Today, Internet of Things (IoT) is a novel paradigm in the development and evolution of the internet. The IoT is able, via modern wireless telecommunications, to identify and co-operate digitally with physical objects (or ‘things’) in order to exchange data between physical and virtual worlds. Due to recent developments in IoT related to electronics, software, sensors, actuators, there is active research interest in the connection between IoT and smart grid. With active and passive attacks, this connection makes the attacker’s task easier to disrupt the network and disclose the object privacy. However, the smart grid with IoT cannot be widely deployed without considering the security requirements, namely, authentication, integrity, non-repudiation, access control, and privacy.
This special issue will address the latest advances and challenges in novel techniques, algorithms, architectures and experiences within the field of security, privacy and trust for smart grid and internet of things applications.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Intrusion detection system (IDS)/intrusion prevention system (IPS)
- Game theoretical models of smart grid security
- Cryptography, key management, authorisation and access control for IoT
- Sensor networks and RFID security
- Secure software development for IoT
- IoT security issues in P2P, distributed, and parallel systems
- Privacy-preserving systems
- Protocol security for IoT
- Embedded systems security for IoT
