In recent years, supervised machine learning methods (e.g. k nearest neighbors, Bayes' theorem, decision tree, support vector machine, random forest, neural network, convolutional neural network, recurrent neural network, long short-term memory network, gated recurrent unit network), unsupervised machine learning methods (e.g. association rules, k-means, density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise, hierarchical clustering, deep belief networks, deep Boltzmann machine, auto-encoder, de-noising auto-encoder, etc.), reinforcement learning methods (e.g. generative adversarial network, deep Q network, trust region policy optimization, etc.) and federated learning methods have been applied to trust, security and privacy in computing and communications. For instance, machine learning methods have been used to analyze the behaviors of the data stream in networks and extract the patterns of malicious activities (packet dropping, worm propagation, jammer attacks, etc.) for generating rules in intrusion detection systems. Furthermore, time-series methods (e.g. local outlier factor, cumulative sum, adaptive online thresholding, etc.) have been proposed to retrieve the time-series features of anomalous behaviors for preventing cyber-attacks and malfunctions.
While the area of machine learning methods for trust, security and privacy in computing and communications is a rapidly expanding field of scientific research, several open research questions are still needed to be discussed and studied. For instance, using and improving machine learning methods for malicious activity detection, attack detection, mobile endpoint analyses, repetitive security task automation, zero-day vulnerability prevention and other security applications are the important issues in computing and communications. This special issue named “Machine Learning for Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications” in EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking will solicit papers on the following topics across various disciplines of trust, security and privacy in computing and communications.
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
