*Security and Privacy Protection on Clouds*

Special Issue in *IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing*

The emerging paradigm of cloud computing provides a new way to address the
constraints of limited energy, capabilities, and resources. Researchers and
practitioners have embraced cloud computing as a new approach that has the
potential for a profound impact in our daily life and world economy.
However, security and privacy protection is a critical concern in the
development and adoption of cloud computing. To avoid system fragility and
defend against vulnerabilities exploration from cyber attacker, various
cyber security techniques and tools have been developed for cloud systems.
This special issue will focus on the challenging topic—“Security and
Privacy Protection on Clouds” and invites the state-of-the-art research
results to be submitted here.

*Topics *

This special issue calls for original, high-quality, high-impact research
papers related to the following broad topics, but are not limited to:

· Cloud Security in New Paradigms

· Mobile cloud security

· Mobile cloud privacy protection

· Cloud hacking and virus protection

· Cloud browser security

· Next generation fire wall for clouds

· Cloud monitoring

· Cloud incident response
