*Special Issue on **Theoretical Foundations for Big Data Security and

*IEEE Transactions on Big Data*


Big data is one of the hottest research topics in science and technology
communities, and it possesses a great application potential in every sector
of human society. However, security and privacy, especially theoretical
foundations of them, are critical barriers for extensive applications of
big data. We have seen the vulnerability of the available privacy
preserving data publishing methods against the dramatic development of
mining techniques. We also meet the challenges to apply strict privacy
protection frameworks (e.g., differential privacy) in practice. In terms of
cryptography, we are experiencing the extraordinary efficiency problem
given the volume and scale of big data. Moreover, we have to handle the
existing and emerging attack methods in the big data environment. In
summary, it is time for us to face the challenges. We have to improve or
adjust the existing security and privacy techniques, even invent new tools
and techniques, to accommodate the new problems and challenges in the age
of big data.

The purpose of this special issue is to solicit the latest outputs of
theoretical foundations and mechanisms in big data security and privacy.
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:

·        Privacy awareness of data mining in big data

·        Threat and Vulnerability Analysis in Big Data

·        Architecture for Security and Privacy in Big Data

·        Network Security, Privacy in Big Data

·        Network Forensics in Big Data

·        Anonymous Communication in Big Data

·        Physical Layer Security in Big Data

·        Privacy and Security in Cloud Data

·        Privacy and Security in Data Center Networks

·        Attacks and Counter Measures in Big Data

·        Information Forensics in Big Data

·        Identity Management and Key Management in Big Data

·        Intrusion Detection and Response in Big Data

·        Security and Privacy in Complex Networks

·        Malware and Virus Detection in Big Data
