Call for papers: Multimedia Security and Privacy Protection in the Internet of Things (IoT)

With the rapid development of the Internet of Things (IoT), large amounts of multimedia data are being generated and/or exchanged from various IoT devices, systems, and applications. However, the security and privacy of multimedia data has become a key challenge, potentially affecting the successful deployment of IoT devices in some data-sensitive applications. IPTV companies, ISPs, and mobile operators, which now have a large number of users, have launched various IoT products and provided various user services, including AI-enabled multimedia services. 

The main purpose of this special issue is to find papers on the multimedia security and privacy protection in the Internet of Things (IoT) from an academic perspective. We hope your submissions will raise and respond to new security concerns, or represent ongoing research to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of existing security concerns in IoT environments. We also welcome academic manuscripts covering security and privacy policies related to IoT and multimedia services.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to: 

  • Encryption protocols and ciphers for IoT and multimedia data security 
  • Malicious transaction detection in IoT and multimedia data 
  • Security and privacy concerns in the smart home 
  • Security architecture and platform for IoT and multimedia data
