However, due to the open nature of Internet connectivity, Io T brings a big challenge for the security community; hackers may exploit critical vulnerabilities in a wide range of Io T applications and devices for carrying out their nefarious activities.
As a result, Io T security has already become an issue of high concern.
Further, this special issue will concentrate on traditional and emerging methods to design robust systems that protect streaming entertainment contents.
This also requires research in real-time approaches to accommodate industry needs.
The Internet of Things (Io T) facilitates the interconnection and data exchange of modern objects across every aspect of our lives, including our homes, cars, and even our bodies.
It is estimated that Io T will consist of nearly 30 billion objects by 2020.
In the era of big data, data intelligence and data security are two closely related views.
Both data intelligence and data security are very important research topics, and present constant challenges for academia and industry.
Yet, biometric identification tools are also frequently attacked by sophisticated attackers aiming both at committing commercial frauds and acts of terrorism.
Although the goals of multimedia and biometric forensics are different, they have strong similarities in purposes and tools.
