Special Issue
Security and Privacy for Connected Cyber-Physical Systems, 
to appear in the ACM Transactions on Cyber-Physical Systems (TCPS) is


Short information for contributors:

This special issue focuses on security & privacy aspects of emerging trends
and applications involving Machine-to-Machine Cyber Physical Systems (M2M
CPSs) in both generic and specific domain of interests, such as, but not
limited to, Safety-Critical Infrastructures, Autonomous Systems, Smart
Cities, Intelligent Vehicles, Smart-Health, etc. We invite original
research articles proposing innovative solutions to improve IoT security
and privacy, taking into account the low resource characteristics of CPS
components, the distributed nature of CPSs, and connectivity constraints of
IoT devices.

Aims and Scopes:

Special topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

 -  Machine learning-enabled security solutions for M2M CPS
 -  Blockchain-based privacy and security solutions for M2M CPS
 -  Trusted and verifiable computation in CPS devices
 -  Attestation of IoT devices and IoT swarms
 -  M2M CPS digital forensic
 -  Privacy preserving and Secure Multiparty Computation applications
    for M2M CPS
 -  Lightweight secure protocol for CPS
