* Computer and network forensics

* Cyber deterrence strategies

* Data and application security

* Data protection and integrity

* Game-theoretic security technologies

* Implementation and evaluation of networked security systems

* Information-theoretic security

* Intrusion detection, prevention, and response

* Key management, public key infrastructures, certification, revocation, and authentication

* Malware detection and mitigation

* Security metrics and models

* Physical-layer and cross-layer security technologies

* Security and privacy for big data

* Security and privacy for data and network outsourcing services

* Security and privacy for mobile and wearable devices

* Security and privacy in cellular networks

* Security and privacy in cloud and edge computing

* Internet Security: Protocols, standards, measurements
