Objectives

The widespread use of information and communications technology (ICT) has created a global platform for the exchange of ideas, goods and services; the benefits of which are enormous. However, it has also created boundless opportunities for fraud and deception. Cyber-crime is one of the biggest growth industry around the globe, whether it be in the form of violation of company policies, fraud, hate crime, extremism, child pornography, or terrorism. It is therefore paramount that the security industry raises its game to combat these threats. This is an issue of global importance as researchers, government officials, company executives and law enforcement agencies all over the world are struggling to cope.

Advancement in the field of information security and digital forensics are expected to continue increasing during the foreseeable future and the IJESDF is designed to meet the demand for researchers to publish high quality peer reviewed publications. The requirements of industry are varied, challenging and continually changing, with cyber security at the forefront of the knowledge explosion. Articles will focus on research and development, practical knowledge and they present an unbiased review, useful information and techniques.


Readership

The intended audience will include members in academia, public and private sector, students and those who are interested in and will benefit from electronic security and digital forensics. In addition the new journal will become a forum for building a community that will engage in dialogue and gain knowledge from each other.


Contents

IJESDF publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in electronic security and digital forensics will occasionally be published.

    • Elliptical cryptography

       

      Cryptographers in China have have developed a new type of cryptography that can better resist so-called offline dictionary attacks, denial of service (DoS) hacks, and cracks involving eavesdroppers. Their approach, reported in the International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics, extends and improves a type of cryptography that uses an intractable mathematical problem as [...]
