Influence of Human Factors on Cyber Security within Healthcare Organisations: A Systematic Review

Cybersecurity is increasingly becoming a prominent concern among health- care providers in adopting digital technologies for improving the quality of care delivered to patients. The recent reports on cyber attacks, such as ransomware and WannaCry, …

Self-Configurable Cyber-Physical Intrusion Detection for Smart Homes Using Reinforcement Learning

The modern Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart home is a challenging environment to secure: devices change, new vulnerabilities are discovered and often remain unpatched, and different users interact with their devices differently and have different …

ARIES: A Novel Multivariate Intrusion Detection System for Smart Grid

The advent of the Smart Grid (SG) raises severe cybersecurity risks that can lead to devastating consequences. In this paper, we present a novel anomaly-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS), called ARIES (smArt gRid Intrusion dEtection System), …

Cache-Based Privacy Preserving Solution for Location and Content Protection in Location-Based Services

Location-Based Services (LBSs) are playing an increasingly important role in people’s daily activities nowadays. While enjoying the convenience provided by LBSs, users may lose privacy since they report their personal information to the untrusted LBS …

TT-SVD: an Efficient Sparse Decision Making Model with Two-way Trust Recommendation in the AI Enabled IoT Systems

The convergence of AI and IoT enables data to be quickly explored and turned into vital decisions, and however, there are still some challenging issues to be further addressed. For example, lacking of enough data in AI-based decision making …

An Efficient Attribute-based Multi-Keyword Search Scheme in Encrypted Keyword Generation

With the growing popularity of cloud computing in recent years, data owners (DOs) now prefer to outsource their data to cloud servers and allow the specific data users (DUs) to retrieve the data. Searchable encryption is an important tool to provide …

Dynamic Decision Support for Resource Offloading in Heterogeneous Internet of Things environments

Computation offloading is one of the primary technological enablers of the Internet of Things (IoT), as it helps address individual devices’ resource restrictions. In the past, offloading would always utilise remote cloud infrastructures, but the …

Post quantum proxy signature scheme based on the multivariate public key cryptographic signature

Proxy signature is a very useful technique which allows the original signer to delegate the signing capability to a proxy signer to perform the signing operation. It finds wide applications especially in the distributed environment where the entities …

On-the-fly Privacy for Location Histograms

An important motivation for research in location privacy has been to protect against user profiling, i.e., inferring a user's political affiliation, wealth level, sexual preferences, religious beliefs and other sensitive attributes. Existing …

Optimizing Investments in Cyber Hygiene for Protecting Healthcare Users

Cyber hygiene measures are often recommended for strengthening an organization’s security posture, especially for protecting against social engineering attacks that target the human element. However, the related recommendations are typically the same …
