Special Issue on Security in Cloud Computing
Submission Date: 2017-05-31

Cloud computing describes highly scalable computing resources provided as an external service via the internet on a pay-as-you-go basis. With the rapid development of cloud computing technologies, an increasing number of individual and organizations choose cloud platforms to store and deal with their data of various kinds. Cloud computing has appealing benefits including relief of the storage and computation burden, fine-grained data sharing, and cost savings in terms of hardware and software, etc. Nevertheless, there are many new security challenges in cloud computing environment, which have never been addressed in the traditional computing and network environments. Security and privacy issues have severely impeded the practical adoption of cloud technologies. To address these critical issues, it is indispensable to propose and design new algorithms and methods for security in cloud computing. The objective of this special issue is to collect high-quality research contributions to address the security concerns in cloud computing. The main topics of interest include but are not limited to the following: Security architectures for cloud computing Security and privacy in outsourcing data and computation Visualization for security in cloud computing Cryptographic technologies for secure cloud storage Access control mechanisms on cloud data Searchable encryption Proof of remote data integrity and possession Data forensics in clouds Authentication protocols for secure cloud computing Privacy and accountability in cloud storage Submission Format and Guideline All submitted papers must be clearly written in excellent English and contain only original work, which has not been published by or is currently under review for any other journal or conference. A detailed submission guideline is available as “Guide to Authors” at All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through Elsevier Editorial System (EES). The authors must select as “SI – Cloud Security - Li” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. The EES website is located at: Requests for additional information should be addressed to the guest editors.
