Franqueira, Virginia N. L., Inácio, Pedro Ricardo Morais, Mileva, Aleksandra, Conti, Mauro, Leppänen, Ville, Lopes, Raul H.C. (2019) Guest Editorial Special Issue on Security and Forensics of Internet of Things: Problems and Solutions. IEEE Internet of Things Journal, 6 (4). pp. 6363-6367. ISSN 2327-4662. (doi:10.1109/jiot.2019.2926635) (KAR id:79542)


The Internet of Things (IoT) has experienced significant growth over recent years and Gartner predicts that, by 2020, 21 billion IoT endpoints will be in use. The potential behind widespread usage of small devices capable of collecting, transmitting, or acting upon data has been fueling interest both from industry and academia. Security and forensics are two of the topics facing major challenges in this paradigm, on par with or even more prominent than other computing paradigms. Aspects such as low processing power and small storage capacity of such IoT devices contribute to their typically poor built-in security and forensics capabilities. Their reliance on cloud computing and mobile apps to operate and provide services increases the attack surface, distributing the collection of digital evidence and making reconstruction activities (to answer questions as what, where, when, who, why, and how) harder.
