Special Issue: “15th Asia Joint Conference on Information Security (AsiaJCIS 2020)”

Theme and Scope

Information security is a multidisciplinary area that addresses the development and implementation of security mechanisms in order to protect information systems with specific purposes against potential attacks or threats. The security goal can be defined for each type of attacks. The currently relevant set of security goals includes confidentiality, integrity, availability, privacy, authenticity & trustworthiness, non-repudiation, accountability and auditability. However, with the rapid global penetration of network, different models are considered to design new solutions to realizing information security (i.e., in IoT or distributed scenarios). This attracts attention to work on information security research on modern architecture of information systems. Very recently, the AI techniques have joined this area and also acted as a double-edged sword in realizing attacks and defenses.

The main purpose of this special issue is to publish selected papers with high-quality from “15th Asia Joint Conference on Information Security (AsiaJCIS 2020).” In this special issue, we focus mainly on cryptography, network security, system security, and application security. We are interested in novel ideas, advanced techniques, comparative analysis of different methodologies, detailed surveys, and technical reviews on all aspects of cooperative communications and mechanisms in information security. This special issue also covers industrial applications and academic research contributions.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Cryptography: Applied Cryptography, Post-Quantum Cryptography, Cryptoanalysis, Lightweight Cryptography
  • Network Security: Cloud Security, NGN Security, Home Network Security, Mobile, Ad-Hoc and Sensor Network Security, VANET Security, Network RFID Security, Wireless PAN/LAN/MAN/WAN Security, P2P Network Security, FW/IDS/IPS, DoS/DDoS Attack Countermeasures, Leakage Resilience
  • System Security: System/Middleware/OS Security, Virtualization Security, Database Security, Secuyptographyre eHealth/eBusiness/eCommerce/eGoverment, Secure eVode/eContract/eCash, Blockchain, Ubiquitous Security, Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Application Security: Anti-Spam, Web Services security, SNS Security, VoIP Security, Smartphone Security, IPTV Security
  • Information Security: Management Human Resource Security, IT Assurance, Security Policy, Digital Evidence, Big Data
  • Others: Smart Grid Security, Malware Countermeasures, Content Security, ID Management and Privacy Controls, Biometrics, Security Engineering, Usable Security and Privacy, Outsourcing/Verifiable Computing
