  2. Researchers working in the field of Cloud/Fog/Edge Computing for IoT Security and Privacy.
  3. Researchers working in the field of  Blockchain, AI driven Fog Computing based frameworks for Botnet analysis, detection, and prevention.
  4. Researchers working in the field of vulnerability assessment of IoT networks against Botnet attack.
  5. Adversarial attacks in data and security analytics of large scale constrained networks .

Call for Paper:

Attacks in modern cyber infrastructures like the Internet of Things, Cloud computing and Smart Grid have raised questions on the prevalent cyber defense technologies and mechanisms. It is important to understand and analyze the various threats and vulnerabilities associated with these large-scale infrastructures. On the one hand, with advancements in the field of AI and Big data, the scope for adaption of intelligent methods in cyber security has gained wide attention. On the other hand, attacks against intelligent mechanisms are also being reported in recent times. The challenge is to design frameworks that make learning fast and dynamic and efficiently predict the IoT network’s state. Cloud platforms can provision authentication, enforce security mechanisms, and support security analytics of large scale IoT networks. Fog computing platforms will help in reducing the latency of data and security analysis. However, when cloud/fog based security solutions are implemented in IoT networks, the inherent vulnerabilities of IoT networks make such security mechanisms highly vulnerable to attacks as well..

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working in the field of design of efficient Fog/Cloud Computing based platforms to secure the Internet of Things environment. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Intelligence in Cyber Attacks and Cyber Security
    • AI, ML, Deep learning and Automation in Cyber Security
    • Intelligence Driven Cyber Security Platforms
    • Game Theory in security management
    • Adversarial machine learning
    • AI Fuzzing and Anti AI Activist Attacks
    • Blockchain and Smart Contract based Cyber Security
    • Intelligent methods for Threat profiling and malware analysis
  • IoT Botnet Attacks and Security Solution
    • Present-day and New IoT Security Threats
    • Cryptojacking and Bitcoin Crashes
    • Chatbots and Botnets in Cybercrimes
    • Zero Day Attacks in Fog/Cloud infrastructures
    • Malware Attacks in Internet of Things
    • Cyber Attacks in Smart Grid Networks
    • Side-channel attacks
    • Design of Fog/Cloud Platform for IoT/IIoT Security

Important dates:

Paper submission: 15 November 2022

Acceptance notification: Continuous procedure w.r.t submission.

Revised manuscript due (Final submission): Seven days after first review comment.  All submissions must be finalized before 25 November 2022.
