Abstract

Cloud computing has emerged as a new technological domain in the IT industry. Currently, several organizations working in various domains, such as healthcare, finance, manufacturing, smart grid, Internet of Things (IoT), and IT, are increasingly integrating cloud computing with their traditional applications. The key idea behind the usage of cloud computing in IoT is to increase efficiency without compromising the data quality. When it comes to collecting data of thousands or millions of servers, the cloud offers scalability and reduces the computational load on each sensor. The highly configured servers in the cloud are very useful in processing and analyzing the sensors' data. The security of such a shared infrastructure is very crucial. It is the major barrier in the adoption of cloud-based services, followed by issues regarding compliance, privacy, and legal matters. The digitalization of critical infrastructures, such as smart grids (SGs), brings advantages and opportunities for remote access and control. It enables intelligent and online monitoring of these systems, which considerably enhances cyberattacks' vulnerability. Cyberattacks are among the most important threats to SGs. Therefore, efficient control systems should be designed that can detect and isolate cyberattacks to keep the SG reliable and secure operation. This special section aims at providing a forum to discuss the most recent advances on security and privacy in cloud-assisted IoT and SG applications.
