and prevention - Network security and defense - Malware analysis and detection - Misuse detection - Mobile networks and devices security - Security in Software Defined Networks (SDN) - Security in social networks - Outlier detection - Spam filtering - Ransomware analysis and detection - Rule mining and optimization - Recent trends, technologies and applications - Security risk analysis, modelling, evaluation and management - Trust and privacy - Video surveillance

Special Issue on Recent and Advanced Intrusion Detection Systems for Current and Modern Networks and Systems
Submission Date: 2017-06-30

Nowadays, the Internet is indispensable for our modern life, where the different social, military, economic and academic sector are connected to the Internet. This inter connection between so many different sectors make our life easier. In return, it exposes our data, services and systems to different forms of threats. To deal with these problems different prevention mechanisms are invented like cryptography, firewall, antivirus. Sadly, this first line of defense failed to ensure the current security requirements. The intrusion detection system (IDS) represents a second line of defense that is build in order to protect networks and systems against the various forms of treats and attacks. It represents a key tool when prevention mechanisms fail. An IDS could be defined as a tool that detects all suspicious events in the network or system and prevents the network administrator to take the cons measure. Actual, the prevention tools are becoming less and less effective, therefore IDS increasingly required to protect our network and system. This special issue aims to offer a collection of prestigious papers that treat the actual challenge of intrusion detection systems, where modern IDSs must be adapted to the current requirements of networks, systems and platforms. In addition, the form of attacks and threats are more and more sophisticated representing another challenge that must be addressed. The essential targets of this special issue are the intrusion detection in high-speed networks, wireless networks, sensor networks and vehicular ad-hoc networks. Moreover, intrusion detection that are deployed in cloud systems (ICS) and smart grids are in the heart of this SI interest.
