CALL FOR PAPERS

IEEE Signal Processing Society
Special Issue
IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING MAGAZINE

Special Issue on Signal Processing for Cyber-security and Privacy

Aims and Scope
Information technology and electronic communications have been rapidly applied to many spheres of human activity, including commerce,
medicine and social networking. This has led to the creation of massive electronic repositories for distributed information storage and
processing, which enables access by a large number of authorized users. The need for timely access to electronic data makes it imperative to
guarantee the security and privacy of this data. Traditionally, electronic data security has been ensured via cryptographic techniques, but these
distributed data systems require security and privacy mechanisms at all levels of the system. Thus, providing precise guarantees on the security
and privacy of electronic information requires leveraging a range of information processing techniques beyond traditional cryptography to
ensure secure distributed storage and access mechanisms. The problems of information exchange, interaction, and access lend themselves to
fundamental information processing abstractions and theoretical analysis. The tools of rate-distortion theory, distributed compression
algorithms, distributed storage codes, machine learning for feature identification and suppression, and compressive sensing and sampling
theory are fundamental and can be applied to precisely formulate and quantify the tradeoff between utility and privacy in a variety of domains.
Thus, while rate-distortion theory and information-theoretic security can provide fundamental bounds on privacy and security leakage of
distributed data systems, the information and signal processing techniques of compressive sensing, machine learning, and graphical models are
the key ingredients necessary to achieve these performance limits in a variety of applications involving streaming data (smart grid, intelligent
data collection), distributed data storage (cloud), and interactive data applications across a number of platforms. This special issue seeks to
provide a venue for ongoing research in information and signal processing for security and privacy applications across a wide variety of
domains, including communication media (e.g. ranging from wireless networks at the edge to optical backbones at the core of the Internet), to
computer systems (e.g. ranging from traditional computer architectures to distributed systems, including cloud computing).
Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to):
* Signal processing for information-theoretic security
* Data mining and analysis for anomaly and intrusion detection
* Forensic analysis: device identification, recovery of lost/corrupted information
* Information processing in the encrypted domain
* Security in distributed storage systems
* Codes for security in distributed storage and cloud computing
* Location privacy and obfuscation of mobile device positioning
* Physical layer security methods: confidentiality and authentication
* Secure identity management
* Formalized models for adversaries and threats
* Techniques to achieve covert or stealthy communication
* Stochastic models for large data repositories and for streaming data in cyber-physical systems
Submission Process
Articles submitted to this special issue must contain significant relevance to signal processing and its application to security and privacy. All
submissions will be peer reviewed according to the IEEE and Signal Processing Society guidelines for both publications.Submitted articles should
not have been published or under review elsewhere. Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/sps-ieee
using the Manuscript Central interface. Submissions to this special issue of the IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING MAGAZINE should have significant
tutorial value. Prospective authors should consult the site http://www.signalprocessingsociety.org/publications/periodicals/spm/ for guidelines
and information on paper submission.
Important Dates: Expected publication date for this special issue is September 2013.
