Springer International Journal of Information Security, Special Issue on IoT Security and Privacy, (Submission Due 1 October 2018) [posted here 03/5/18]
Guest Editors: akeshi Takahashi (National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Japan), Rodrigo Roman Castro (Universidad de Malaga, Spain), Ryan Ko (University of Waikato, New Zealand), Bilhanan Silverajan (Tampere University of Technology, Finland), and Said Tabet (Dell EMC, USA).

The Internet is gradually transforming from a communication platform for conventional IT appliances into the Internet of Things (IoT), increasingly interconnecting many assorted devices and sensors. These devices are generally referred as IoT devices, and many of them are inexpensive and can be constrained in terms of energy, bandwidth and memory. The establishment of IoT ecosystems in various domains is bringing multiple benefits to human users and companies alike. Example of such domains include Smart Homes, Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet and even Intelligent Transportation Systems. However, the IoT as a whole - including related paradigms such as Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) - is susceptible to a multitude of threats. In fact, many IoT devices currently are insecure and have many security vulnerabilities. For example, many vulnerable IoT devices which have been infected with malware have subsequently become comprised into large botnets, resulting in devastating DDOS attacks. Consequently, ensuring the security of such IoT ecosystems - before, during, and after an attack takes place - is a crucial issue for our society at this moment. This special issue aims to collect contributions by leading-edge researchers from academia and industry, show the latest research results in the field of IoT security and privacy, and provide valuable information to researchers as well as practitioners, standards developers and policymakers. Its aim is to focus on the research challenges and issues in IoT security. Manuscripts regarding novel algorithms, architectures, implementations, and experiences are welcome. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Secure protocols for IoT devices
- Privacy solutions and privacy helpers for IoT environments
- Trust frameworks and secure/private collaboration mechanisms for IoT environments
- Secure management and self-healing for IoT environments
- Operative systems security for IoT devices
- Security diagnosis tools for IoT devices
- Threat and vulnerability detection in IoT environments
- Anomaly detection and prevention mechanisms in IoT networks
- Case studies of malware analysis in IoT environments
- IoT forensics and digital evidence
- Testbeds and experimental facilities for IoT security analysis and research
- Standardization activities for IoT security

SSR 2018 4th Conference on Security Standards Research, Darmstadt, Germany, November 26-27, 2018. (Submission Due 22 June 2018) [posted here 5/14/18]
The purpose of this conference is to discuss the many research problems deriving from studies of existing standards, the development of revisions to existing standards, and the exploration of completely new areas of standardisation. Indeed, many security standards bodies are only beginning to address the issue of transparency, so that the process of selecting security techniques for standardisation can be seen to be as scientific and unbiased as possible. This year, we hope to tap into the current trend, which has seen more standardisation efforts being open to interaction with academics. This follows in the footsteps of IETFÕs design approach for TLS 1.3, which has seen substantial academic input. Similarly, several post-quantum efforts have seen interaction between academia and industry. This conference is intended to cover the full spectrum of research on security standardisation, including, but not restricted to, work on cryptographic techniques (including ANSI, IEEE, IETF, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27, ITU-T and NIST), security management, security evaluation criteria, network security, privacy and identity management, smart cards and RFID tags, biometrics, security modules, and industry-specific security standards (e.g. those produced by the payments, telecommunications and computing industries for such things as payment protocols, mobile telephony and trusted computing).

CRiSIS 2018 13th International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems, Arcachon, France, October 16-18, 2018. (Submission Due 6 July 2018) [posted here 5/28/18]
The International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems 2018 will be the 13th in a series dedicated to security issues in Internet-related applications, networks and systems. Internet has become essential for the exchange of information between user groups and organizations from different backgrounds and with different needs and objectives. These users are exposed to increasing risks regarding security and privacy, due to the development of more and more sophisticated online attacks, the growth of Cyber Crime, etc. Attackers nowadays do not lack motivation and they are more and more experienced. To make matters worse, for performing attacks have become easily accessible. Moreover, the increasing complexity as well as the immaturity of new technologies such as pervasive, mobile and wireless devices and networks, raise new security challenges. In this context, new security mechanisms and techniques should be deployed to achieve an assurance level acceptable for critical domains such as energy, transportation, health, defence, banking, critical infrastructures, embedded systems and networks, avionics systems, etc. The CRiSIS conference offers a remarkable forum for computer and network security actors from industry, academia and government to meet, exchange ideas and present recent advances on Internet-related security threats and vulnerabilities, and on the solutions that are needed to counter them. The topics addressed by CRiSIS range from the analysis of risks, attacks to networks and system survivability, to security models, security mechanisms and privacy enhancing technologies. The authors are invited to submit research results as well as practical experiment or deployment reports. Industrial papers about applications or case studies are also welcomed in different domains (e.g., telemedicine, banking, e-government, e-learning, e-commerce, critical infrastructures, mobile networks, embedded applications, etc.).

EURASIP Journal on Information Security,   Editors-in-Chief: Stefan Katzenbeisser
EURASIP Journal on Information Security aims to bring together researchers and practitioners dealing with the general field of information security, with a particular emphasis on the use of signal processing tools in adversarial environments. As such, it addresses all works whereby security is achieved through a combination of techniques from cryptography, computer security, machine learning and multimedia signal processing. Application domains lie, for example, in secure storage, retrieval and tracking of multimedia data, secure outsourcing of computations, forgery detection of multimedia data, or secure use of biometrics. The journal also welcomes survey papers that give the reader a gentle introduction to one of the topics covered as well as papers that report large-scale experimental evaluations of existing techniques. Pure cryptographic papers are outside the scope of the journal. The journal also welcomes proposals for Special Issues. All papers must be submitted online at http://jis.eurasipjournals.com/manuscript.  More information can be found at http://jis.eurasipjournals.com.
