Information security and privacy are essential needs for our modern society in which information technology and services pervade every aspect of our lives. Particularly, security and privacy of multimedia big data – which is becoming a part of daily life for accessing different systems, services and applications – is a serious issue. However, it is challenging to address as technology develops at rapid speed and our systems become ever more complex. The explosion of multimedia big data in Internet of Things (IoT) systems has created unprecedented opportunities and fundamental security and privacy challenges, as it is not just big in volume, but also unstructured and multi-modal.

This special issue intends to bring together state-of-art research and developments in security and privacy of IoT and secure IoT services, novel attacks on IoT services, novel defences for IOT service attacks, and forensics and IoT security analysis. We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as comprehensive review articles that seek to understand the various techniques addressing real-world IoT challenges and providing future improvements for security, privacy and forensics for IoT systems.
