Dr. Neelam Ruhil chaired the session whose objective was to identify the latest, emerging research topics, and define the future of Cloud and Mobile Security. Mobile and Cloud is the latest extension of an evolution in distributed computing that takes advantage of technological advances. Deploying confidential information and critical IT resources in the cloud raises concerns about vulnerability to attack, especially because of the anonymous, multi-tenant nature of cloud computing. Mobile devices are a part of our life. People use their devices to stay in touch, take pictures, shop and bank. In addition, they store personal and business information on them. As the number of phones grows, security risks will increase too. Mobile security can be compromised due to design flaws, susceptibilities, and protocol failures in any mobile and other threats. This session encouraged researchers and scholars to learn new technologies.
Dr. Neelam Ruhil addressed the presenters by sharing her experience on mobile and web application and how these applications are useful and important for paying their utility bills or making other money transactions. The session chairs also shared their knowledge on Computing for Sustainable Global Development and announced the session open. Several quality papers related to cloud management, security issues in cloud Computing, scalable web architectures, cloud data governance, trusted cloud computing platform, data communication and security were presented by researchers and academicians. Some research scholars and students also presented their review papers and explained their future work in the related field.
Total SEVEN papers were presented at the special session convened by Dr. Ruhil. The particulars of the papers are as follows:
1. Web Data Mining - A Perspective of Research Issues and Challenges Kavita, Priyanka Mahani & Neelam Ruhil.
2. Online voting system linked with Aadhar - Vishal, Vibhu Chinmany and Rishabh Garg.
3. Digital Watermarking – Effectiveness and Implications on Anti - Circumvention Prateek Chakaraverty.
