Featured article: Fog computing security: a review of current applications and security solutions

This review by Khan et al. analyzes real world fog computing applications to identify their potential security flaws.  Highlighting vulnerabilities in fog platforms, this review provides an important resource for readers and developers to foresee security measures and their challenges while designing new fog systems to protect confidentiality, integrity and availability for those systems and their users.

Call for papers: Recent advances in cyber security and privacy of multimedia big data in smart systems

New Content Item

The explosion of multimedia big data has created unprecedented opportunities and fundamental security challenges as they are not just big in volume, but also unstructured and multi-modal. The massive transmission of connected devices in the IoT has generated enormous demand for robust security in response to the growing demand of billions of connected devices worldwide.

Aims and scope

The Journal of Cloud Computing: Advances, Systems and Applications (JoCCASA) will publish research articles on all aspects of Cloud Computing. Principally, articles will address topics that are core to Cloud Computing, focusing on the Cloud applications, the Cloud systems, and the advances that will lead to the Clouds of the future. Comprehensive review and survey articles that offer up new insights, and lay the foundations for further exploratory and experimental work, are also relevant.

Published articles will impart advanced theoretical grounding and practical application of Clouds and related systems as are offered up by the numerous possible combinations of internet-based software, development stacks and database availability, and virtualized hardware for storing, processing, analysing and visualizing data. Where relevant, Clouds should be scrutinized alongside other paradigms such Peer to Peer (P2P) computing, Cluster computing, Grid computing, and so on. Thorough examination of Clouds with respect to issues of management, governance, trust and privacy, and interoperability, are also in scope.

Cloud Computing is now a topic of significant impact and, while it may represent an evolution in technology terms, it is revolutionising the ways in which both academia and industry are thinking and acting. The Journal of Cloud Computing, Advances, Systems and Applications (JoCCASA) has been launched to offer a high quality journal geared entirely towards the research that will offer up future generations of Clouds. The journal publishes research that addresses the entire Cloud stack, and as relates Clouds to wider paradigms and topics.
