Manuscript Topics
Along with the development of computer technology and the popularity of software for multimedia information processing, we have witnessed an increasing number of security incidents about hacking, security breaches, data manipulation, social engineering, and new attacks against many online systems and services, many of which are related to multimedia data and/or devices. For instance, malware is hidden within an image file on a web site, and any user who visits the website can get its machine infected immediately after its web browser displays the image. Therefore, information security, forensic and privacy for multimedia have been becoming more and more important in recent years. We invite researchers who are working on new and innovative methods, techniques, and applications in information security, forensic and privacy for multimedia to submit papers for this special issue.
