Cyber-of-Things: Cyber-Crimes and Cyber-Security Minitrack

As technology is incorporated into more aspects of daily life, cyber-crimes and cyber-security evolve and diversify. This results in the need to develop innovative managerial, technological and strategic solutions. Increasing mobile device sales; increasing digital evidence requests in legal environments; increasing generation and storage of digital transactions through the integration of the ‘Internet of Things’; and the development of cyber-physical attacks, all highlight the broad societal impacts of technology that encourage data intensive environments.

A variety of responses are needed to address the resulting concerns. There is a need to research a) technology investigation efficiency, b) technical integration and solution impact, c) the abuse of technology through cyber-physical attacks along with d) the cost effective analysis and evaluation of large data repositories. Hence, identifying and validating technical solutions to access data from new technologies, investigating the impact that these solutions have on industry, and understanding how technologies can be abused from a cyber-physical perspective is crucial to the viability of government, commercial, and legal communities.

The minitrack will solicit submissions in the following areas:

  • Research agendas that investigate vulnerabilities and solutions to devices that belong to the ‘Cyber-of-Things’ (e.g. Cyber Physical Systems, and Internet of Things).
  • Research agendas that identify cyber-crimes, digital forensics issues, security vulnerabilities, solutions and approaches to solving investigation problems.
  • Research agendas that investigate cost effective retrieval, analysis and evaluation of large data repositories.
  • Papers that combine research and applied practice.

This minitrack provides a forum for integrating relevant, vital academic security research activity with the broader international community.
